Sweet Tooth Show Based On Comic Series Wraps Filming

Good news to kick off the new year: Netflix’s upcoming series Sweet Tooth has wrapped filming. The live-action show is adapted from Jeff Lemire’s comic book series of the same name, which follow a half-deer, half-boy named Gus. When Gus leaves his home in the forest and discovers that the world has been devastated by a cataclysmic event, he joins a team of animal-human hybrids to uncover the truth of what happened. Robert Downey Jr., Susan Downey, Amanda Burrell, Linda Moran, Jim Mickle, and Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz are executive producers on the project in association with Warner Bros. TV, with Mickle and Schwartz also serving as co-showrunners and co-writers.

According to Bleeding Cool, Lemire announced that Sweet Tooth finished filming in the most recent edition of his newsletter. He also told fans that the series will hit Netflix sometime in 2021. In the summer edition of his newsletter, Lemire said he couldn’t divulge too many details about the show, but shared that it would be 8 episodes long and was being filmed in New Zealand.

Check out Lemire’s full quote from his most recent newsletter titled “Happy New Year- Things to Come” below:

“The Netflix Sweet Tooth TV show recently completed filming and will be releases [sic] sometime this year!”

The show stars Christian Convery (Beautiful Boy) as Gus alongside Adeel Akhtar (The Big Sick), Nonso Anozie (Game of Thrones), Will Forte (SNLThe Last Man on Earth), and James Brolin (Catch Me If You Can), who voices the narrator. But the Downeys are the biggest names attached to the project, and their involvement will certainly draw Marvel fans into the Sweet Tooth fanbase. Netflix has had major success with series based on comic books like The PunisherChilling Adventures of Sabrina, and The Umbrella Academy, and Sweet Tooth likely won’t be an exception.
