New screenplays for The Sandman episodes have received an update from Neil Gaiman. The Sandman, a television series created specifically for Netflix based on the same-named comic book series authored by Gaiman, debuted in August.

Information about the new episodes of The Sandman
Gaiman and the actors of The Sandman have both hinted at potential future stories, even if the premise of upcoming episodes hasn’t been revealed yet because the scripts are still being produced. Delirium, the newest Endless member, will be a part of the series, and Gaiman has expressed his delight about casting the part on several occasions. The much-loved characters of Boyd Holbrook (The Corinthian) and Jenna Coleman (Johanna Constantine) have both hinted at potential comebacks. Coleman even hinted that Constantine may eventually have her own Sandman spinoff series, a notion that Gaiman has shown to be amenable to, though none of their, nor Netflix’s, official intentions have been confirmed.
Additionally, it was recently hinted that this upcoming installment of The Sandman would be divided into two parts, similar to how Stranger Things season 4 was. The concept of the program is also “on the table” when it comes to “Sandman,” according to Netflix’s head of U.S. and Canadian scripted series, Peter Friedlander. Additionally, Netflix has said that the renewed episodes would not be regarded as the second season of the program.

The scripts for the new episodes have not yet been written, so it may still be some time before they are released. It is presently rumored that production for the new episodes will start in early 2023. The popularity of the series is often credited to Neil Gaiman’s ongoing involvement, and now that the author has revealed that he has a significant role in crafting the screenplays for the upcoming episodes, this new chapter will undoubtedly extend The Sandman’s reign on Netflix.
