What is Sweet Tooth Season 2 about?
The first season takes place 10 years after a mysterious virus wipes out 98% of humanity that threw society into the Great Crumble, an era of debilitating chaos, where the birth of human-animal hybrid babies like Gus followed; however, it’s questioned if the hybrids are actually the cause of the disease or the result of the disease.
Per Netflix, Sweet Tooth Season two follows Gus and his fellow hybrids finding new strength as they uncover the origins of the Great Crumble:
A deadly new wave of the Sick is bearing down on humanity. Gus and a band of other child hybrids are held prisoner by the villainous General Abbot (Neil Sandilands) and the Last Men, a violent group of mercenaries who hunt hybrids. Abbot uses the children as fodder for the experiments of captive Dr. Aditya Singh (Adeel Akhtar); Abbot wants to find a cure and amass power, Dr. Singh simply wants to save his infected wife, Rani (Aliza Vellani).
Gus, always a hero, agrees to help Dr. Singh, thus beginning a dark journey into discovering his own origins. He may also learn more about his mother, Birdie’s (Amy Seimetz) role in the events leading up to the Great Crumble. Elsewhere, Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) and Aimee Eden (Dania Ramirez ) team up to free the hybrids, creating a partnership that will be tested as Jepperd’s secrets come to light.
Sweet Tooth Season 2 premiers on April 27.
The series also stars Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear, Naledi Murray as Wendy, Marlon Williams as Johnny Abbot, Christopher Sean Cooper Jr. as Teddy Turtle, Yonas Kibreab as Finn Fox, and James Brolin as the voice of the narrator.
