Sweet Tooth: What does the show cover in its first few episodes?
According to Sweet Tooth’s official description, the series takes place about ten years after a tragic event known as the Great Collapse. This event spread chaos in all parts of the world, even causing mysterious hybrid beings to appear.
These babies — who were born half human, half animal — posed a great danger to humanity. In this way, as the causes for their emergence had not been discovered, they were isolated from the rest of the population. It is in this context that Gus (Christian Convery), living in a house in the forest, develops a friendship with the nomad Jepperd (Nonso Anozie).
From there, the two set out on an extraordinary journey, traveling across the country in search of answers about the origins of the hybrid boy and also about Jepperd’s past. Gradually, other characters come your way.
