After multiple false starts, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s “The Sandman” is finally a go and has been acquired by streaming giant Netflix, in what is being called a “massive” deal with Warner Bros.



The adaptation comes 30 years after Gaiman’s first comic in the 75 issue collection was published, in which Morpheus wakes up after being in captivity for 70 years.



Gaiman is penning the first episode of the series along with showrunner David S. Goyer, who was also behind the “Good Omens” adaptation.



The Netflix series follows Morpheus as he copes with the world he missed unfold while in captivity. We will also meet Morpheus’ siblings referred to as “The Endless,” which includes Death, Destiny, Desire, Dream, Destruction, Despair, and Delirium.
