A Reflection on Season One’s Odyssey
“We know what worked and didn’t. We know now coming at it, it was scary coming out at the first time…”
Bringing Neil Gaiman’s iconic graphic novel to life was no small feat for Childs and his team. The trepidation of being the first to adapt a work that others hesitated upon was palpable.

“We’ve now got all that prior knowledge and we’re coming at it again, like a team who’ve done it before.”
However, unforeseen strikes intervened, pausing their fervent pace six weeks into filming.
A Spectrum of Genres Beckons
With Childs at the helm, The Sandman promises a medley of diverse themes. From ancient Greek tragedies to contemporary drama, the next season is set to be a captivating blend.
“We’re doing Greek tragedy, and then we’re doing cyberpunk… It’s honestly it’s such a fun show to work on for that reason.”
