The Sandman showrunner Allan Heinberg has said they want to adapt the entirety of the comic book series in future seasons.The Netflix series, starring Tom Sturridge as lead character Morpheus, is based on the series of comic books by Neil Gaiman.

Originally released in 1989, the main series went onto span 75 issues in total over seven years.Speaking to NME at the show’s premiere in London, Heinberg said they’re hoping to adapt the entirety of Gaiman’s books if the show is renewed for future seasons.Asked how many seasons they’ve got planned, Heinberg said: “We’ve got as many as they’ll let us have.

If enough viewers show up, we can go for quite a long while. We want to do all of it, we want a spin-off miniseries. We’d love to make it for as long as they’ll have us.”The 10-episode first season covers 400 pages of Gaiman’s books from 3,000 in total, according to Heinberg.

Despite the source material’s ambitious subject matter, blending mythology and history with trippy visuals, the show apparently didn’t make many sacrifices in the transition from the page.“All of the stuff I was most afraid of we figured out a way to do,” Heinberg said. “There were moments early on where I was like, I have no idea how we’re going to do this on camera, and we figured them all out.“We only started with the first 400 [pages] this season, so we cut it down quite a bit.
