Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Sweet Tooth, its upcoming drama series adaptation based on characters created for DC Vertigo by Jeff Lemire. The series comes from Robert Downey Jr. and wife Susan Downey’s Team Downey and stars Christian Convery, Nonso Anozie, Adeel Akhtar and Will Forte, with James Brolin as the voice of the narrator.
Sweet Tooth follows the adventures of Gus (Convery) — part deer, part boy — who leaves his home in the forest to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself in search of answers about this new world and the mystery behind his hybrid origins. Brolin says as the trailer begins: “No one knew which came first, the hybrids or the virus. But that question would become the biggest mystery of our lifetime.” Gus is then seen on the run from hunters determined to stamp out hybrids, and is told: “Some bad people are still out there. They don’t like you because you’re different.”
Sweet Tooth is set to premiere June 4. Check out the trailer – here.
