David Goyer, Allan Heinberg, and Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman series may have yet to begin production, but it looks like Netflix is already working on the second batch of episodes for the project.
Sandman author Neil Gaiman just recently spoke in an interview with The Radio Times to update fans about the upcoming live-action adaptation of his graphic novel series, and according to the writer, he and his team have begun developing the second season of the show.
“There are three of us, the showrunner Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and me, and we’ve just finished writing the first episode, and plotting and breaking down the first two seasons, so we’ll see what happens next,” Gaiman told the entertainment news outlet.
This news shouldn’t really come as a surprise. The Sandman adaptation is one of Netflix’s high-profile projects and fans are looking forward to the series’ premiere.
For those who aren’t familiar with the graphic novel, the Sandman comic book series follows the adventures of Dream, a character that rules over the realm of Dreams. Dream takes on the other name Morpheus, making up the Endless together with Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, and Destruction. The series is known for Gaiman’s trademark use of anthropomorphic personification of metaphysical entities and concepts. It blends mythology, history, and horror all in one series.
“A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic--and human--mistakes he's made during his vast existence,” Netflix describes the new series.
Right now there’s no official start date for the production of The Sandman, but we’ll update fans as soon as we get word.
