Tv Season Info

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. Based on the DC comic book series by Jeff Lemire.

Critic Reviews for Sweet Tooth Season 1

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (16)

Packages real-world terrors in a fashion that at once confronts them honestly and contextualizes them in a way that's friendly for young teen viewers.

Jun 6, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

"Sweet Tooth" may not offer a full meal, but sometimes all you need is a good piece of chocolate.

Jun 4, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The performances are strong throughout -- Anozie is particularly remarkable -- but it's the consistently inventive writing and robust filmmaking that makes the project stand out.

Jun 2, 2021 | Full Review…

Sweet Tooth is especially compelling as many of us move toward some form of post-pandemic normalcy, raising questions about what new world awaits us after such tremendous, collective loss.

Jun 9, 2021 | Full Review…

There is a great deal of jeopardy along the way, but the scenes always come back to something reassuring, and there is no gore.

Jun 7, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

After so many months without leaving home for fear of the virus, watching Sweet Tooth could be a good idea: it is a loving hug that rests on ideas about tolerance, solidarity and empathy. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 13, 2021 | Full Review…

Sweet Tooth presents a terrifying and desperate situation without this closing the possibility of a bright future. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jun 13, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

My heart had sunk: not another dystopia/fantasy/gothic kids' tale gussied up to con adults into watching two-and-a-bit episodes? But it's really rather lovely.

Jun 9, 2021 | Full Review…

Sweet Tooth is an earnest adaptation elevated by strong characters, inspired performances, and the promise of more answers - and more questions - in its inevitable sophomore season.

Jun 9, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The series perfectly demonstrates how to tell several parallel stories and at the same time build a mythology around a cataclysmic event. [Full review in Spanish]

Jun 8, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Its anchored by a terrific performance from Convery, who infuses Gus with childlike wonder and a deep well of empathy. Anozie also shines as Jep, and the series does a great job of toeing the line between being sweet and cynical.

Jun 7, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sweet Tooth brings something strange and heartfelt to the ongoing slew of apocalyptic stories hitting the big and small screens... an excellent fantasy about facing a world suddenly changing in ways where one catastrophe impacts every facet of life.

Audience Reviews for Sweet Tooth: Season 1

  • 4h ago
    A lot of the characters are dumb and annoying, i know this is a family show but that's no excuse. Very slow pace and boring at times. It has its good things, the world building is fine, i don't doubt some people are going to love it. Decent background show.
  • 7h ago
    The art direction, costume/makeup design and color work on this film is impeccable.
  • 9h ago
    Easy to watch. It has some elements of Game of Thrones but in PG form. Entertaining tale, well-told but I do feel they ended season 1 rather abruptly.
  • 10h ago
    Sensitive and captivating. Great acting direction.
  • 11h ago
    The series frames a scenario not far from reality, as it shows us the fear of humanity and its reaction to a world hit by a pandemic, in turn reflecting how many times humanity is the true monster because of its fear of The unknown. The series also shows us the other side of the coin, one full of hope, goodness and innocence. A perfect and dreamlike combination, for me the best series of 2021.
  • 12h ago
    Great acting and terrific adapted screenplay.
  • 12h ago
    Una historia visual y narrativamente interesante.
  • 13h ago
    Slow developing and frustrating characters who continue to do things that put them in peril - similar to a horror movie where you just yell at the screen - "Don't open the door!" Caveat is that I knew nothing of this series other than the recommendation to watch it . I am afraid we are all so desperate for something to watch, when something is good (this is good) we overrate it as other shows are so poor.

    Wow, an amazing adaptation of a great comic series.

    TO NETFLIX: Keep this up. Make season 2. "Sweet Tooth" season 1 is beautifully put together and very engaging. The finale blew me away. I can't wait for season 2.
