After months of speculation that the series might have been cancelled, Neil Gaiman’s fantasy drama The Sandman was finally renewed for a second season in November 2022. Now, it has been confirmed that the sophomore season will go on floors in the summer of this year.
Mason Alexander Park, who plays Desire in the series, recently confirmed that the series will begin filming shortly. In a recent fan interaction, the actor said, “There is more Sandman coming in a really cool way, and it can take many forms, so we’re starting shooting in the summer, and we’re gonna tackle the next huge chunk of stories in however long that might take.”
This could also mean that we could not see the second season at least until the beginning of 2024 or maybe even longer than that. He also brought attention to Netflix’s unusual decision to not call it a second season. They said, “Netflix has not gone on record as calling it a Season 2, on purpose. And so, I will, from now on and in the future, and possibly until the end of the universe, not refer to it as Season 2 until we know what it is.”
Neil Gaiman has confirmed that Desire and Delirium will play more prominent roles in the upcoming season.
