“What power would Hell have if those here imprisoned were not able to dream of Heaven?”
Supernatural fantasy drama: The Sandman has had us on the edge of our seats for a while now. Based on the 1989-1996 comic book, the series has shown great potential. Maybe, that’s why we are so fondly hearing about the buzzing rumours over the internet. To put a rest to those, we like to make it clear The Sandman Season 2 is not coming in April 2023! Now we have put a halt to the wild rumours to dig why The Sandman Season 2 is not coming this month. Before moving forward with the notion, let’s appreciate Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer & Allan Heinberg for creating such a masterpiece. Giving life to the fantasies in a wild way, while giving life tips! It’s an A-graded score from us!
Why is The Sandman Season 2 not coming in April 2023?
While Season 1 broke one record after another the streamer took its sweet time to finally renew it. The renewal for the second season took place in November 2022. Now, seems all things are on track for the series to begin filming another chapter as Gaiman himself gave an update on Tumblr. When one fan inquired about the status of the second chapter, he replied, “Scripts are written. We are casting the first episode we will be shooting. Sets are being designed.” Another important piece of information we received is that casting for the second season is done.

Earlier this year, we got an update about the second part from actor Mason Alexander Park, who played the role of Desire. He confirmed that cameras will begin rolling in the Summer and shared his excitement saying, “We’re gonna tackle the next huge chunk of stories in however long that might take. And I am excited to share what that might be with everybody, eventually.” Since the production and post-production are both time-sucking exercises. We aren’t expecting the second season to release soon which means The Sandman Season 2 is not coming in April 2023.
The show’s future hasn’t officially been called season 2 by Netflix but rather “more episodes”. This is intentional from Netflix and likely reflects an, but we’ll continue referring to it as season 2, as that’s what people are looking for. “Netflix has not gone on record as calling it a season 2 on purpose,” Mason Alexander Park has explained regarding the terminology of the show’s future. “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.”
Ian Markiewicz, one of the VFX supervisors on The Sandman, spoke about season 2, saying, “We have a wonderful framework for what we think season 2 looks like. Allan is still touching up scripts and reworking things, but we have an arc. Up until pretty recently, I think maybe even two weeks or so, Gary, our production designer, myself and Allan meet over lunch, and we will do a script over that meeting. It’s like, “Okay, let’s look at 201,” & we’ll do our breakdowns together, where we do page turns on 201, and we say, “Okay, what do we think? Where can we film this? Can we film this in a real space?
If not, what do we need to build, if we need to build it? Are we building this as a physical set, or can it be a building as a virtual set or a combination thereof? Is it physical to a certain extent, and then digital beyond that?” Just trying to break each one down to be like, “What’s the most value for this, what’s the most sensible way that covers the need for what we need it to be?” That process is happening now, which is great, & it’s really fun and exciting to be able to sort of have season 1 and behind us to know what we feel worked there, things that we wanted to sort of finesse further, and how that impacts our approach for season 2.”
