Netflix has released the first trailer and images for Sweet Tooth, the upcoming adaptation of Jeff Lemire’s DC/Vertigo comic book series of the same name which follows young hybrid deer-boy who befriends a wandering loner and embarks on adventure across America ten years after ‘The Great Crumble’ wreaked havoc upon the world.
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.
Sweet Tooth premieres on Netflix on June 4th and stars Christian Convery, Nonso Anozie, Adeel Akhtar, Will Forte, Dania Ramirez, Neil Sandilands, Stefania LaVie Owen, Aliza Vellani and James Brolin.
