The eight part Netflix adaptation was a hit when it was released this month, but will it be returning for a second season and who will be in the cast? Find out here.

Sweet Tooth is a long-awaited series, which follows a part-human, part-deer boy named Gus.

The show, which is adapted from Jeff Lemire's comic book series of the same name, tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world which sees the emergence of hybrid children due to a mysterious virus sweeps the globe.

Unfortunately for lead character Gus, who is played by 11 year old Christian Convery, and the kids like him, hybrid hunters are out to kill them.

The concept may not sound like it's for everyone, but it's absolutely captured the imaginations of children and grown-ups alike, while trending on the platform since its release on 4 June 2021.

Now that season one of the show, which comes courtesy of Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan Downey's production company, has drawn to a close, fans are asking the question: Will there be Sweet Tooth season two? Find out below, plus learn more about the show's cast, here.

Will there be a season 2 of Sweet Tooth?

It's not yet clear if there will be a second season of the series, but things are looking pretty promising.

The first season only covered a third of the original story, so we have to assume there's a at least another on its way.

The first helping of the show was only released last week, so keep an eye on Netflix for any more announcements.

Until then. Watch the season one trailer here:
