Sandman Fulfills Fan Dreams With Faithful Comic Adaptation By Neil Gaiman (Season 1 Recap)
Will Sandman get a Season 1 bonus episode on Netflix?
These neverbeforeseen scenes are from the animated adaptation of the story “A Dream of a Thousand Cats,” about a parallel world where cats are huge and humans are their little toys, in addition to images from an adaptation of “Calliope.” , about Dream’s reunion with an exgirlfriend in the worst of circumstances. Netflix has since made the video private, suggesting this was their fault.
Interestingly, the first season of Sandman was originally supposed to be 11 episodes but was changed to 10 episodes. Neil Gaiman himself even commented on Twitter about the film adaptation of one of the four short stories in Dreamland, Calliope: “I saw three young people who had never read the comics cry, first with anger, then with joy at Calliope’s story.” One fan shared footage this story on Twitter where Dream (Tom Sturridge) meets his “exgirlfriend” Calliope (Melissanthi Mahut).

With that, it’s clear that there’s another episode that hasn’t been released by Netflix, with no further details as of yet. It could be that streaming will launch it as a “bonus episode” of season one, or it could be part of a possible second season of Sandman, which will adapt the comic’s fourth installment: “Season of Mists.” Another possibility is that these scenes were discarded during production of the series, but given the fidelity to the comics, we should see them at some point.
In Season 1 of Sandman, the magician Roderick Burgess (Charles Dance) tries to capture Death (Kirby HowellBaptiste) but ends up holding his younger brother Morpheus, the King of Dreams (Sturridge), captive for decades.
