The Endless have assembled!

Netflix has shared a brief teaser for the second season of The Sandman, reintroducing the members of The Endless we met during season 1, Dream, Death, Desire and Despair, while providing our first glimpse of Morpheus' remaining siblings, Destiny, Delirium, and "The Prodigal."

Esmé Creed-Miles will play the youngest of the Endless, Delirium, while Adrian Lester will take on the role of the all-seeing Destiny, and Barry Sloane will play The Prodigal.

Anyone who has read Neil Gaiman's comic series will know who this really is, and while it wouldn't seem like much of a spoiler to reveal the name, it's clearly something the show is choosing to keep under wraps for the time being.

We still don't have a return date for The Sandman, but WhatsOnNetflix did recently reveal the titles of the first six (of what is believed to be 12 in total) episodes.

The Song of Orpheus

More Devils Than Vast Hell Can Hold

Brief Lives

Family Blood

The Ruler of Hell

Season of Mists

If you've read the comic, these titles will make a lot more sense, but if this is indeed just the first of two volumes, it seems clear that season 2 will fully adapt both the "Brief Lives" and "Season of Mists" arcs, before possibly even moving on to "The Kindly Ones."

Gaiman shared the following message to fans when the series officially resumed filming.

"We never know where our dreams will take us. Thirty-five years ago today, the first issue of The Sandman was released and set many people and characters on paths that seemed, even at the time, so unlikely as to be impossible. Back then most comics featured superheroes. Sandman wasn’t that. It wasn’t like anything else, but magically (the magic consisting of hard work, youthful overconfidence, and some key people who believed in the vision) we were given the opportunity to tell the story I had in my head and bring Morpheus and the rest of the Endless to life.

A little over 36 years ago, in October 1987, the worst storm in at least 500 years left my house without power and my family trapped in our little village by fallen trees, and I spent my time writing an outline for the first eight issues of Sandman.

Thirteen months later, in November 1988, the first issue of Sandman hit the comics shops. Like those who walk a path in Destiny’s garden, I look back and see one clear path stretching behind me. At times on this journey the way forward seemed impossible, and I don’t think I could have conceived of the impact that these characters would have on individuals or on the world. When I look at the path ahead, though, I don’t see darkness. I see how the world of The Sandman continues to grow and evolve and take new forms.

This week we officially restart production on the next sequence of stories of The Sandman for Netflix. Genius showrunner Allan Heinberg and the countless people in front of and behind the camera are building something endlessly special, and bringing these stories to life in a way that would once have been unimaginable.

A journey is beginning that will take us from Destiny’s garden to Hell, from the Heart of the Dreaming to Ancient Greece and revolutionary France, and from there to places even I cannot quite imagine on the screen. I will be patient. Good things are coming."

Have you 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 Dream, 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 plays Ethel Cripps, while David Thewlis takes on the role of her son John Dee, aka the deranged Dr. Destiny.

I love how involved Gaiman is in the show. Easily one of my favorite authors
marvel72 - 5/20/2024, 10:38 AM
I'll stick with my three volume Omnibusus, which are better than the show.

Not a fan of the casting but one positive change that netflix did do for the show was to add clothes onto Despair to save use from that visual horror.

@harryba11zack - They [frick]ing pussies and so are we.
TheVisionary25 - 5/20/2024, 10:46 AM
Cool , looking forward to it!!.

I liked S1 so intrigued to see how the story continues as someone who is a noob to this world…

I hope we do see Corinthian again because he was a good villain imo!!.

@TheVisionary25 - He plays a big role in the Kindly Ones, but I don't think he's much involved in the material being adapted this season.
TheVisionary25 - 5/20/2024, 12:05 PM
@clintthahamster - oh ok thanks

Well hopefully in the future then since I thought Holbrook did well in the role!!.

Why is Desire equally as revolting to look at as Despair? honestly, who the hell would "desire" that?

I get the weirdest vibe from this show. It just does not appeal to me in the slightest. Is it one of those things where I have to push through the first couple episodes and then it will be alright?
braunermegda - 5/20/2024, 11:35 AM
@SummersEssex - nope, because its exactly like the comics. If you don't like the comics you probably won't like the show.
clintthahamster - 5/20/2024, 11:59 AM
@braunermegda @SummersEssex - Adding another perspective . . . I loved the comics, but did not dig the vibe of the show for the first couple of episodes. But by ep. 3, I was fully in the swing of the rhythm of the show, and I loved every minute of it.
ObserverIO - 5/20/2024, 3:04 PM
@SummersEssex - As a Sandman fan I find the show very underwhelming. But those first two episodes are actually pretty wonky so maybe watch one or two more and you might get into it. If you watch only one episode watch The Sound of Her Wings (I think it's episode 6).

i dont like desires costume. i know its from the comics, but this is one they should redesign
also i wished death had her eye tattoo
braunermegda - 5/20/2024, 11:36 AM
@Superheromoviefan - she'll have for season of mist
SteelGunZ - 5/20/2024, 12:44 PM
looking forward to this, can't wait!
AnthonyVonGeek - 5/20/2024, 2:09 PM
That looked like a 90s music video. 🤷‍♂️🤣

This show really needs better production design.

Everything is so muted and dull, it's like Inhumans all over again.

Can't believe they made Delirium look like any normal person you would pass in the street. It's fine for Death, that's her look, low-key goth, and it's fine for Destiny, dude in a cloak, but everyone else looks so darn dull compared to their comic book counterparts.

It's like cosplay, but not good cosplay, like the kind of piss poor cosplay you get in areas that just don't really give a [frick].

And the directorial vision is equally dead.

@ObserverIO - They completely abandoned the whole gothic ecstatic from the books. This should have looked like a series made by Tim Burton in his early years. Now it just looks like any other generic CW type show.
ObserverIO - 5/20/2024, 3:24 PM
@HashTagSwagg - They even had Tim Burton and Guillermo Del Toro working on other shows on Netflix. They couldn't have got them in for a guest spot? smh...
ObserverIO - 5/20/2024, 3:12 PM
Also I just realized what they meant by "The Prodigal". Another redhead bites the dust.

The only correct and sane answer to who should play "The Prodigal" would have been Kristofer Hivju.
