Is Sweet Tooth Season 4 Happening?

Netflix has not announced that Sweet Tooth Season 4. However, we might have to wait since the third season has recently concluded, and Netflix might consider every possibility and analyze the viewership before giving the go-ahead. There are slim chances that it will happen since the third season was conclusive in itself.

The third season showcased Gus finally finding out who his mother is and it is Birdie. Since he wasn’t born, Birdie had created him in a lab by mixing human and animal DNAs. This technically made her his mother. Later in the finale, she dies which shocks him.

This puts an end to the storyline. Sweet Tooth Season 4 might have to go into a different storyline to explore since this one is complete. We can show him as a grownup and trying to start a family while facing different kinds of challenges.

Who Will Be In The Cast?

In terms of cast, Sweet Tooth Season 4 might have almost the same cast as the previous season. This includes Christian Convery (Gus), Nonso Anozie (Tommy Jepperd), Adeel Akhtar (Aditya Singh) and Stefania LaVie Owen (Bear).

If a time jump happens, we can expect Gus to be played as an adult actor. We might also see more new actors joining the cast if the setting takes place somewhere else.
