‘The Sandman’ Receives Greenlight for Season 2


Let’s face it: we’ve all been waiting around for an official announcement for season 2 of The Sandman, like Hob Gadling waited for Morpheus in 1989. Thankfully, Netflix and DC aren’t making us wait any longer and have given into our desires.

Today, the streamer has officially confirmed that the series will receive a second season on the platform.

The Sandman was first published in 1988 by DC Comics and written by then-up-and-coming visionary author Neil Gaiman as a reinvention of the obscure character, Morpheus, the King of Dreams. Gaiman says he was first offered to turn the story into a film in 1991, but it has taken three decades for the screen rights to come to fruition … and the series is thankfully well worth the wait.

There are plenty of stories from the graphic novels that have yet to be told that season 2 is sure to pull from and reinvent, but the possibilities don’t end there. Creator Gaiman has recently teased that there are possible stories to be told that he’s still dreaming up — including a potential return for Boyd Holbrook’s Corinthian in the future in a recent Twitter Q&A.

Our spoiler-free review for season 1 of The Sandman can be read here. If you were too busy passing the time in the Dreaming and you missed the news, Netflix also released a surprise two-part eleventh episode for season 1, which is available to stream now and features stellar guest appearances.
