Everything we know about ‘Sweet Tooth’ season three

Sweet Tooth ventures into a dystopian world where humanity grapples with its survival after a viral outbreak that has led to the curious emergence of hybrid children. This premise may not seem like it is reinventing the wheel for post-apocalyptic survival stories, but it has caught the attention of viewers and charmed its way into their hearts steadily.

The series, based on Jeff Lemire’s comic book, follows Gus, a human-deer hybrid, as he navigates through the remnants of society in search of safety and answers. Sweet Tooth has heart and humour and even snuck in a tale of hope in there. So, it isn’t surprising that it has become a beloved tale for audiences of all ages.

Unlike many TV shows which get the untimely axe during the streaming era, Sweet Tooth will get to wrap up its story in its third and final season. So, thankfully, we can expect a satisfying conclusion and not the agony of a cliffhanger end.

As we eagerly anticipate the third, which is about to end with its final season, let’s delve into what lies ahead for Gus and his companions.

What is Sweet Tooth season three about?

The upcoming season takes Gus and his allies on a new journey to Alaska, where they will be seeking refuge in the icy wilderness. 

Showrunner Jim Mickle has promised an Arctic adventure filled with excitement and challenges as Gus encounters unfamiliar landscapes and the complexities of human nature. “[It’s] another road trip story like Season one, but in a very different way,” Mickle told Tudum.

Season three promises a satisfying end and a darker tone as Gus confronts the harsh realities of a strange world while undergoing growing pains. “In Season 3, everybody is dealing with some kind of wound or emotional loss, whether that was somebody in their life or a part of themselves,” Mickle explained further. “Everybody is looking inward and looking to move on and ultimately learning that life doesn’t stop. You have to keep putting one foot in front of another.”

Who is in the cast of Sweet Tooth season three?

Joining the familiar faces of Gus (Christian Convery) and Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) are new series regulars Cara Gee (of Expanse fame) as Siana and Ayazhan Dalabayeva (from Miracle Workers) as Nuka. Additionally, Rosalind Chao’s Zhang and Amy Seimetz’s Birdie take on more prominent roles in the final season. 

When is Sweet Tooth season three being released?

Set to premiere in 2024, Sweet Tooth season three will conclude Gus’ epic journey over eight episodes. Netflix hasn’t yet announced a release date or window, but we are likely to get it in the later part of 2024 unless there are any unseemly delays. Netflix has also revealed that the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes did not delay the third season of Sweet Tooth as it was already shot before they took place.

Is there a trailer for Sweet Tooth season three?

While a trailer has yet to be released, Netflix has unveiled the first look as well as the official teaser for season three of Sweet Tooth. They offer glimpses of Gus and his friends as they set forth on their final adventure.
