Despite Netflix’s new series The Sandman only just arriving on the streaming service, fans are already awaiting the announcement of a second season.
The first season has been celebrated by viewers and critics alike, so, naturally, everyone wants to know if they'll get more episodes to binge.
Based on the popular DC Comics series of the same name and created by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman follows Morpheus, the King of Dreams, who embarks on a journey to reclaim what was stolen from him and restore his power, after having been mistakenly imprisoned for decades.
The show’s first season, starring Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie and Patton Oswalt, saw the first 16 issues of the series’ original 75-issue run brought to life on screen.
The next instalment of The Sandman graphic novels, titled 'Season of Mists', is largely considered Neil Gaiman's finest work on The Sandman.
This content will likely be explored in a second season if the show gets the green light.
Unfortunately, since the show only just premiered on the streaming platform, The Sandman is yet to receive the go-ahead from Netflix.
Viewers will likely have to wait until September for an official announcement.
However, in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, showrunner Allan Heinberg revealed the work that has already gone into planning a second season.
“Well, we had a writer’s room for 20 weeks to talk about Season Two and to break stories and generate outlines and first drafts,” said Heinberg.
“And now I’m having early talks with production design and VFX and getting everything into position, so that if we are lucky enough to have a Season Two, we’re ready to go, ideally with the same team who made Season One.”
Hopefully this means a second season is more than a dream for fans of the show, with Heinberg telling NME at the show’s London premiere that 'we’ve got as many [seasons] as they’ll let us have'.
