Netflix has finally released the first teaser trailer for the Sweet Tooth series, an adaptation of DC’s eponymous comic book series. The trailer reveals a first look at the character of Will Forte trying his best to protect the hybrid deer-boy from the bad people who still hunt his species.

Sweet Tooth is a family adventure that focuses on a very special deer-boy – Gus, who leaves his home in the woods to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event.
