The Sandman creator says the TV show can be saved in Netflix cancels it
| Last updated
The long-awaited adaptation of The Sandman DC comic series arrived earlier this month on Netflix.
The show already boasts impressive streaming numbers and aired an additional bonus episode.
But given Netflix’s penchant for cancelling popular shows in what feels like the middle of the narrative, fans are preemptively questioning the likelihood of a second season.
They’ve done it many times before, and are still doing so amidst significant losses in subscribers.
One of their most recent cancellations includes First Kill, a vampire-based romance/drama.
Netflix hasn’t given it the green light yet, but creator Neil Gaiman has assured us that the show will live on even if Netflix does decide to cancel it.
When asked on Twitter whether he could still bring The Sandman to other platforms like Prime, Apple TV or Disney+, Gaiman simply responded with 'yes'.
So, in the event that Netflix pulls the plug, we can expect the show to go on.
It wouldn’t be the first time a show based on The Sandman comics changed where it aired.
Lucifer used to air on FOX before it was cancelled in 2018.
It was then brought back for more seasons by Netflix, who continued it until 2021.
