Gus starts a hybrid revolution in Sweet Tooth season 2 trailer

Any similarities between Netflix’s Sweet Tooth and HBO’s The Last of Us may be unintentional, but they are hard to deny in the latest trailer for the upcoming second season of the former. In The Last of Us, the cure to a plague that devastated humanity was in the body of a young girl named Ellie, and Sweet Tooth season 2 is also running with the idea that the human/animal hybrids can also heal the world — but only if they are sacrificed in the process. While Ellie never got to make her choice, Sweet Tooth‘s Gus (Christian Convery) has made his decision to stand up to his captors. And if he isn’t careful, it could be the Last of Gus!

The trailer opens with a look back at the origin of Gus and how he was created alongside his fellow hybrids. His mother/creator, Birdie (Amy Seimetz), says a voice-over about how she wanted to find him, only for the end of the world to get in the way. Unfortunately for Gus, he will have to free himself from the Last Men before he can resume his quest to find his mother. Thankfully, Gus’ friend and protector, Tommy Jepperd (Nonso Anozie), is doing everything he can to reunite with his young charge.

The first half of Manifest season 4 was released in December 2022. Fittingly, the final 10 episodes premiered on June 2, the "Death Date" on the show when the passengers of Flight 828 would finally realize their fate.

What was that fate? It was all revealed in the final episode. But first, the passengers had to go through a journey to get there.
