Here's what we know so far about Netflix's The Sandman

The Sandman cast includes names suchs as Gwendoline Christie, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, David Thewlis, Jenna Coleman, Stephen Fry, Patton Oswalt, Joely Richardson, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste. Plus, Mark Hamill joins as the voice of crowd-fave Merv Pumpkinhead.

It will have a total of 10 episodes, according to Deadline, tracing Morpheus' journey of correcting all of the wrongs he's done in existence. A very hard task for someone who's lived as long as he has. The OG Neil Gaiman serves as Executive Producer and, breathe easy, co-writer. Allan Heinberg is the showrunner. Wondering where Tim Burton is? Same. But it looks like he's busy elsewhere on Netflix with a series all about Wednesday Addams, dropping sometime in late 2022.
