We discuss whether there will be a Season 3 of the Netflix series Sweet Tooth and its renewed or canceled status.
Sweet Tooth is a fantasy drama series developed by Jim Mickle, based on the American comic book series of the same name, created by Jeff Lemire.
This post-apocalyptic Netflix original explores a modern-day society in which a deadly virus has wiped out nearly all of the human race.
At the same time as this pandemic hits, strange hybrid creatures start to be born. Society blames these hybrid babies for the end of civilization as we know it, but they may actually be the cure.
We follow one particular hybrid child, a deer boy called Gus (Christian Convery), who travels across America, searching for his mom.
In season two, Gus has found himself imprisoned with other hybrid children in a zoo. They are experimented on in this zoo by Dr. Aditya Singh (Adeel Akhtar), who has been forced to find a cure by any means necessary.
These hybrid children are taken individually and tortured for their specific medical properties.
While Gus and his new comrades fight to escape this deadly prison, his friends Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) and Aimee (Dania Ramirez) attempt to break into the zoo to free the hybrids before they are all killed. There are many other subplots in season two, but all roads lead back to this zoo.
With the release of eight new installments after a nearly two-year wait, fans will be desperate to know whether Sweet Tooth will be renewed for a third outing.
Will there be a Season 3 of Sweet Tooth – renewed or canceled status
Netflix is yet to confirm whether there will be a third season of Sweet Tooth or if the fantasy series will be canceled after just sixteen episodes.
The first season was extremely popular for the streaming platform, with Netflix renewing the series after a month of its initial release.
When announcing this renewal, Netflix revealed that Sweet Tooth had been watched by 60 million households, which is an impressive figure indeed. The reviews were equally remarkable, with season one scoring 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.
It remains to be seen if the second season will be as popular after such a large gap in productions, but all the signs seem to be pointing toward Netflix having another hit on its hands.
The second season follows a similar style and tone to the first, throwing in even more adorable critters for fans to fall in love with and far greater hazards for the hybrid creatures to endure.
If the viewing figures are half as good as the first season, then Netflix will be quick to renew the show once again.
I’d expect an announcement in the coming weeks or months on this one. As always, we will keep you posted on any updates on the pending renewal of Sweet Tooth.
