The Sandman renewed at Netflix


Despite conflicting reports and deleted tweets, it looks like Netflix has renewed Sandman for another installment.

According Deadline, Netflix has renewed The Sandman, ensuring that Neil Gaiman’s DC comic book will continue with more stories. The renewal was accidentally leaked by DC’s official Twitter account before it was taken down.

The now-deleted tweet jumped on the gun, it appears to read: “The dream continues. @Netflix_Sandman will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel to explore even more infinity stories.”

Later, Netflix officially confirmed the renewal with a quote from Gaimain which reads, “It gives me incredible pleasure to say that working with Netflix and Warner Bros., Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and I will bring even more of stories from The Sandman”. There are amazing stories awaiting Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more endless family members to meet). No one is going to be happier about that than the cast and crew of Sandman: they’re the biggest Sandman fans out there. And now it’s time to get back to work. After all, there is a family meal waiting for us. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to hell…”

The Sandman premiered on August 5, 2022, and has been praised for faithfully adapting the beloved Neil Gaiman comic book series after Dream, a divine personification who rules over people’s dreams in a realm called the Dreaming.

The cast includes Tom Sturridge in Dream as well as Boyd Holbrook, David Thewlis, Jenna Coleman, Gwendoline Christie, and more.

The first season consisted of ten episodes, based on stories straight from the comics. A special two-part eleventh episode was released two weeks after the premiere of the first season.

In our review, IGN gave The Sandman a 9, calling it an adaptation fans “could only conjure up in their deepest sleep.”
