Sweet Tooth season 3 will be the end for the Netflix series

Netflix has confirmed that Sweet Tooth season 3 has already wrapped production and will be the end of the series

Season 2 of the series Sweet Tooth, which is an adaptation of the DC Vertigo comic book that ran from 2009 to 2013 for a total of 40 issues, was just released through the Netflix streaming service at the end of April (you can read our review HERE). Now The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Netflix has ordered a third season of the show – in fact, production on the season has already taken in place in New Zealand and it’s now wrapped! Netflix has also confirmed that Sweet Tooth season 3 will be the final season of the show.

Created by Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth was a coming-of-age fable of Gus, a boy/deer hybrid who leaves home to find the world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of hybrids and humans searching to find answers behind the event… ultimately discovering a vast conspiracy that forces him to question his very existence.

The cast of the series adaptation includes Christian Convery as Gus, Nonso Anozie as Jepperd, Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Singh, Will Forte as Richard, Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear, Dania Ramirez as Aimee Eden, Aliza Vellani as Rani Singh, Naledi Murray as Wendy, Amy Seimetz as Birdie, Neil Sandilands as General Abbot, and Marlon Williams as Johnny Abbot, with James Brolin as the voice of the narrator. For season 2, Christopher Sean Cooper Jr. and Yonas Kibreab joined the cast as new series regulars, playing Teddy Turtle and Finn Fox.

Jim Mickle is the showrunner on Sweet Tooth and executive produces the show alongside Susan Downey, Robert Downey Jr., Amanda Burrell, and Linda Moran. The series is produced by Team Downey, in association with Warner Bros. Television. Team Downey’s Evan Moore is co-executive producer.

Mickle provided the following statement: “In a lot of ways, it’s exactly the story that I imagined we would tell and in a lot of ways it takes on its own life. At the beginning, I think you set out to tell these landmark pieces of Gus’ story and the big pieces of the comic book, but the beauty of long-form storytelling and Gus’ journey over 24 episodes is the characters themselves tell you what they want to be. The crew and cast bring so much depth and point of view to who the characters are and where they’ve come from and where they’re going. Season three is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in season one or two.

Amy Seimetz’s character Birdie is being promoted to series regular status for Sweet Tooth season 3, and so is Rosalind Chao’s character Mrs. Zhang, who was introduced at the end of season 2. Cara Gee (The Expanse) and newwcomer Ayazhan Dalabayeva are new additions to the cast.
