It’s a big question, but unfortunately, there are no definitive answers yet. Netflix hasn’t renewed “Sweet Tooth” for Season 2, but since the first season premiered on June 4, it’s understandable that the streaming service doesn’t want to jump the gun yet. Then again, it’s not exactly uncommon for Netflix to cancel shows after their first season, especially if they’re on the big-budget side of things — which “Sweet Tooth” obviously is. Recently, the company pulled the plug on both “The Irregulars” and “Jupiter’s Legacy” after their initial seasons, so “Sweet Tooth” Season 2 isn’t a given until Netflix officially says so.
Even so, fans of this charming fantasy drama shouldn’t lose too much sleep over its potential cancellation. “Sweet Tooth” has plenty of prestige, as it’s produced by Hollywood heavyweight Robert Downey Jr., and fans and critics hold it in extremely high regard. Season 1 currently boasts an extremely impressive 98 percent Tomatometer rating on Rotten Tomatoes, along with a 92 percent audience score. It would also appear that Netflix has a bit of a soft spot for unique fantasy universes, seeing as the company recently announced Season 2 of “Shadow and Bone” (per Variety). As such, you might very well receive the news about another season of “Sweet Tooth” sooner rather than later.
If the show gets another season, expect the wheels to turn pretty quickly after the announcement. Christian Convery is an integral part of the show, and since actors of his age grow up extremely fast, the production needs to either resort to time skips or keep a healthy pace. Assuming that the show gets renewed soon, and the production hits the ground running, “Sweet Tooth” Season 2 could be good to go as early as mid-2022.
