Netflix’s hit series The Sandman is still deep in production after filming restarted late last year. Everyone is eagerly awaiting to find out what parts of the comics the new season will adapt and how many episodes will we see. Today we finally have some real answers.

Firstly, the episode count. The Sandman Season 2 is set to have 12 episodes, and Netflix may release them as two volumes, with six episodes each. The news comes via a profile update on Independent Talent for director Jamie Childs, who will serve as executive producer for the new season.

Netflix has yet to confirm this, but in recent years, the streamer has released anticipated seasons of TV series in two volumes. Stranger Things received the two-volume treatment, for example.

Then, we have the titles for six episodes of The Sandman Season 2. For those who know the comics, these reveal a good amount of information regarding where the second season is headed.

Here are the episode titles for the second season of The Sandman. We have only six of them so far, and with 12 in total, we think these could be Vol 1.

In no particular order:

  • The Song of Orpheus, named after the special issue of the same name. Needless to say, this one will focus on Ruairi O’Connor’s Orpheus
  • More Devils Than Vast Hell Can Hold, referencing the issue A Midsummer Night’s Dream
  • Brief Lives, named after the issue of the same name
  • Family Blood, likely referencing “spilling family blood”, something Dream seeks to avoid
  • The Ruler of Hell, referencing Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer. Or perhaps Hell will have a new ruler? We won’t spoil.
  • Season of Mists, named after the comic collection of the same name. Previously mentioned Odin, Thor and Loki are most likely to appear in this episode.

The second season of The Sandman still has no official release date, but we’re not expecting a return in 2024. Indeed, it was left out of Netflix’s 2024 slate reveal in February, and 2025 seems to be the most realistic release schedule. Despite that, we’ve already had many casting reveals for season 2 so far, with more to come (more this week, in fact!), and filming is expected to wrap by August 31st, 2024.

Most recently, Wil Coban, Gavin Spokes, Kayode Akinyemi, and Daniel Hoffmann-Gill were discovered to have joined the cast, among five others. Others to feature in the new season include Indya Moore, Ruairi O’Connor, Amber Rose Revah, Charlotte Bate, Daphne Alexander, and others.
