Surprise! Or Not: Season 2 of Sandman on Netflix is Coming [Updated]


Season 2 of Sandman on Netflix is Coming Given how well-received both critics and audiences found the first season, it should come as no surprise that Netflix will continue airing its Neil Gaiman adaption The Sandman.

Deadline broke the story, reporting that “the streamer is bringing back the comic book adaptation after various conflicting reports started to surface online.” Specifically, that’s in reference to Wednesday’s apparently premature tweet from DC Comics (since deleted), which the trade says trumpeted “[The Sandman] will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to explore even more stories of the Endless.”

Netflix hasn’t made any formal statements about this news to date, but io9 will keep you updated on The Sandman’s comeback as soon as we gather more information. Tom Sturridge, Boyd Holbrook, Vivienne Acheampong, Patton Oswalt, David Thewlis, Gwendoline Christie, Jenna Coleman, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and more actors appear in the ten-part fantasy series (plus one extra episode!).

Revision, 8:12 p.m. The Sandman world will continue to grow, according to a press statement from Netflix, which also states that “the classic series will return with even more episodes and stories to be adapted from various Sandman graphic books.” The number of episodes and the specifics of the stories are now “under wraps.”

Additionally, there is a statement from Gaiman that reads, “Millions upon millions of people have embraced and watched and loved The Sandman on Netflix, from experienced Sandman fans to others who were just interested and later got obsessed with the Lord of Dreams, his family, and their antics. It brings me an incredible amount of joy to announce that Allan Heinberg, David Goyer, and I will be bringing even more of The Sandman stories to life in collaboration with Netflix and Warner Bros. 

Morpheus and the others are in store for some incredible tales (not to mention more members of the Endless Family to meet). The Sandman cast and crew, who are the biggest fans of the series, will be the ones to enjoy this the most.
