Sandman: filming of season 2 finally resumes

Neil Gaiman announced it in a long letter to fans, written for the anniversary of his comic strip.

More than a year after the broadcast of season 1, the sequel to Sandman struggling to materialize. But this time, it’s there! The creator Neil Gaiman just announced that production on season 2 has resumed.

Filming began this summer, but had to be interrupted last July due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. It has been officially completed since November 9 and the teams of Sandman can go back to work to film the new episodes.

As a bonus, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the first publication of the comic strip Sandman, Neil Gaiman wrote a letter to fans (via Tudum):

“Thirty-five years ago today, the first issue of Sandman went out and put many people and characters on paths that seemed, even at the time, so improbable as to be impossible. At the time, most comic books featured superheroes. Sandman wasn’t that. It didn’t look like anything. But like magic, we had the opportunity to tell the story I had in mind and bring Morpheus and the rest of the Infinite to life. A little over 36 years ago, in October 1987, the worst storm in at least 500 years left my home without power and my family stranded in our small village, blocked by trees. So I spent my time writing the outlines of the first eight issues of Sandman. Thirteen months later, in November 1988, the first issue of Sandman arrived in comic book stores (…) This week, we officially resume production of the next stories for Netflix. Showrunner Allan Heinberg and the countless people in front of and behind the camera are building something infinitely special and bringing these stories to life in ways that would have once been unimaginable. A journey begins that will take us from the Garden of Destiny to Hell, from the Heart of Dreaming to ancient Greece and revolutionary France, and from there to places that even I can’t really imagine on screen… “

This season 2 of Sandman is expected in 2024 on Netflix.
