This article discusses whether there will be season 2 of the Netflix series The Sandman and its renewed or cancelled status.
It’s been one hell of a journey to get The Sandman onto the screen. Whilst most may already be aware that The Sandman is based on the DC Comic Book series that was originally published between 1989 and 1996, many might not be aware that there were plans to adapt The Sandman into a film way back in 1991. But with creative differences, cast members such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt leaving, and the extended development taking up too much time, it was decided that it would be easier to make a television adaption of The Sandman instead. After Netflix signed a deal to produce The Sandman in 2019, it still took 3 years before the audience would see the end result.
But with all that drama before even one single episode of The Sandman, will it return for a second season?
Will there be a Season 2 of the Netflix series The Sandman – renewed or canceled status
Status: TBA/not official renewed yet
Whilst there hasn’t been an official announcement yet, it seems like the odds are in favor of The Sandman returning sooner rather than later. One of the co-developers of the show, David S. Goyer, has revealed that writing for the second season is already happening! As for Netflix, it’s likely that they will study how the show does on the streaming site. And then they’ll make official decisions on the future of the show.
Whilst it may seem like great news that writing for the second season is already underway, don’t take that news for granted. Many shows continue to write and develop scripts/ideas for potential future seasons. And even then, they have been canceled by Netflix.
But if I had to predict, I’d say that we’ll be getting a second season of The Sandman. The first season alone had a great cast in it, even if some of them only made a short visit, and with the hype/eagerness of the television adaptation, it wouldn’t be wild to believe The Sandman will be renewed.
