It may seem as if all shows set in a post-apocalyptic world are the same, but Netflix’s Sweet Tooth would beg to differ. Based on the hit Vertigo Comics series, the cataclysmic event at the center of it has wiped out much of humanity but left others as half-human/half-animal hybrids. The danger hasn’t lessened at all, though.
Sweet Tooth’s second season picks up where the first left off, with 10-year-old Gus, a half-deer hybrid, captured by the Last Men who hunt others like him. While his friend Big Man tries to find a way to free all of the hybrids, Gus and a ragtag group of captives must survive the evil General Abbott.
The series stars Christan Convery, Nonso Anozie, James Brolin, Adeel Akhtar, Stefania LaVie Owen, Dania Ramirez, Aliza Vellani, Naledi Murray, Neil Sandilands, Marlon Williams, Christopher Sean Cooper Jr., and Yonas Kibreab.
Jim Mickle, the director behind thrillers Cold in July and We Are What We Are, returns as series writer, director, and showrunner.
Sweet Tooth season 2 hits Netflix on April 27th. You can check out our review of the first season here.
As a deadly new wave of the Sick bears down, Gus (Christian Convery) and a band of fellow hybrids are held prisoner by General Abbot (Neil Sandilands) and the Last Men. Looking to consolidate power by finding a cure, Abbot uses the children as fodder for the experiments of captive Dr. Aditya Singh (Adeel Akhtar), who’s racing to save his infected wife Rani (Aliza Vellani). To protect his friends, Gus agrees to help Dr. Singh, beginning a dark journey into his origins and his mother Birdie’s (Amy Seimetz) role in the events leading up to The Great Crumble. Outside the Preserve, Tommy Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) and Aimee Eden (Dania Ramirez ) team up to break the hybrids free, a partnership that will be tested as Jepperd’s secrets come to light. As the revelations of the past threaten the possibility of redemption in the present, Gus and his found family find themselves on a collision course with Abbot and the evil forces that look to wipe them out once and for all.
