Following the success of “American Gods,” Neil Gaiman is currently working on a new series, “The Sandman,” which we first reported back in August.
Gaiman has teamed up with David Goyer (Dark Knight trilogy) to produce the new adaptation of his graphic novel series for Netflix. Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman) is serving as a writer and will also serve as showrunner.
Described as “the most expensive TV series that DC Entertainment has ever done,” “The Sandman” is already approved for a second season. During a recent interview with Radio Times Gaiman confirmed the news.
There are three of us, showrunner Heinberg, Goyer, and me, and we’ve just finished writing the first episode, and plotting and breaking down the first two seasons, so we’ll see what happens next.”
The first season will feature eleven episodes, but up till now, we did not know that a second season was already ordered. We’re happy to hear it.
The story centers on Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams. Also featured are The Endless, a powerful family of siblings named Destiny, Death, Despair, Destruction, Desire, and Delirium (aka Dream).
