One more season in the forest.
Production has wrapped on the third and final season of Sweet Tooth–the Netflix horror-fantasy series based on the comic book creations of Jeff Lemire–according to a report on Deadline. No release date has yet been announced.
The show’s eight-episode second season–with creator, showrunner and executive producer Jim Mickle at the helm–debuted late last month.
In discussing the show’s final season, Mickle said, “In a lot of ways, it’s exactly the story I imagined we would tell–and in a lot of ways, it takes on its own life. The beauty of long-form storytelling and Gus’ journey over 24 episodes is that the characters themselves tell you what they want to be.”
Mickle described Season 3 as “an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2.”
The third season will also see some casting changes–with Rosaline Chao and Amy Seimetz promoted to regulars, and Cara Gee and Avazhan Dalabayeva joining as regulars.
The series began when Gus (Christian Convery)–part deer, part boy–leaves his forest home “to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event.” He soon joins a family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself “in search of answers about this new world and the mystery behind his origins.”
