No, you are not dreaming; The Lord of Dreams will return. The Sandman is officially returning, with a new season and stories to be the premiere. Sandman writer Neil Gaiman confirmed the news through Twitter, complete with a brief and evocative trailer featuring Morpheus' Helm of Dreams and plenty of sand.

Who Is There In The New Episodes Of The Sandman

"Millions upon millions of fans have welcomed and watched and loved The Sandman on Netflix, from moving Sandman fans to viewers who were simply curious, and then became preoccupied with the Lord of Dreams, his family and their goings-on," Gaiman said in a statement. "It gives him unbelievable pleasure to say that, working with Netflix and Warner Bros., Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and he will be given even more of The Sandman stories to life."

When we left Dream (Tom Sturridge) and his buddies and foes, the forces of Hell were on the job, led by Lucifer themself (Gwendoline Christie). 

The new series will dive into that conflict and continue to explore the many provocations facing the world in the wake of Morpheus' century-long absence. 

"There are some amazing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more Endless Family members to meet)," Gaiman said. "Nobody is going to be pleased about this than the Sandman cast and crew: They are the true Sandman fans. And now it is time to get return to work. There's a loved ones meal ahead. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell…."  

"I am extremely grateful to Netflix and Warner Bros. to the artists and crew who made our first 11 seasons so magical and to the amazing fans of The Sandman, who advocated tirelessly endlessly on the show's represent and made it possible for us to continue explaining Morpheus' story," showrunner Allan Heinberg tells Tudum.

"And now we get to greet the rest of the unending!" executive producer David S. Goyer adds. "The assistance our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros. have given us has been exceptional. And the fan response made the 10-year expedition worth every ups and downs. Actually, this has been a labor of love."

The Sandman is evolved and executive produced by Gaiman (who created this iteration of the character in his original DC Comics run), Heinberg and Goyer. Alongside Sturridge and Christie, the series stars Boyd Holbrook, Patton Oswalt, Vivienne Acheampong, Charles Dance, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Stephen Fry, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Vanesu Samunyai (formerly known as Kyo Ra), John Cameron Mitchell, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Joely Richardson, Niamh Walsh, Sandra James-Young and Razane Jammal.

What Is The Premiere Date For The Latest Episodes Of The Sandman

There's no word still on when The Sandman will return, but when it does, there will be Hell to pay. You can stream the preferably 11 episodes of the series on Netflix.

The Cast Members 

Like most of Sandman's adaptations of various wannabes, Season 1 adapts "Prelude and Nocturne" and, according to Gaiman, "a little bit more". We plan to directly adopt issue 8, "The Sound of Her Wings," which was introduced in. However, given the comic's penchant for non-linear storytelling, other episodes in the season could include (seemingly) standalone stories of people coming into contact with Morpheus or one of his subjects. An entirely animated episode based on issue #18, "A Dream of A Thousand Cats," would be amazing. We also imagine Gaiman's "a little bit more" will include the introduction of The Corinthian. This wayward and murderous Dream becomes the series' first few antagonists, but only appears once the comic book's second storyline.

In January 2021, Netflix premiered the latest of the cast and their roles

Gwendolyn Christie is Lucifer, Lord of Hell. Vivienne Ashampon is Lucienne, Chief Librarian and Trusted Guardian of the Realm of Dreams. CHARLES DANCE is RODERICK BURGESS, Trickster, Intimidator and Magician. ASIM CHAUDHRY is ABEL, SANJEEV BHASKAR is CAIN, the first victim and predator, the resident and loyal subject of the Kingdom of Dreams.
