Warning: This article contains spoilers for The Sanman

After a dreamy first season, Netflix has officially announced that The Sandman is coming back for season two.

Yes, writer Neil Gaiman confirmed today (Thursday, 3 November) that the Lord of Dreams would be returning to screens very soon.

Neil took to Twitter to share the exciting news, sharing this eerie teaser trailer:

Loading…

The author tweeted: "The rumours are true. Netflix is thrilled that so many of you have been watching Sandman, and the thing we were all hoping would happen... has indeed happened..."

Neil later said in a statement that he plans to bring 'even more of The Sandman stories to life' with the help of Netflix, Warner Bros., screenwriter Allan Heinberg, and filmmaker David Goyer.

So, what can fans expect to see from the second season of The Sandman?

Well, when we first left Dream (played by Tom Sturridge) and his friends, Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie) had quite literally unleashed the forces of hell to march against the Dreaming.

Lucifer had, very ominously, threatened to do "something that I have never done before. Something that will make God absolutely livid and bring Morpheus to his knees."

The next instalment of the series is set to explore all of the challenges facing this universe following the century-long absence of Morpheus.

Teasing what might be in store for the next season, Neil Gaiman said: "There are some astonishing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more members of the Endless Family to meet).

"Nobody is going to be happier about this than the Sandman cast and crew: They are the biggest Sandman fans there are.

"And now it’s time to get back to work. There’s a family meal ahead, after all. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell…"

I'm hooked. This season can't come soon enough!

And, in case you were wondering, fans are absolutely losing it over Neil's announcement.

"Thank you so much Neil, I have no words. this means so much to so many people", tweeted one ecstatic fan.

"Excellent news! Congratulations @neilhimself on yet another breathtaking piece of work", wrote another.

And a third raved: "I'm crying, I'm sobbing, the wait is over we have confirmation for The Sandman season 2!"

There's no word yet on when exactly fans can expect The Sandman to return.

But to tide you over, you can stream the first 11 episodes of the show on Netflix now!
