Netflix has ordered a renewal of the popular show Sweet Tooth for a second season. Like its first outing, season 2 will have a total of eight one-hour episodes.

Based on a DC Comic series written by Jeff Lemire, the show is set 10 years after an event known as the “Great Crumble,” which included a deadly virus and the emergence of animal-human hybrids. Sweet Tooth follows a young boy who is part-deer named Gus, played by Christian Convery, as he leaves his home to journey to the outside world. As he searches for answers about the mystery of the hybrid creatures, he joins a family of others like himself.

Sweet Tooth also stars Nonso Anozie as Jepperd, Adeel Akhtar as Dr. Singh, Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear, Will Forte as Richard, Dania Ramierez as Aimee Aden, Aliza Vellani as Rani Sign, and Neal Sandilands as General Abbot. The show also has a narrator, who is voiced by James Brolin.

“It’s been equally thrilling and heartwarming to experience how people around the world have been falling in love

with our deer-boy,” said executive producer and showrunner, Jim Mickle. “We couldn’t be more excited to continue our collaboration with Netflix and keep following Gus and his friends on their extraordinary journey.”

To say this show was popular at the time of its release is an understatement: 60 million member accounts on Netflix watched at least two minutes of Sweet Tooth in the first four weeks after its early June release, according to Netflix’s internal data. This ended up making it the top original series on Netflix in the second quarter.

There’s no release date for season 2 as yet ( it was just announced, after all) and it’s currently unknown when the filming is set to begin, but you can keep an eye on its official Twitter for updates about production.
