Good and bad news for all fans of “Sweet Tooth”: Netflix streaming service has extended the fantasy series for a third season, but this will also be the end. This has now been announced via the official Instagram account for “Sweet Tooth”.

Meanwhile, US site Variety quotes series creator, showrunner and producer Jim Mickle as saying, “In a lot of ways, it turned out to be the story we wanted to tell.” The fact that he can say this with certainty is due to the fact that the final third season has already been shot, as the report shows. So the journey of little boy Gus (Christian Convery, 13), who was born with deer antlers, will span 24 episodes.

The Netflix Original is an adaptation of the comic of the same name, set in a world that is as imaginative as it is post-apocalyptic. The main character, Gus, is a rare human-animal hybrid. The template has therefore already been described as “Mad Max meets Bambi”.

When exactly the third and final season will land on Netflix is ​​not yet known. However, the fans won’t have to wait long given the fact that filming in New Zealand has already been completed. And the Instagram post also says “Coming Soon”. The second season was only released by the streaming provider on April 27 of this year and entered the charts at number two.
