Sweet Tooth – Picture: DC / Netflix

Netflix is stepping on the toes of DC Comics and Warner with its latest comic book adaptation in Sweet Tooth. Scheduled to arrive in June 2021, the new fantasy drama is sure to intrigue millions of subscribers worldwide. We have everything you need to know about Sweet Tooth, including the plot, cast, trailer, and Netflix release date.

Sweet Tooth is an upcoming Netflix Original fantasy-drama series based on the DC comic book of the same name by author Jeff Lemire. The series was originally ordered by Hulu but after almost two years of development, it switched hands to Netflix.

Robert Downey Jr. and his wife and filmmaker Susan Downey are two of the four executive producers on the series. Warner Bros. Television, alongside DC Entertainment and Team Downey, are the production companies behind the Original. Which makes it all the more surprising that the drama didn’t end up on HBO Max.
