This comic to screen featurette dives into how “Sweet Tooth” came to life as a series, a look at our main characters and a tease at what audiences can expect with interviews from showrunners Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz, executive producers Susan Downey and Robert Downey Jr., cast members Christian Convery and Nonso Anozie as well as comic book creator Jeff Lemire.
Ten years ago “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers— about Gus’ origins, Jepperd’s past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.
Based on the DC comic book series by Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth is executive produced by Jim Mickle, Beth Schwartz, Robert Downey, Jr., Susan Downey, Amanda Burrell, and Linda Moran.
All episodes of Sweet Tooth arrive June 4th, only on Netflix.
