If I save seeds from sweet million cherry tomatoes will I get more sweet million tomatoes?

The seeds say they are hybrid seeds.

    are they pollinated from ONLY that type of plant, or are they getting cross pollinated with other species? – black thumb Feb 25 '17 at 13:40

    You can find stabilized versions of it that breed true, but in all likelihood, they'll say they're open-pollinated and not say hybrid (and definitely won't say F1 hybrid). – Shule Feb 26 '17 at 4:32

Sweet Million are an F1 variety, so will not come true. Seeds saved from their first year may grow what are known as F2 types, which may be quite close to the original F1 Sweet Million, but any seed saved from the second year will produce random tomatoes.
