Netflix’s fantasy drama series ‘The Sandman’ will be returning for a second season, the streaming network has announced.
‘Sandman’ writer Neil Gaiman confirmed the news on Twitter as well:
Gaiman said in an official statement: “Millions upon millions of people have welcomed and watched and loved The Sandman on Netflix, from established Sandman fans to people who were simply curious, and then became obsessed with the Lord of Dreams, his family and their goings-on.
“It gives me unbelievable pleasure to say that, working with Netflix and Warner Bros., Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and I will be bringing even more of The Sandman stories to life.”
The series stars Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Boyd Holbrook, Patton Oswalt, Vivienne Acheampong, Charles Dance, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Stephen Fry, among more.
Season 1 ended with the forces of hell rising, led by Lucifer (Christie). The new episodes continue exploring the challenges of the universe due to Morpheus’ (Sturridge) century-long absence.
No exact release date for the new season has been announced yet.
