Fans were beginning to get worried about The Sandman possibly being cancelled when Netflix took their sweet time about making a renewal announcement, but last November, we got official word that the critically-acclaimed adaptation of Neil Gaiman's beloved DC Comics series will continue.

We haven't heard much about plans for the second season since, but Gaimen has now shared an encouraging update via his Tumblr page.

"Scripts are written. We are casting the first episode we will be shooting. Sets are being designed."

In the season finale, Lucifer appeared to gather her armies in preparation for a war against Morpheus and The Dreaming, but if you've read "Season of Mists," you'll know that the Lord of Hell doesn't seek vengeance in the way you might expect.

Though nothing has been confirmed, season 2 will most likely introduce the other members of Dream's Endless family: Destiny, Delirium, and (possibly) Destruction.

Have you guys watched The Sandman yet? You can check out our review here.

"There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way."

The Sandman stars Tom Sturridge as Morpheus, Kirby Howell Baptiste as Death, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, Donna Preston as Despair, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, Mason Alexander Park as Desire, Charles Dance as black magician Roderick Burgess, and Sanjeeve Bhaskar as Cain. Joely Richardson will play Ethel Cripps, while David Thewlis will take on the role of her son John Dee, aka the deranged Dr. Destiny.

A rather forgettable series

It was a decent adaptation with some really brilliant versions of characters (Thewlis, Howell-Baptiste, etc) but it was far too safe and mid for Sandman. And for that they should be ashamed.

Nice, I enjoyed S01 quite a bit. The budget constraints were a bit severe though, I'd like to see them work on that. The Endless need redesigns, except for Desire, they look way too normal when only Destruction should.
