Being on the set of the series is actually what inspired Jeff Lemire to return to the world of the comics after bringing the initial story to a close, reminding him of what he initially loved so much about it. Lemire generally finishes a book and moves on to the next project, and he worked on Sweet Tooth for four years.
During the press junket for Sweet Tooth, Lemire said he was worried about messing with the book's ending, one that he was quite proud of.
"So, I didn't really have a good idea of how to get back in, but then when I got to go on set, and I was there and I saw the passion, and everything that Jim (Mickle, showrunner) and the cast and the crew were bringing to it, it reignited my love of the world again and reminded me of why I loved it so much when I started it, and it got my wheels turning for sure. It inspired, the whole Return came from that experience of me really wanting to get back into the world. And then I came up with the idea of how to do that, without upending what I've done in the original series," Lemire said.
Sweet Tooth season 1 is available to stream on Netflix now.
