Netflix has released a trailer and images for the second season of the streamer’ acclaimed adaptation of Jeff Lemire’s DC/Vertigo comic book series Sweet Tooth.
Season 2 sees Gus and his fellow hybrids held captive by General Abbot and the Last Men who use the children as experimental subjects in the search for a cure for the Sick. But together with the captive Dr. Singh, Gus works to save his friends and uncover the origins of The Great Crumble.
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.
Sweet Tooth season 2 arrives on Netflix on April 27th.
