You’ve probably seen the trailer for The Sandman Season 1 on Netflix and wondered what it’s all about. Well, we have you covered! We know all there is to know about this original drama and Netflix release. It’s not like anything else out there. The series will be airing in 2021 on Netflix as a 10-episode season – so keep your eyes peeled!
The filming of the series just ended in August 2021. We are all excited but it will still be a while before we get to see the final product.
Although you can read up on all of this yourself – keep in mind, some details may change along the way! So here’s everything there is to know about The Sandman so far:
The Sandman Television Series doesn’t have a Release Date Yet
We do not have a confirmed date as of yet, but we do know that the series will be releasing this year. You can even watch a trailer for the upcoming series! This marks the first time someone has turned this comic book into an actual series since it was written.
The comic book has struggled a lot for the release. The theme of the series has been adapted from the book series by the same name, written by Neil Gaiman.
The television series will be released on Netflix. The comic book was originally written 27 years ago.
The Plot of the Sandman will have Original Content from Comic
The television series will be following the same storyline as that of the comic book. The series will have live action portrayed throughout the show. The show will also have its own original content, which will be based on the storyline of The Sandman.
It has been confirmed that the show will be based on the graphic novels by Neil. These books are titled Preludes & Nocturnes and The Doll’s House. These two books are the first parts of The Sandman comic book series.
The leading character for the upcoming series will be Dream. He is one of the seven Endless beings whose existence predates the gods. David S. Goyer has been along with Neil to write the episodes of the Sandman.
The dream will have his exploits in search of his symbols. Namely, power, his ruby, his helm, and his pouch of sand.
Stars for the Upcoming Series the The Sandman Season 1
We have few names for the stars who will play roles in The Sandman. We will be having Tom Sturridge’s role in The Sandman. Tom has had a very successful career till now.
The Sandman will be having additional roles played by famous actors. This includes Gwendoline Christie to play Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, and Charles Dance as Roderick Burgress. Others on the list of the cast of the Sandman are Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, and Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain.
Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Niamh Walsh, and Joely Richardson as younger and older versions of Ethel Cripps have also been enlisted for The Sandman.
The cast of the Netflix version is said to be a mix of famous and upcoming actors that will work together in bringing Gaiman’s original comic book characters alive on screen for us all to enjoy.
We will also have David Thewlis as John Dee, Kyo Ra as Rose Walker, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, Razane Jammal as Lyta Hall, Sandra James Young as Unity Kincaid, and Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven.
The Sandman Season 1 Might have an Early Release
Though, it is very unclear whether The Sandman will be released in 2021 or 2022. Netflix is already giving fans a lot of good news, though!
The last update on the release date was that it would come out sometime this year. But there are rumors floating around saying next year instead. We do know for sure though that Neil Gaiman has been working with his team to launch the series.
We hope that the series releases this year or in early 2022.
