Netflix's The Sandman Finally Confirmed For Season 2

Season 2 is in the works, but that's all Netflix had to say about it.


Netflix has finally confirmed that The Sandman from Neil Gaiman is returning for a second season. The streamer said in a social media post that "The Sandman will return to Netflix."

Gaiman is quoted in Netflix's announcement, saying, "There are some astonishing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of then... Now it's time to get back to work. There's a family meal ahead... And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell."

In his own tweet, Gaiman said, "The rumors are true. Netflix is thrilled that so many of you have been watching Sandman, and the thing we were all hoping would happen... has indeed happened..."

The Sandman premiered in August and was watched for 69.5 million hours in its first three days. The confirmation of a Season 2 comes not long after a DC Comics tweeted about a new season and then deleted that tweet.

There is no word yet as to when The Sandman Season 2 will premiere or any other details on the sophomore season, but keep checking back with GameSpot for more.

The Sandman stars Tom Sturridge as Morpheus. The show is based on Gaiman's DC Comics series. Gaiman is also known for Coraline, American Gods, and Good Omens, among others.
