The Sandman, based on Neil Gaiman’s DC Comics series, was one of Netflix’s top-rated and popular shows in 2022, spending several weeks in the top ten. The epic fantasy series captivated audiences with its intriguing story and fantastic characters, and fans have been eagerly awaiting any news about its return.
And it appears that their wait is finally over.
Mason Alexander Park, who played Desire in the series, recently confirmed at the Fan Expo San Francisco that The Sandman would be returning to Netflix. Although the actor was hesitant to call it “Season 2,” he did reveal that there was more to come in a unique and exciting way.
Fans hoping for a return this month, next month or even this year, may be disappointed to learn the next update on the second season of ‘The Sandman’ on Netflix.
The Sandman season 2 (or whatever it may be finally called) will not be available on Netflix in 2023.
This is due to the fact that the series has not yet begun filming.
So, when will the next season of The Sandman be released?
Filming for the next project will begin in the summer of 2023.
“We’re starting shooting in the summer,” Mason Alexander Park told fans at the Fan Expo San Francisco, “We’re going to tackle the next huge chunk of stories in however long that might take,”.
Given the filming schedule and the amount of post-production required to bring Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy to life, the next episodes of The Sandman are expected to be released in 2024 at the very earliest.
Currently, all 11 episodes of The Sandman are available to stream on Netflix, allowing fans to catch up on the series before the next season. The series is a must-see for fans of epic fantasy and those looking for a unique and visually stunning saga.
The first two volumes of Neil Gaiman’s DC comic series, Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll’s House, were faithfully adapted in Season 1 of the much-acclaimed Netflix series The Sandman.
Fans were surprised to find a bonus episode included after all of the other episodes, covering the first two self-contained stories in Volume 3, Dream Country. “Calliope” and “A Dream of a Thousand Cats” are stories about artistry, imprisonment, and fate.
In a recent interview with Variety, Netflix’s head of UCAN Scripted TV, Peter Friedlander, hinted at a more inventive approach to the next season.
Friedlander stated that “everything is on the table” and that the show is seen as progressive, so the release of episodes could differ from the traditional method.
Guess, we have to wait and see.
