Netflix has confirmed that its adaptation of The Sandman has been commissioned for a second season.
The dark fantasy drama series is based on Neil Gaiman’s beloved, award-winning DC Comics series.
It follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he corrects the mistakes he made throughout his vast existence.
Fans had been clamoring for a second season of the fantasy show since its conclusion earlier this year.
Gaiman confirmed the news on Wednesday, saying: “The rumors are true. Well, the good guys are anyway.
“Netflix is delighted and thrilled that so many of you around the world have been watching and loving Sandman, which means what we all hoped would happen…?
He added: “Some amazing stories await Morpheus and the others…
“Now it’s time to get back to work.

The Sandman stars Tom Sturridge as Dream, as well as Gwendoline Christie, who plays Lucifer Morningstar, Lord of Hell, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Lourdes Faberes and Joely Richardson.
