Neil Gaiman shares update on the status of Season 2 of The Sandman

At this point, all we can do is hope that the WGA strike ends soon enough, so we can see some more Morpheus action.

The WGA strike has only been in effect for a week, and its impact is already apparent.

While some productions were fortunate enough to have completed scripts before the strike, most shows have ground to a halt, and there's no telling how long this will persist. Neil Gaiman, the creator of The Sandman, has noted that his show shares a similar fate.

On Gaiman's Tumblr page, a curious fan of the show inquired about the impact of the strike on the show's second season:

Sorry for the participating in the endless barrage of strike questions, but is it safe to assume that season 2 of sandman will be delayed until well after the strike is finished? i don't mind waiting for as long as it takes (i've been a fan since the 90s, a few more years is nothing). but i'd really hate to see netflix forge ahead with with scab scripts just to keep the numbers up.

In response, Gaiman stated:

Whether or not any of Sandman is delayed depends on how long the strike goes.

And there won’t be scab scripts on Sandman.

So, there you have it, folks! Unless the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers meets the WGA's demands, we'll have to settle for rewatching the first season of The Sandman.

Gaiman, being a Guild member, is prohibited from submitting any scripts to Netflix, as that would label him as a scab.

In November of last year, The Sandman was renewed for a second season.

In case you're not familiar with the term, a scab is a WGA member who continues to work during a strike. Those who will be participating in scabbing could face severe consequences, such as expulsion from the guild or being blacklisted in the industry.

Non-Guild writers who work during a WGA strike are not technically labeled as scabs. However, if they try to sell a script or make a deal with a signatory company or producer, they would be violating WGA regulations. Besides, selling a scab script carries little benefit for a writer since it could jeopardize their chances of becoming a Guild member in the future.

The hit Netflix series' season finale saw Morpheus reclaiming control of the Dreaming and putting a stop to the rogue nightmare, The Corinthian. Following his defeat at Morpheus' hands, Lucifer is scolded by the Dukes of Hell and contemplates seeking vengeance.

Neil Gaiman confirmed that Season 2 will begin with the big Lucifer-Morpheus rematch.

While it's uncertain if the ruler of Hell will get her desired revenge, one thing is for sure: everyone will be eager to witness the anticipated rematch between Lucifer and Morpheus. Although it may be a while before the show returns, we can take comfort in the fact that Netflix won't be canceling The Sandman.
