The series was produced by Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan Downey and is based on a DC comic of the same name.
Already receiving rave reviews, Sweet Tooth focuses on a boy’s journey through rural America.
He also has antlers thanks to a mysterious phenomenon that causes babies to become human-animal hybrids.
While the concept sounds bizarre, it ultimately becomes a story of friendship and humanity as a world turns away from you.
Here is everything you need to know …
What is “Sweet Tooth” about?
Sweet Tooth tells the story of Gus, a little boy born into a world that is falling apart.
Ten years ago, a disease called The Great Crumble left the world in ruins, and millions died after getting sick.
At the same time, babies are born partly human, partly animal, and it is not known whether one caused the other or not.
As a result, Gus has antlers.
However, people are attacking and persecuting the hybrids for fear that they are the cause of the Great Crumble and will banish them from society.
Gus has been successfully hiding for more than a decade and is soon forced on an adventure across the country to find safety.
