Based on The Neil Gaiman Comics
The Sandman series is based on very popular comics of the same name. They are written by the famous Neil Gaiman. Those who are not already aware should know that the first season of The Sandman covers only the first two volumes of comics.
They are Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll’s House. There are 10 core volumes of the comic. Not just that, there are so many other adaptations including a Prequel and many spinoffs from the Sandman Universe.

So, there is no question about the plot or possible storyline for the makers. They already have the best-ever storyline and potential characters. All they have to do is get all the characters and shoot for the second season! And that with their screenplay of course!
All these volumes and spinoffs, prequels, and more are waiting there to be turned into a series. And such number of volumes is quite more if they want they can have so many more seasons of The Sandman, just saying.
The Sandman Season 1 Ending
Earlier, Dream introduced Lucifer as the “Friend” but later on by the ending of the first season, we saw quite different scenes playing out. There are many generals from Hell who are encouraging Lucifer to fight against the Dream.
Along with that, we saw what Corinthians has been doing. Also, there is a much-awaited love story between the dream and Nada. Let’s see what plays out how.
The Sandman has been a success with both critics and audiences. The numbers are great. It's time to resort to begging: Netflix, PLEASE give us a season 2. https://t.co/ou4YAf0mTC

The Sandman Season 2: Might Follow The Comics
As we discussed earlier, the first season of the series covers two volumes. If we go according to this format, the second season of The Sandman might cover the next two volumes of the comics.
So according to that, there will be A Game of You that has the story of Barbie in it. She happens to be the tenant of Hal’s residence as shown in season 1. She has her own fantasy realm, known as The Land. It is inspired by the popular Labyrinth by Jim Henson.
She also happens to have a companion with her i.e. a creature that kinda looks like a dog, but not exactly a dog. It is called Martin Tenbones. He is very wise and as you can imagine, can talk!
There are going to be talking animals, talking severed heads, what more fans could ask for!? So let’s just wait for the official plot release from Netflix and then we will see how it goes.
The Sandman Season 2 Possible Storyline
Of the comics and many volumes, the second season i.e. third and fourth comics happen to be the most popular. And guess what, if – when the second season gets is a renewal, we are going to get official confirmation from the makers.
Then fans will be happy after knowing about the storyline for the second season.
According to that, the story in the comics begins with an officially “Endless family meeting.” Yes, you read it right, and endless one. We are talking about Dream’s family and fans are already aware of a few family members.
For this meeting, we are going to see only four members, rather than all eight members. There will be dreams, death, desire, and despair.
