The rumors have been officially confirmed, Neil Gaiman's The Sandman comic book series will be adapted as a live-action TV series heading to Netflix!
The award-winning fantasy comic book series started under DC in 1988 and is well-loved since then by its mature readers. Here's Netflix's logline for the upcoming show:
"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."
The TV series heading to the streaming giant will be produced by Warner Bros. Television together with Gaiman (Coraline, Good Omens), Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman, Grey's Anatomy) and David S. Goyer (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Krypton, Foundation).
“We’re thrilled to partner with the brilliant team that is Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg to finally bring Neil’s iconic comic book series, The Sandman, to life onscreen,” said Channing Dungey, VP, Original Series, Netflix. “From its rich characters and storylines to its intricately built-out worlds, we’re excited to create an epic original series that dives deep into this multi-layered universe beloved by fans around the world.”
