Netflix has officially renewed the adaptation of Jim Mickle’s hit fantasy series sweet tooth For the third and final season. The renewal comes a week after the upcoming drama returned with eight new episodes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the second season garnered more than 48 million viewing hours during its first four days.
In a statement from Mikkel, he confirmed that the final chapter will see Gus Christian Convery embarking on an adventure in the Arctic. It was also revealed that Netflix has already completed filming the third season in New Zealand.
“In many ways, it’s exactly the story I imagined we’d be telling and in many ways it takes on its own life,” said Mickle. “In the beginning, I think you set out to tell these standout pieces of Gus’s story and the big pieces of the comic book, but the beauty of the long storytelling and Gus’ journey over the course of 24 episodes is that the characters themselves tell you what they want to be. The crew and cast bring so much depth. And perspectives for who the characters are, where they come from, and where they’re going. Season 3 is an arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic story. Joss will see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in season one or two.”
