The funny thing about this is the fact that the announcement was leaked by DC Comics on their Twitter page. The now-deleted tweet reads:
“The dream continues. [The Sandman] will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to explore even more stories of the Endless.”
The first season of The Sandman ran for 10 episodes and adapts the DC Comics series of the same name. It stars Morpheus played by Tom Sturridge who is captured in a ritual in 1916 and was released decades later. In this season, Morpheus must bring his fallen kingdom back up while also dealing with threats left behind during his incarceration.
The series also stars Boyd Holbrook as Corinthian, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven, David Thewlis as John Dee, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer Morningstar, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, among others.
