ICYMI: Everything You Must Know About "The Sandman", DC's Upcoming Series on Netflix
Netflix's The Sandman was undoubtedly among the most anticipated projects of 2022. Based on a highly applauded and influential comic book series written by Neil Gaiman, the series premiered on August 5. Despite critical acclaim and positive reception upon release, renewal for The Sandman was not swift. However, Netflix has now confirmed that the show has been renewed for a second season.
This news comes after a long wait that left fans on pins and needles particularly because the show was an immediate critical darling and fan favorite thanks to its rich storylines, complex characters, and affectionate faithfulness to its source material. As a result, it is largely considered one of the best comics-to-TV adaptations made.
The Sandman series follows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), the personification of dreams and ruler of The Dreaming realm, who escapes a century-long captivity and sets out to reclaim stolen personal artifacts and restore his realm, which had deteriorated in his absence, to its former glory.
