There’s no end to The Dreaming on Netflix: The Sandman has been renewed for what the streamer describes as “more episodes and stories to adjust
from several graphic novels.”
Netflix explicitly does not refer to this as a second season.
“Millions and millions of people have welcomed it, seen it and loved it The Sandman on Netflix, established by sandman Fans to people who were just curious and then became obsessed with the Lord of Dreams, his family and their goings-on,” creator Neil Gaiman said in a statement. “I’m incredibly excited to say that Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and I will be bringing more stories from The Sandman to life by collaborating with Netflix and Warner Bros. There are some amazing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more members of the Endless Family to meet). Nobody will be happier than the Sandman cast and crew: they are the greatest sandman there are fans. And now it’s time to get back to work. After all, a family dinner is coming up. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell…”
The series follows Morpheus (played by Tom Sturridge), the lord of a mystical realm called The Dreaming, who is the keeper of all of mankind’s dreams (and nightmares). He and his siblings – Death, Desire, Despair, etc. – are collectively known as The Endless: embodiments of the concepts they represent. The cast includes Gwendoline Christie, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Boyd Holbrook, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Steven Fry and Vanesu Samunyai.
In August, Gaiman warned fans that despite positive reviews and high viewership The Sandman‘s renewal was anything but assured. The series “is a really expensive show,” he wrote. “And for Netflix to release the money for us to earn [a second season] we have to do an incredible job.”
In addition to its original 10-episode run (read a synopsis of the finale here), The Sandman released a two-part live-action/animated 11th episode last summer entitled A Dream of a Thousand Cats/Calliope.
