Netflix released a new trailer for The Sandman, its upcoming series, on Monday, more than a year after a teaser for the highly anticipated series was released in September 2021. The series would be accessible on Netflix from August 5th, according to Netflix.
The streaming series is based on Neil Gaiman’s DC graphic novels of the same name, which he began writing in 1993. The trailer of this series is utterly captivating, let’s take a look at this tweet from Netflix sharing the trailer!

The trailer depicted how Roderick Burgess (Charles Dance) incarcerated Dream (Tom Sturridge). Death, played by Kirby Howell-Baptiste, and Johanna Constantine, played by Jenna Coleman, are featured prominently in the new trailer. Mark Hamill will also lend his voice to the character of Merv Pumpkinhead, according to Netflix.
In the recently released trailer, you can see Tom Sturridge’s character, Dream, one of the seven Endless (inconceivably powerful beings, older and greater than gods), is about to break free from his 75-year incarceration in the mortal realm at the hands of human occultists.
Though time matters little to Dream, his absence from the Dreaming — a reality made up of all the dreams that living creatures generate — has ramifications that only those who have been touched by magic, such as Johanna Constantine, can see.
As seen in the new trailer, in Dream’s absence, the Dreaming has become a distorted, broken world where nightmares like the Corinthian are free to run wild and wreak havoc on people’s minds.
The Sandman’s trailer, like the original novel, emphasizes how much of a mess the Dreaming becomes without Dream, and how his allies, such as librarian Lucienne and Matthew the Raven, fight to make things right.

As mentioned above, the cast includes Tom Sturridge as Dream, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, and Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer. You will also see in the series Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, David Thewlis as John Dee, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, and Patton Oswalt who will voice Matthew the Raven.
Once released, you can watch the series with the help of a VPN on American Netflix from anywhere around the globe!
It certainly entices the viewers to look forward to the series. However, the teaser does not reveal whether Netflix’s “The Sandman” will feature any unexpected cameos from DC Comics characters like the source material does. We, the fans, would very much like to be surprised, though.
