Netflix has renewed “sweet tooth” for a third and final season, already filmed in New Zealand, the streamer announced.
“In a lot of ways it’s exactly the story I envisioned, and in a lot of ways it takes on a life of its own. I think at the beginning you set out to tell those milestones of Gus’ story and the big chunks of the comic, but the beauty of the long storytelling and 24-episode Gus’ journey is that the characters themselves tell you what she wants to be say. “The crew and cast bring so much depth and perspective to who the characters are, where they came from and where they’re going,” said creator, showrunner and executive producer Jim Mickle.
Mickle continued, “Season 3 is an arctic tale filled with exciting new adventures and we hope it will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic story.” Gus will see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2 has seen.”
In addition, the series will make some additions to the cast in the upcoming chapter. Rosalind Chao (“Better Things,” “Mulan”), who plays Zhao, became a fixture on the series alongside Amy Seimetz (“No Sudden Move,” “Pet Sematary”), who plays Birdie. Cara Gee (“The Expanse”, “Call Of The Wild”) will be a regular in Season 3 alongside Ayazhan Dalabayeva. Gee will star as Siana and Dalabayeva as Nuka.
The news comes shortly after the release of the second season, which quickly racked up 48.3 million hours of views in the first four days of release after its April 27 debut.
In addition to Mickle, the series is produced by Beth Schwartz, Susan Downey, Robert Downey Jr. through her team Downey-Banner along with Evan Moore, Amanda Burrell and Linda Moran. Mickle also acts as director. “Sweet Tooth” is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
