Since Netflix announced the coming of The Sandman Season 2, fans have been looking for a new update about the second iteration. Like the viewers, Jenna Coleman, who plays the present-day Johanna Constantine, expresses her excitement, teasing her return.
Netflix and the creator Neil Gaiman confirm that more episodes of the series are coming, which many assume is The Sandman Season 2. Coleman then teased her involvement in the new season in a post on Instagram Thursday, November 3.
Jenna Coleman Hints at Return in The Sandman Season 2
The 36-year-old shared a still taken from the series’ first season, showing her character and Morpheus (Tom Sturridge) looking at each other.
“To come…,” she captioned the snap. “#TheSandman returns.”
She then tagged the show’s official Instagram page, Gaiman himself, Netflix, Warner Bros., and DC Comics.
Though Coleman carefully didn’t give anything away, fans couldn’t help but think that she was hinting at her return. In fact, her followers even started shipping Johanna and Morpheus.
“Manifesting Morphanna kiss this time so badlyyyyy,” one fan said.
“YEEES can’t wait to see Johanna again!! already made her my Netflix icon,” another commented.
What Will be Johanna’s Role in The Sandman Season 2?
In Gaiman’s The Sandman comic book series, Constantine only plays a minor role, but it can’t be denied that she has successfully won over fans after her few episode appearances.
Becoming a fan-favorite may help her character to be a major part of the series and play significant roles.
Though there are no words yet for The Sandman Season 2, the source material suggests that Constantine may become Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie) so that she can take her revenge against Morpheus after he successfully defeats her in the first season.
It’s also possible that Lady Johanna Constantine, the character's 18th-century ancestor played by Coleman, too, will return to show Morpheus’ activities back then.

On Wednesday, November 2, Netflix and Gaiman confirmed that the streaming giant ordered more episodes that would continue to adapt the author’s comic book.
“The rumours are true,” Gaiman wrote in a tweet, accompanied by a short teaser video featuring Morpheus’ mask emerging from the sand. “Netflix is thrilled that so many of you have been watching Sandman, and the thing we were all hoping would happen... has indeed happened...”
Netflix or Gaiman is yet to confirm The Sandman Season 2's release or how many episodes it will have.
