Sweet Tooth (Warner Bros. Television/Netflix)

Netflix has released a first look teaser and images for their upcoming adaption of Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth. The series, from executive producer Robert Downey Jr. is a post-apocalyptic fairytale about a hybrid deer-boy who goes on an extraordinary adventure. The series comes to Netflix on 4th June.

Watch the new trailer in the player below:

The comic, if you’re unfamiliar with it, was the brainchild of Jeff Lemire, who both wrote and illustrated the series for Vertigo from 2009 through early 2013. Running forty issues in total, the book built a post-apocalyptic world based on rural sensibilities, and featured Gus befriending a world-weary drifter named Tommy Jepperd and setting off to find a rumored safe haven for animal hybrid children like Gus. Along the way, they wind up getting mixed up with a frightening cult that experiments on hybrid children and discovering the truth about what happened to the world. The book gets its name from Gus’ unbridled love of candy and sweets.

Fans who have read the comic will tell you that Sweet Tooth is something of a unique book for Vertigo. While it does get dark at times and can be violent, Sweet Tooth has a gentleness to it as well, embodied largely through the grizzled Jepperd’s deepening relationship with Gus. More than anything, it’s a character driven story, with an unusual young hero at its core that you can’t help but feel for, making it the perfect adventure for the small screen.

Executive produced by Team Downey’s Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey, Sweet Tooth stars Christian Convery (Beautiful Boy, Tiger Rising, Playing With Fire), Nonso Anozie (The Laundromat, Zoo, Game of Thrones), Adeel Akhtar (Les Misérables [TV series], Victoria & Abdul, The Big Sick) and Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth, Saturday Night Live), with James Brolin (Life in Pieces, Amityville Horror, Westworld) as the voice of the narrator. Jim Mickle and Beth Schwartz serve as co-showrunners.
