Netflix has announced that the post-apocalyptic drama Sweet Tooth is officially coming back for a second season.
The first season ended on a cliffhanger, and the finale made it clear that there was much more to the story of the hybrid deer boy Gus and his protector, Big Man. The TV series is adapted from the limited comic book series of the same name published by DC Comics’s Vertigo.
The Netflix series dials down the graphic violence and darkness of the source material by Jeff Lemire, and goes for a more lush fairy tale-like atmosphere in its depiction of a post-apocalytic world and human/animal hybrid characters.
The streamer made the season renewal official on Thursday (July 29), with a Twitter video featuring several cast members opening a package with a giant bar of chocolate with "Sweet Tooth Season 2" embossed.

The next installment will pick right back up with Gus (Christian Convery) and Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) on their various paths. Creators Jim Mickle (Stake Land, Cold in July) will return to oversee the series.
Produced by Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, Sweet Tooth season 1 co-starred Adeel Akhtar (Murdered by My Father), Aliza Vellani (Upload), Stefania LaVie Owen (Krampus), Dania Ramirez (Once Upon a Time), Neil Sandilands (The Flash), with Will Forte (MacGruber) and James Brolin as the show’s narrator.
No release date has been announced yet for Sweet Tooth's second season.
