Sweet Tooth‘s second season recently released into the world. It added another excellent chapter to the comic-book-based series, which deftly combines darkness and hope to tell a fantastical story. And, of course, Sweet Tooth features a variety of endearing half-human, half-animal beings. But there’s bittersweet news for fans of the Netflix show. The streamer has officially announced that season three of Sweet Tooth will be its final one. Three chapters may be more than many shows receive these days, but it’s never fun to know the end is in sight.
Still, creator, showrunner, and executive producer Jim Mickle notes, “In a lot of ways, it’s exactly the story that I imagined we would tell and in a lot of ways it takes on its own life. At the beginning, I think you set out to tell these landmark pieces of Gus’ story and the big pieces of the comic book, but the beauty of long-form storytelling and Gus’ journey over 24 episodes is the characters themselves tell you what they want to be. The crew and cast bring so much depth and point of view to who the characters are and where they’ve come from and where they’re going.”
According to a release by Netflix, Sweet Tooth‘s third season has already been filmed. Mickle offers, “Season 3 is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2.”
New Sweet Tooth adventures for Gus, final adventures for us—but as Mickle notes, we’ll always have these 24 episodes.
