WATCH BELOW: Sweet Tooth official trailer

Original series Sweet Tooth dropped on the streaming giant in June and has already proven to be a huge hit.

The show, which was filmed in New Zealand and co-produced by Hollywood heavyweight Robert Downey Jr, follows Gus, a half-human and half deer boy.

In the fantasy series set 10 years after “The Great Crumble” when a terrible virus ravaged the planet, half-human, half-animal hybrids emerge and scientists struggle to figure out whether they are the result or the cause of the crisis.

We were hooked by the plot but as for the cast, there are a few members you may recognise…
