Naledi Murray has something to celebrate as the talented young actress has just been promoted to a series regular on Netflix‘s Sweet Tooth.
The almost 13-year-old was a recurring cast member during the first season of the post-apocalyptic hit series. Now, along with co-stars, Neil Sandilands (The Flash) and Marlon Williams (A Star Is Born), we will get to see a lot more of “Wendy”.
If you are not familiar with Sweet Tooth, as mentioned, the series is a post-apocalyptic title that is based on the DC comic book series by Jeff Lemire.
Per Deadline, Sweet Tooth follows the adventures of Gus (Christian Convery) — part deer, part boy — who leaves his home in the forest to find the outside world ravaged by a cataclysmic event. He joins a ragtag family of humans and animal-children hybrids like himself in search of answers about this new world and the mystery behind his hybrid origins.
So, just what can fans expect for Season 2 of the show? Well, per the entertainment news source, seeing more of “Wendy” is just the icing on top of the cake. The new season is more action-packed than the first.
In Season 2, as a deadly new wave of the Sick bears down, Gus (Convery) and a band of fellow hybrids are held prisoner by General Abbot (Sandilands) and the Last Men. Looking to consolidate power by finding a cure, Abbot uses the children as fodder for the experiments of captive Dr. Aditya Singh (Akhtar), who’s racing to save his infected wife Rani (Vellani). To protect his friends, Gus agrees to help Dr. Singh, beginning a dark journey into his origins and his mother Birdie’s (Amy Seimetz) role in the events leading up to The Great Crumble. Outside the Preserve, Tommy Jepperd (Nonso Anozie) and Aimee Eden (Ramirez ) team up to break the hybrids free, a partnership that will be tested as Jepperd’s secrets come to light. As the revelations of the past threaten the possibility of redemption in the present, Gus and his found family find themselves on a collision course with Abbot and the evil forces that look to wipe them out once and for all.
