Pictures taken on the set of season 2 of the Netflix / Neil Gaiman series The Sandman reveal Indya Moore has joined the cast
After spending decades in development hell, a live-action adaptation of the Neil Gaiman comic book series The Sandman actually made it into production and released into the world as a Netflix series last August. (Read our review HERE.) Now season 2 of the show is in production, and spy pics taken of the set have not only shown returning stars Tom Sturridge and Kirby Howell-Baptiste back at work, but have also revealed that Indya Moore – whose credits include Pose, A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting, and Escape Room: Tournament of Champions – has joined the cast! Some of these set pics can be seen in Twitter embeds at the bottom of this article.
When Netflix ordered season 2, they said, “The Sandman will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to explore even more stories of the Endless.“
Described as “a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy”, The Sandman has the following synopsis: When the Sandman, aka Dream — the powerful cosmic being who controls all our dreams — is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for over a century, he must journey across different worlds and timelines to fix the chaos his absence has caused.
Sturridge, Howell-Baptiste, and Moore are joined in the cast by Boyd Holbrook, Patton Oswalt, Vivienne Acheampong, Gwendoline Christie, Charles Dance, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Stephen Fry, Donna Preston, Vanesu Samunyai (formerly known as “Kyo Ra”), John Cameron Mitchell, Asim Chaudhry, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Joely Richardson, Niamh Walsh, Sandra James Young, Razane Jammal, Mark Hamill, and Mason Alexander Park.
The Sandman was developed by Gaiman, Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer. All three serve as executive producers on the series, and Heinberg is also the showrunner. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
