The Sandman season 2 may be released in parts, similar to how Stranger Things season 4 was released, rather than through Netflix’s conventional binge format.

All ten episodes of season 1 of The Sandman were released in early August, and two weeks later, a bonus episode was also made available. 

Both the ratings and reviews for the show’s premiere were favourable.  

The second season of The Sandman was officially revealed by Netflix in November 2022, several months after the first one’s release. 

In line with Stranger Things season 4, Variety says that Netflix is thinking about releasing The Sandman season 2 in instalments.  

According to Peter Friedlander, the head of Netflix’s U.S. and Canadian scripted series, “Everything is on the table when it comes to ‘Sandman.” 

The Sandman received a renewal in November, and Gaiman personally advocated for the renewal.  

The Sandman showrunner Allan Heinberg stated in an interview that preparations for the following season appeared to have begun much earlier.  

For twenty weeks, he claimed, they met in a writer’s room to discuss and compose the initial draughts of The Sandman season 2.

Only two of The Sandman’s twelve softcover volumes were featured in season 1.
