After “The Sandman” topped the Netflix charts in Germany for several weeks, the series has now been replaced by German agent series “Kleo”. Internationally, however, The Sandman is still topping the charts. According to Variety, the series has been streamed to more than 127.5 million viewers. hours. Well done to Neil Gaiman, creator of the template and producer of the series.
Despite this, Gaiman recently expressed skepticism about the possibility of a sequel. The Sandman is a very expensive series and you have to be extremely successful to justify a sequel.
