Sweet Tooth is the hit Netflix series about a lovable half-antler, half-human boy searching for a new beginning in a post-apocalyptic world.

Based on the popular DC comic book series by Jeff Lemires, this fairytale drama has proved a hit in the UK and is currently ranking number one on the streaming platform.

Fans of the show are now keen to know if there’s likely to be a second season of the heart-warming series.

Here’s everything we know so far.

Sweet Tooth is a new drama series released on streaming platform Netflix.

It tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world which has seen the emergence of hybrid children, who are part human and part animal, as a result of a mysterious worldwide virus.

Lead character Gus is characterised by a pair of horns on his head, while other children’s “mutations” include wings, snouts and beaks.

Guided by “gruff protector” Jepperd, Gus seeks a new world away from the woods that have been his home, but must escape the clutches of hybrid hunters who are out to kill him and those like him.

It was adapted for Netflix from a comic book series, and produced by Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan under their production company Team Downey.

Who stars in Sweet Tooth?

Christian Convery is the 11-year-old actor who plays Gus in Sweet Tooth.

He has been acting since the tender age of seven, and has appeared in Supernatural, Marvel’s Legion and Lucifer.

Nonso Anozie stars as Gus’ companion, Tommy Jepperd.

He starred as Xaro Xhoan Daxos in Games of Thrones, and has performed in other major fantasy projects such as Artemis Fowl, Disney’s Cinderella and Ender’s Game.

Saturday Night Live veteran Will Forte plays Gus’ father. He has appeared in 30 Rock, The Last Man on Earth, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Gravity Falls.

Will there be a second season of Sweet Tooth?

It’s currently unknown whether a second season of Sweet Tooth is planned, but as the first series only covered a third of the original story, we remain hopeful that there’s another in the works.

With season one only dropping on Netflix in early June, it’s still early days for producers to announce further news of a second series, although it’s popularity is a positive sign.

As soon as we know more, we’ll let you know.

How can I watch Sweet Tooth?

The entire first season of Sweet Tooth is now streaming on Netflix.
