Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman will have a second season, according to Netflix.
The Sandman, which debuted at the beginning of August, received 69.5 million hours of viewing in its first week, 127.5 million in the second, 77.2 million in the third, and 53.8 million in the fourth.
Following an unintentional leak on Wednesday by DC Comics’ official Twitter page, the renewal was officially confirmed. The since deleted tweet read, “The dream continues. [The Sandman] will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to explore even more stories of the Endless.”
Gaiman called out a bogus Twitter account after cancellation rumors started to spread on social media.
The ten-episode series follows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), the embodiment of dreams and one of the seven Endless, when he is captured in an occult ritual in 1916. It is based on Neil Gaiman’s DC Comics series of the same name. Dream (aka Sturridge) escapes captivity after 106 years and embarks on a mission to bring order to his domain, the Dreaming.
Boyd Holbrook, who plays Corinthian, Vivienne Acheampong, who plays Lucienne, Patton Oswalt, who plays Matthew the Raven’s voice, David Thewlis, who plays John Dee, Gwendoline Christie, who plays Lucifer Morningstar, Jenna Coleman, who plays Johanna Constantine, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who plays Death, are some of the other stars of the series.
