Sandman Season 2

Filming for the next batch of episodes, which may be released as volumes rather than seasons (more on that later), has started in the United Kingdom.

Filming was delayed due to SAG-AFTRA and the Writers Guild of America strikes, but with those now resolved there shouldn’t be further delays. This means you can expect more Dream, Death, and Lucifer on your TV screen in the not-too-distant future.

The Sandman season 2: Potential release dates

Regretfully, the announcement that Netflix had given The Sandman a second season renewal did not come with a release date. However, we can estimate a rough time for your return to The Dreaming.
The Sandman’s future release date has still not been confirmed by Netflix.

The president of Netflix’s scripted TV for the United States and Canada, Peter Friedlander, stated in an interview with Variety that the streaming service is still thinking about how to group the episodes. Regarding “Sandman,” everything is on the table. It’s a creative programme. Thus, don’t be shocked if next episodes of The Sandman deviate from the conventional pattern of binge-watching an entire season.

In a recent interview at Fan Expo San Francisco, actor Mason Alexander Park stated that Netflix is absolutely not calling the upcoming set of episodes “Season 2.” This strengthens the increasing hypothesis that Netflix will eventually switch to a five- to six-episode “Volume” kind of release schedule.

It appears that a Redanian Intelligence report supports this theory. According to this alleged rumour, Netflix is planning to shoot two blocks of episodes: one from January 2024 to April 2024 and the other from June 2023 to October 2023. Given that it would be exactly two years later, we had been anticipating August 2024 as Netflix’s scheduled release date. This would logically allow Netflix enough time to have a batch of episodes ready for that month.

But once that report was released, the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA went on strike, which put a stop to things. However, both strikes have ended, and production was scheduled to start up again on November 27, 2023, as creator Neil Gaiman has subsequently verified.

Additionally, Park has verified that filming has started by sharing images from what appears to be the Quantum Leap set on Instagram (via Nerdbot), where they are starring in another show. Even further, Netflix confirmed the confirmation in a tweet (X) that featured a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Sandman set. Filming in Essex and Brighton has also been covered by English tabloids such as The Argus.
