After a long wait, Netflix has announced that Sweet Tooth‘s second season will grace screens on April 27th. The series debuted last year and was a hit with fans, boasting an 88% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. Netflix greenlit a second season shortly after its premiere. Christian Convery, who plays Sweet Tooth (also known as Gus), is giving fans an early nugget on what to expect this season:
I know that I’m itching it find out what’s next but I really hope that Bobby’s okay because he’s the cutest thing in the world, right? Well, and of course… But you’ll just have to wait and watch season two to find out.Christian Convery
Executive producer Beth Schwartz shares that season two is a coming-of-age story where fans will see growth through different stages of life. A new synopsis for Season 2 gives an idea of what Gus will have to face.
As a deadly new wave of the Sick bears down, Gus (Christian Convery) and a band of fellow hybrids are held prisoner by General Abbot (Neil Sandilands) and the Last Men. Looking to consolidate power by finding a cure, Abbot uses the children as fodder for the experiments of captive Dr. Aditya Singh (Adeel Akhtar), who’s racing to save his infected wife Rani (Aliza Vellani). To protect his friends, Gus agrees to help Dr. Singh, beginning a dark journey into his origins and his mother Birdie’s (Amy Seimetz) role in the events leading up to The Great Crumble. Outside the Preserve, Tommy Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) and Aimee Eden (Dania Ramirez ) team up to break the hybrids free, a partnership that will be tested as Jepperd’s secrets come to light. As the revelations of the past threaten the possibility of redemption in the present, Gus and his found family find themselves on a collision course with Abbot and the evil forces that look to wipe them out once and for all.
