The Sandman has to be one of Netflix’s most highly anticipated live-action adaptation series. Many people have been waiting for word on the debut of the Netflix adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s best-selling classic DC comic book series since it was announced in 2019. The premiere date for The Sandman has been teased, with the company announcing that it would be revealed during their Geeked Week event.
The fantasy series will premiere in 2022 and will consist of 11 episodes in the first season. Netflix has revealed what fans can expect from the upcoming event, which will take place from June 6 to June 10, via the Netflix Geeked Twitter account. Netflix disclosed in a Tweet that fans may expect an official announcement during the event, in the form of a meme related to one of their recent movies, on when The Sandman will be released. The image in question featured Winona Ryder’s Joyce Byers from Stranger Things Season 4’s first volume, who peered in disbelief at a note containing The Sandman news.
The Sandman recounts the story of the Endless, a family who symbolizes powerful aspects and concepts of the cosmos like as Death, Desire, and Destiny, and is based on Gaiman’s 1989 series. Dream of the Endless is imprisoned for 105 years due to an occultic ceremony, awakening in modern times before setting out to reclaim his kingdom, The Dreaming. Dream will meet a variety of human, occult detectives, and demons on his trip, in addition to his all-powerful siblings. The Sandman was briefly previewed in a Geeked Week promotional trailer, which featured Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer for the first time.
Tom Sturridge will play the central character, Dream of the Endless. Boyd Holbrook will play The Corinthian, Kirby Baptiste-Howell will play Death, Jenna Coleman will play Johanna Constantine, and Christie will play Lucifer, a role formerly played by Tom Ellis in Lucifer. While the release date will undoubtedly be revealed during Netflix’s Geeked Week, it’s also feasible that new stills of these characters will be released.
