When is the Sweet Tooth season 2 release date? After a hit first season, the dystopian Netflix series was swiftly renewed for more. Following Gus, a ten-year-old human-animal hybrid who wanders a bleak landscape searching for refuge, the sci-fi series isn’t for the faint-hearted.

Based on the DC comic of the same name by Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth was developed for the screen by Jim Mickle. Originally intended for streaming service Hulu, it found its way onto Netflix, where it became another runaway success for the platform. Despite its gut-wrenching premise and narrative, many fell in love with cute little Gus, and happily binged all eight episodes of its premiere season.

Now, we want more, and thankfully, the powers that be are happy to provide. When can you indulge in the Sweet Tooth season 2 release date for more of the bittersweet delights of Gus’s journey? Who’ll be in it? And when can we expect to get a glimpse of the bittersweet delights of Gus’s journey? Unlike poor Gus, we can answer some of your questions, though others are still at the whim of the universe to divulge.

Sweet Tooth season 2 release date speculation

Right now, we don’t know the Sweet Tooth Season 2 release date. It looks increasingly doubtful that we’ll see Sweet Tooth season 2 get a release in 2022, but early to mid-2023 is still viable. This is absolutely speculation for now, but stay tuned for more.

Sweet Tooth was renewed in July 2021, just one month after season 1 became available. However, we might hear news on a release date relatively soon. Filming on season 2 began in New Zealand in January 2022, and it’s scheduled to run until May 2022. Convery posted on Instagram about being back on-set.

Sweet Tooth season 2 cast speculation

Obviously, Convery’s back for Sweeth Tooth season 2, and we can assume Nonso Anozie, Adeel Akhtar, Stefania LaVie Owen, Naledi Murray, and Neil Sandilands will all return for their respective roles too.

Beyond that, we can expect new Hybrids, more of the Last Men, and whatever other surprises the show has in store for us character-wise.

The comics kept a small cast of characters to feed into the loneliness and isolation of its themes and settings. The Netflix show has already expanded on that and is likely to again in order to flesh out the world.

Or perhaps, this will be it, and we’ll just have Gus, Big Man, and Pigtail endlessly trying to find salvation.

Sweet Tooth season 2 trailer speculation

Sweet Tooth season 2 doesn’t have a trailer, and we’re not sure when we’ll get one. Netflix tends to keep publicity close to its chest until we’re in the home stretch for the release date.

While it’s very much not a trailer, you can enjoy a Q’n’A with Christian Convery. He expertly dodges plot questions but provides some good banter.

Sweet Tooth season 2 Plot speculation

We have a rough idea what Sweet Tooth season 2 will be about. Though the TV series isn’t quite as dark as the comics, it’s still following the run relatively closely. At the end of the first season, The Last Men have Gus in captivity, with other Hybrids planning to save him.

We learned his mother is in Alaska, but what she’s doing there remains a mystery. Then we’ve got Big Man, Pigtail, and Bear, and each of their intertwined stories with Gus. In the comics, we don’t learn about the virus that caused such mutations in the human race until issue 26, but there’s a chance season 2 gets brave in its deviations and takes a different narrative path.

That’s everything we know so far about Sweet Tooth season 2. Check out our guides on Squid Game season 2, The Witcher season 3, and Hellbound season 2 if you’d like a quick pick-me-up.
