A live-action adaptation of the DC Comics 'Sweet Tooth' is coming to Netflix this June.
2021 is such an exciting year for Netflix. There are plenty of movies and titles coming out, and some of them are astonishing.
One of the remarkable additions this year is the streaming giant's live-action adaptation of 'Sweet Tooth.' The upcoming Netflix Original fantasy-drama series is based on the DC comic book of the same name by author Jeff Lemire. We do not usually see the words DC and Netflix together, so the adaptation is a little surprising. 'Sweet Tooth' is originally ordered by Hulu in 2018 but was moved to Netflix in May 2020.
The DC fantasy drama is executive produced by Robert Downey Jr. and his wife and filmmaker Susan Downey. Production companies Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment are also behind the show. Knowing this, it is interesting that 'Sweet Tooth' did not end up in HBO Max.
Here is everything you need to know about 'Sweet Tooth.'
Release Date: June 4th, 2021.
'Sweet Tooth' is coming out on Netflix on June 4, 2021. The post-apocalyptic fairytale series will be available for streaming to all Netflix subscribers worldwide. All of the episodes will drop at once on the mentioned date.
Production for the series began in July 2020 in New Zealand. The team managed to get permission to film despite strict travel restrictions due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. The production experienced a short delay, but filming resumed in October 2020 and wrapped around mid-December that year.
Sweet Tooth is set at a mysterious time when hybrid humans, part human, and part animal, were born. The hybrids arrived at the same time that the virus “The Great Crumble” devastated the world. Nobody knows if the virus caused the birth of the hybrids or if it's the other way around. Despite the uncertainty, humans choose to hunt the hybrids, forcing them to hide. After 10 years of hiding in the secluded forest, Gus, a young hybrid deer-boy, teams up with a lone wanderer to search for clues. They ventured out of the forest sanctuary and travel across what's left of America, hoping to find the answer to the mystery.
'Sweet Tooth' will have a total of eight episodes. Each episode is likely to take 45-60 minutes of run time.
