Anything is possible, even in the waking life. Fantasy drama television series The Sandman, based on the popular '80s comic book of English author Neil Gaiman, has been renewed for a second season.
"The Dream continues," streaming giant Netflix announced in a video teaser on Facebook on Nov. 3, Manila time. "The Sandman returns to explore more stories of the Endless."
Gaiman also confirmed the news on his social media pages.
"The rumours are true. (Well, the good ones, anyway)," said Gaiman, who's also the series executive producer and co-writer of the pilot episode. "Netflix is thrilled that so many of you have been watching Sandman, and the thing we were all hoping would happen... has happened..."
As cherry on top, Gaiman also shared that Netflix will be adding The Sandman characters as profile icons in the platform.
Details about The Sandman's second season have yet to be announced, including plot and episode count.
The first season revolves around Morpheus/Dream, the personification of dreams and a member of the (dysfunctional) Endless family, whose other members are Destiny, Death, Destruction, Desire, Despair and Delirium (formerly Delight).
After being imprisoned for over a century through an occult ritual, Morpheus escapes and embarks on a journey across worlds to find what was stolen from him and restore his power.
The Sandman premiered on Aug. 5, with a surprise additional episode coming up on Aug. 19. It got positive reviews from critics, particularly for its casting, production design, costumes, visual effects, and faithfulness to the source material.
