Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ Getting a Season 2 at Netflix


Netflix has greenlit a second season of Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman.  Deadline reports that the streamer is bringing back the comic book adaptation after various conflicting reports started to surface online.


The Sandman, which launched at the start of August, was watched for 69.5M hours in its first week, doubling this in its second to 127.5M, scoring 77.2M in its third week and getting 53.8M in its fourth. The renewal confirmation follows an accidental leak on Wednesday by DC Comics’ official Twitter page. The since deleted tweet read, “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.”


It came after cancellation rumors started circulating on social media with Gaiman calling out a fake Twitter account.


Netflix declined comment.
