Sandman – Netflix: Neil Gaiman talks about the series
After American Gods, and God Omens, another work of Neil Gaimans is ready to become a tv adaptation, according to what has recently been posted by the author himself on Twitter, the first season will adapt the first eight issues of the original, Preludes and Nocturnes, setting the stage for the further events develop in the next season (at the moment not confirmed, but that, if the series were to be successful, not tarderebbe to arrive). In view of the presence of Lucifer in the same streaming service, many people believe that the two characters will be used to build a shared universe, although it remains in the field a number of assumptions (also considering the imminent end of Lucifer with the fifth season).
The first season will be eleven episodes. That's the start of it among Preludes and Nocturnes and a little bit more. https://t.co/tOlfJ1kS1y
