Last week, Netflix has released all 10 episodes of The Sandman, a production that adapts Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed and award-winning comic. The series received acclaim from fans and specialized critics, but left a tinge of desire for more. However, it looks like we’ll be getting more adaptation news sooner than expected.
This week’s chapter was dedicated to The Sandman, but fans have noticed that there are some scenes in the YouTube video that didn’t make it into the 10 chapters of the first season. Among the images are excerpts of images based on stories from Dreamland, the third volume of The Sandman in the comics.
According to the site, Tom Sturridge is fully featured in Dream’s live-action scenes. They filmed all these things; it’s not invented. Of course video Shortly thereafter, the series was taken off the air by Netflix. However, some fans took this screenshot off the screen and shared it on Twitter. Verify:

Meanwhile, Neil Gaiman responded to a fan about the alleged extra chapter scene via Twitter. According to him, “We never got to the point where it sounded convincing, so we reluctantly let him go. Maybe we’ll try again if there’s a second season.” See publication:
We never got him to the point where he looked convincing, and reluctantly let him go. Maybe we’ll try again if there’s a season 2.

However, this is not the first sign that the series has an additional “hidden” chapter. Even before the launch of the site IMDB, which lists movies and TV series, had information that The Sandman would have 11 episodes in its first season. However, the number was changed to 10, and at the time it all looked like a common mistake on the site. However, fans are now speculating if there is another episode not released by the platform.
The Netflix series, which has 10 episodes in its first season, is based on stories from the comics, as well as from Preludes and Nocturnes and part of Neil Gaiman’s A Doll’s House. Dream (Tom Sturridge), the ruler of Dreaming, is imprisoned by the humans after a ritual designed to arrest Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste), his sister.
Directed by Gaiman himself, The Sandman stars Tom Sturridge as Dream, Jenna Coleman as Joanna Constantine, Gwendolyn Christie as Lucifer, Boyd Holbrook as Corinthian, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Mason Alexander Park as Desiree and others. Total 11 episodes of Sandman are now available on Netflix.
