Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman will get a second season, according to Netflix.
It is aware that the streamer has decided to resurrect the comic book adaptation after a number of contradictory rumors started to circulate online.
The Sandman, which debuted at the beginning of August, had 69.5 million hours of viewing in its first week, 127.5 million in the second, 77.2 million in the third, and 53.8 million in the fourth.
Following an unintentional leak on Wednesday via DC Comics’ official Twitter page, the renewal was officially confirmed.
The dream continues, stated the since-deleted tweet. It also hinted that to explore even more tales of the Endless, The Sandman will return with fresh episodes based on various volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic book.
Gaiman called out a bogus Twitter account after cancellation rumors started to spread on social media.
The ten-episode series follows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), the embodiment of dreams and one of the seven Endless, when he is kidnapped in an occult ceremony in 1916. It is based on Neil Gaiman’s DC Comics series of the same name. Dream (aka Sturridge) escapes captivity after 106 years and embarks on a mission to bring order to his domain, the Dreaming.
Along with David S. Goyer and Neil Gaiman, Allan Heinberg serves as an executive producer. As co-writers on the project, Gaiman, Goyer, and Heinberg are all involved.
Netflix opted not to comment.
