Some good news after so many recent cancellations of beloved Netflix programmes, the dystopian drama Sweet Tooth has been renewed for a second series.
Announced in a video on Twitter from showrunner Jim Mickle, the caption read “Hope you saved room for more? #SweetTooth,” and featured various members of the show’s cast, including Nonso Anozie, Christian Convery and Neil Sandilands.
Eight new one-hour episodes have been ordered by Netflix, which saw the show prove to be the most successful series in the second quarter with 60 million accounts tuning into the fantasy series, just ahead of Shadow and Bone with 55 million views and part two of Lupin with 54 million views.
“It’s been equally thrilling and heartwarming to experience how people around the world have been falling in love with our deer-boy,” commented Mickle in a statement. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our collaboration with Netflix and keep following Gus and his friends on their extraordinary journey”.
Previous to the announcement, Convery commented in an interview with Collider, “If there is a Season 2, I already have a whole plot in my head for what might happen. In my head, based off some parts of the comic book and my imagination, what I’d say is that Aimee and Jepperd go and rescue the hybrids together”.
Continuing, the young actor noted, “They also rescued Dr. Singh and his wife, Rani. And then, together, they take down Abbot and then go find Birdie, and then maybe encounter a new enemy”.
Sweet Tooth is streaming right now on Netflix worldwide.
