Netflix debuted a video of the upcoming series based on Neil Gaiman’s DC comic book series the sandman. The video was short, but it gave us a good view of actor Tom Sturridge as Dream.
The video was shown during Netflix’s Tudum event that took place on Saturday. The show also featured Gaiman, Sturridge and Kirby Howell-Baptiste (who plays Death) on the series.

the sandman has been in development for years, with Netflix picking up the show in 2019 in a deal with Warner Bros., which owns DC Entertainment, which was reportedly “enormous.” Earlier this year, Netflix announced: some of the cast for the show, including Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne and Gwendoline Christie (known for playing Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones and Captain Phasma in Star Wars) as Lucifer.
the sandman is just the latest show based on Gaiman’s work. Amazon adjusted Good omens for Amazon Prime Video, and the show was so successful that the company chose to pick it up for a second season. Starz made three seasons of american gods, the latest of which debuted in January.
