‘The Sandman’ gets August 5th Netflix release date and new trailer

‘The Sandman’ follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic–and human–mistakes he’s made.

The much-ancitipated Netflix adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman has finally gotten a release date. Set to release on August 5th, The Sandman also got a brand new trailer.

New info has been scarce for the new show, although Gaiman said at DC FanDome 2020 the show would be taking place in the 2020s. The audiobook starts in 1988 and ends in the early 90s and matches the period of the comics taking place. At the time, Gaiman said that the timeline shift will change everything from the gender of characters to story changes. The big question when they’ve approached scripting the Sandman Netflix show has been, “If we’re doing it now, what would Sandman be?”

The show has been years in the making and it was first announced Netflix would adapt it way back in 2019.

So what’s The Sandman Netflix show about?

A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic–and human–mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
