SWEET TOOTH Season 3 is on Netflix and we know this will be the last season which means you’ll finally get definitive answers along the way. Read our Sweet Tooth final season review here!

SWEET TOOTH Season 3 on Netflix continues the post-apocalyptic fairy tale. It takes place in a world where humans are getting infected by “the sick” and the next generation is often born as hybrids – all kinds of human and animal combinations.

I’ve loved this world and its characters since season 1. Okay, fine, I don’t exactly love the villains but they’re still entertaining. As much as the main characters are kids, this is not a series for kids. It’s a very brutal world and little mercy is shown.

Who will survive season 3?

The big question in this final season of Sweet Tooth on Netflix is: Who will survive?

Apart from that, we also have a lot of questions from the previous season that we’re dying (pun definitely not intended) to get answers to. So are the characters as they head out on their great adventure to find Sweet Tooth’s mom, Birdie, in Alaska.

With Sweet Tooth season 2, our group of hybrid children (and the human adults who help them) defeated General Abbot. He was the main villain and met his end at Pubba’s Cabin.

He was a cool villain, but don’t worry, the world has plenty of villains left. Some are very active while others are minor villains in the sense that they just refuse to help those in need. Not really villains, but certainly not one of the “good guys” either.

In this post-apocalyptic world, so many have already lost their lives. However, the core topic of this final season continues to deal with survival as a main focus.

Among the new characters, we’re seeing some familiar actors cast. From Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker) to Cara Gee (The Expanse) and Ayazhan Dalabayeva (Night Swim).

Sweet Tooth: Season 3 – Review | Netflix Post-apocalyptic fairy tale

Going to Alaska – and winter is coming!

In season 3, we see Gus (Christian Convery) aka Sweet Tooth, Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) aka Big Man, and sisters Becky (Stefania LaVie Owen) and Wendy (Naledi Murray) – one a hybrid and the other her older sister – as they embark on a journey to Alaska.

They are heading to Alaska to search for Gus’s mother, Birdie. She has been working tirelessly to uncover the mysterious origins of the deadly Sick. It appears she has a connection to Gus, and he feels that she needs her.

There is a minor (or major, really) problem in heading to Alaska; Winter is coming. Also, the group is taking off in a car with a finite amount of fuel, so they know they will have to continue on foot.

Before the end of episode 1, the four are heading towards the Rocky Mountains. On foot!

It’s an uphill battle in both the actual and symbolic sense!

Part of the symbolism comes in the form of a dark force we will come to know as Helen Zhang (Rosalind Chao). She’s bound to be a new fan favorite as many villains are.

Helen Zhang was not a part of the Sweet Tooth comic book, so there’s something new for everyone. A core subject is that of motherhood. Obviously in terms of Gus and his mother, Birdie, but also with Helen Zhang, as her daughter is pregnant.

Get ready to finally find out the answer to the ultimate existential question of Sweet Tooth with Season 3: Who will survive and inherit the Earth?

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
