Will Sweet Tooth get a 3rd season? We have compiled all the important information about the future of the fantasy series on Netflix. Fans of the original can already breathe a sigh of relief.
After two years, Sweet Tooth reported back on Thursday with new episodes. The fantasy series from Netflix already celebrated its premiere in 2021. After that, however, it disappeared into oblivion. Now, season 2 is finally streaming, opening the next chapter in the epic story.
If you’ve already watched all eight episodes, there’s one question above all: Will the series continue? Or will Sweet Tooth suffer the same sad fate that far too many Netflix series have suffered in recent weeks and months? Fear not, the future of the fantasy adventure is safe!
Fantasy on Netflix: Sweet Tooth season 3 as good as certain
While many Netflix series have to fear for renewal, Sweet Tooth has long been one step ahead. The streaming service has officially renewed the fantasy series for a 3rd season. And the best news is that the new episodes have already been shot.
When will Sweet Tooth season 3 start on Netflix?
It is not yet possible to say when the 3rd season of Sweet Tooth will start on Netflix. Considering the previous start dates of the first two seasons, it’s doubtful that the sequel will arrive as early as April 2024. After all, Sweet Tooth is a lavishly produced fantasy series. However, since season 3 has already been shot, it could still arrive sooner than the last season.

- Nonso Anozie as Tommy Jepperd
- Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Singh
- Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear

How does Sweet Tooth season 3 continue on Netflix?
The plot of Sweet Tooth is based on the comic book template of the same name by Jeff Lemire, which was published from 2009 to 2021 in a total of 46 issues. Thus, there is still plenty of material that can be filmed in future seasons. Particularly interesting for the 3rd season should be more details about the virus that has wiped out much of humanity in the world of Sweet Tooth.
Series creator and showrunner Jim Mickle promises a satisfying conclusion to the story, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
In many ways, we’re telling exactly the story I always imagined. Season 3 is an arctic tale with exciting new adventures and we hope it will be a satisfying conclusion as of. Gus will discover a side of the world and humanity that he hasn’t seen in the first two seasons.Jim Mickle
In season 2, we already learn more about the origin story of the virus that was first detected in Alaska. Since Sweet Tooth took some creative liberties in the course of the first two seasons, it can be assumed that the creative minds behind the project will continue to make their own decisions independent of the comics. It remains exciting to see how the series will develop.
