The Sandman 10-episode first season premiered on August 5th, and it adapts Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll’s House, the first two volumes of Neil Gaiman’s groundbreaking comic book series. On August 19, 2022, a bonus episode followed the initial season’s release.
The Sandman Season 2 Renewal Status – Renewed or Cancelled
There has been a lot of anxiety amongst fans about whether or not The Sandman will be renewed for a second season or if it will be cancelled. Even though it’s been over six weeks since the show’s premiere, Netflix has remained remarkably silent on the issue.
Fans of the iconic DC Comics series can breathe a sigh of relief, as executive producer Neil Gaiman has not been as reticent as Netflix. Gaiman recently tweeted (link opens in new tab) the reason for The Sandman not being renewed for a second season: you’re not watching it.Since the “data collection” (whatever it is!) had only just concluded, he said, the renewal was “complicated by a lot of people not binge-viewing it, but spreading it out, letting episodes soak in before watching the next.”
According to Gaiman, “Because ‘Sandman’ is a pretty expensive show,” attaining number one in the ratings may not be enough to warrant a second season.
If Neil Gaiman is asked if the show can be brought back somewhere else if Netflix decides to discontinue, he says it can.
The Sandman: Rating & Response
In most respects, The Sandman can be considered a success. Since its release on August 5, the show has consistently ranked among Netflix’s top 10 TV shows worldwide. It has spent its whole run in the top 10 and was number one for the first three weeks. That being said, it appears that viewers are still tuning in, even if they aren’t necessarily bingeing.
Even before it premiered, the comic book version was hailed as a triumph by critics. When it first premiered, it received 85% on Rotten Tomatoes; today, it has a “Certified Fresh” rating after receiving 87%.
When it comes to Netflix, how successful has The Sandman been so far?
The Sandman has 393.14 million hours of global streaming time on Netflix between July 31 and September 18, when it fell out of the top 10 most-watched list.
