‘The Sandman’ Awakens For More Episodes On Netflix

No, you’re not dreaming — The Lord of Dreams will return. The Sandman is officially coming back, with new episodes and stories to be adapted. The news was confirmed by Sandman writer Neil Gaiman in a tweet, complete with a brief and evocative teaser featuring Morpheus’ Helm of Dreams and, obviously, plenty of sand.

“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,” Gaiman said in a statement. “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.”

What is the plot of the new episodes of The Sandman?

When last we left Dream (Tom Sturridge) and his friends and foes, the forces of hell were on the move, led by Lucifer themself (Gwendoline Christie). 

The new episodes of the series will dive into that conflict and continue to explore the many challenges facing the universe in the wake of Morpheus’ century-long absence. 

“There are some astonishing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more members of the Endless Family to meet),” Gaiman continued. “Nobody is going to be happier about this than the Sandman cast and crew: They are the biggest Sandman fans there are. And now it’s time to get back to work. There’s a family meal ahead, after all. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell…”  

“I’m profoundly grateful to Netflix and to Warner Bros. — to the artists and crew who made our first 11 episodes so magical — and to the extraordinary fans of The Sandman, who advocated tirelessly — endlessly — on the show’s behalf and made it possible for us to continue telling Morpheus’ story,” showrunner Allan Heinberg tells Tudum.

“And now we get to meet the rest of the Endless!” executive producer David S. Goyer adds. “The support our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros. have given us has been phenomenal. And the fan response made the 10-year journey worth every obstacle. Truly, this has been a labor of love.”

What is the release date for the new episodes of The Sandman?
