After dominating the charts for months, Netflix’s popular dark fantasy series The Sandman has been officially renewed for Season 2.
Fans around the world were left wondering about the fate of Morpheus and the Endless after Season 1 ended. With Netflix’s habit of suddenly canceling shows (even popular ones), it’s no wonder everyone was worried. Thankfully, our worst fears have been abated as the show is coming back for another season.
Netflix released an announcement on its Facebook page with the caption “The Dream continues. The Sandman returns to explore more stories of the Endless.”
There are no details yet about Season 2, save for the fact that it will be based on multiple volumes of Neil Gaiman’s graphic novels to explore more stories of the Endless. So its premiere date and the number of episodes are still unknown. But no matter. More information will undoubtedly come out soon.
The Sandman is a character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy series based on the beloved award-winning DC comics written by Neil Gaiman. The show is developed and executive produced by Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer, and produced by Warner Bros. Television.
The series stars Tom Sturridge (Dream), alongside Boyd Holbrook (The Corinthian), Patton Oswalt (Matthew the Raven), Vivienne Acheampong (Lucienne), Mason Alexander Park (Desire), Gwendoline Christie (Lucifer), and more.
At the time of writing, The Sandman Season 1 received a critics score of 87% and an average audience score of 80% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 7.7/10 on IMDB.
