The sand man has been in development for years, with Netflix picking up the show in 2019 as part of a deal with Warner Bros., owner of DC Entertainment, that was reportedly “massive.” Earlier this year, Netflix announced part of the cast for the series, which also includes Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne and Gwendoline Christie (known for playing Brienne of Tarth in Game Of Thrones and Captain Phasma in Star wars) like Lucifer.
The sand man is just the latest show based on Gaiman’s work. Amazon adapted Good omens for Amazon Prime Video, and the show was successful enough that the company chose to pick it up for a second season. Starz did three seasons of American gods, the latest of which debuted in January.
