Meet the new faces of the Endless in the next season of THE SANDMAN

After years in development, Neil Gaiman’s beloved comic book finally aired as a Netflix television series in 2022. The Sandman stars Sturridge as Dream, aka the titular Sandman, “the powerful cosmic being who controls all our dreams.” After being captured and held prisoner for over a century, Dream must “journey across different worlds and timelines to fix the chaos his absence has caused.”

The Sandman was developed and executive produced by Gaiman, David S. Goyer, and Allan Heinberg. The first 10 episodes premiered on August 5, 2022, with an 11th episode arriving weeks later on August 19. In November 2022, Netflix renewed The Sandman for a second season. Dead Boy Detectives, another Netflix show based on a comic series from Gaiman, premiered on April 25, 2024. Dead Boy Detectives is set in the same universe as The Sandman.

There is no release date for The Sandman season 2.
