SWEET TOOTH: Gus Begins His Journey In Full Trailer For Netflix's DC Comics Adaptation
Netflix has released the full trailer for Sweet Tooth, an upcoming fantasy adventure show based on the acclaimed DC Comics series by Jeff Lemire. See little Gus in action after the jump...
Following a teaser earlier this month, Netflix has released the full trailer DC Comics adaptation, Sweet Tooth, and it should give fans a much better idea of what to expect.
Based on Jeff Lemire's comic of the same name, the story is set years after a mysterious event known as “The Great Crumble,” which results in the emergence of a race of human-animal hybrids. Sweet Tooth follows one such hybrid, an adorable little deer-boy named Gus, as he embarks on a perilous adventure with a fellow wandering loner named Jepperd.
This latest look at the show, which has Robert Downey Jr. on board as a producer, introduces some of the other characters Gus and the "Big Man" will encounter on their journey, including Doctor Singh, Wendy the pig girl, and the villainous Abbot.
“We wanted to make a show that offers escape and adventure, where nature is reclaiming the world and in many ways it feels like a fairytale," explains executive producer, writer, director, and co-showrunner Jim Mickle. "Sweet Tooth is a new kind of dystopian story, it’s very lush and hopeful. We want people to come into this world where there’s beauty and hope and adventure. This is a sweeping story — we ride on trains, climb mountaintops, run through forests. This is a show about what makes a family, what home really means, and why it’s important to keep faith in humanity.”
Check out the trailer below along with a new poster and some promo stills, and let us know what you think.

The eight-episode first season is set to hit Netflix on June 4.
