We already talked about our excitement over the upcoming Sandman television series on Netflix. Not only is Netflix opening its checkbook wider than Dr. Lu Saperstein, but Gaiman is going to be involved. However, he took to Twitter to clarify some points made in the Variety article.

Gaiman, always giving credit where credit is due, clarified that the Sandman movie script was written by Jack Throne, the English screenwriter and playwright. He also clarified that the first season will be eleven episodes and include content from the first volume of Sandman.

But don’t worry, they won’t be trying to put everything into only one season. We’re here for multiple Sandman seasons.

Also, Gaiman will cowrite the pilot.

It will also be set in the modern day, which means updated pop culture references!

Finally, no Good Omens sequel is in the works, and honestly, haven’t we learned from Big Little Lies S.2? Or The Handmaid’s Tale? Why would you want to ruin the perfection?
