Currently hitting the ceiling of the charts at the top is The Sandman from the comic series of Neil Gaiman and while many are looking forward to its renewal, it hasn't been officially green lit by Netflix and even when it has a high performance, there is still no guarantee for another season.

On Twitter, a fan asked Neil Gaiman about the pace of watching the series and whether watching it for a longer time would affect in making the series more popular or if it'd be better to watch it all at once. The author responds to the fan what the best method would be to push up the numbers of the series.

Neil Gaiman answered, "It does, yes. Because they are looking at "completion rates". So people watching it at their own pace don't show up."

The numbers on the view may not lie given that The Sandman is currently the biggest show streamed as of the moment but another set of numbers, the budget of the series, may also be a determinant whether it will be renewed or not. Gaiman, himself, said that the show has a massive budget.

Still, The Sandman continues to bring in the hours viewed, even releasing two surprise episodes over the weekend with the animated "A Dream of a Thousand Cats" and the live-action "Calliope." The Sandman series also released a deleted scene from the series.

The Sandman follows the King of Dreams, Morpheus, as he comes out of imprisonment for more than a century and collects his effects to restore his kingdom of Dreaming.

If and when there would be The Sandman Season 2, there's still a lot of material to base on given that there are still a lot of stories uncovered from the original comic book series of Gaiman.
