The Sandman Season 2 will feature more of Death and Dream’s other siblings from The Endless

While there hasn’t been an official release date announced yet, The Sandman Season 2 has been in production for what seems like the same amount of time that Morpheus was trapped by the occult ritual in the first episode of season one — that is to say, a very long time.

The silver lining for all this waiting around for The Sandman Season 2 on Netflix? It’s been confirmed that we’ll be seeing more of Death, Dream/Morpheus’ sister and more of his immortal Endless siblings in the follow-up season. In fact, as Death actress Kirby Howell-Baptiste puts it, Death will play a much bigger role in The Sandman Season 2.

“Death is a large part of this season and there are some incredible stories with the family that I’m very, very excited for fans to see,” Howell-Baptiste told Collider. “It’s been fantastic going back actually, because this season, I think fans will be very excited for the episodes. It feels like the show is a two-way street, it’s not just us putting something out, it’s Neil listening, responding to the fans, and then in turn giving them the things that they are asking for, yelling for, begging for. So I think fans are gonna be really excited to have these stories expanded and have the complexities, and the family and, and all of those dynamics, see them even more this season, this continuation of episodes.”

“The Sound of Her Wings,” the sixth episode of The Sandman Season 1, which was an episode centered around Morpheus interacting with his sister Death — as well as an intriguing look at the responsibilities in a typical day in the life of Death — was the highest-rated episode of the first season on IMDB, accruing 9.2 stars out of 10.

The synopsis for The Sandman Season 2, as explained by the IP’s creator and the show’s executive producer Neil Gaiman states, “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.”

The Sandman Season 2 will once again star Tom Sturridge as Dream, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Patton Oswalt as Matthew the Raven, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Mason Alexander Park as Desire, Donna Preston as Despair and more.
