The first photos from the set of The Sandman 2 reveal the return of Dream next to a new mysterious character dressed in white. The Netflix adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved comics will return with new episodes, probably in 2024. Although the writers’ strike is hampering the production of various shows and films, the scripts for the second season of The Sandman they were ready before the protest and filming is proceeding according to schedule.
The first photos from the set of the new episodes of The Sandman released by DTN News offer us a first look at Dream, aka Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), intent on talking to a new character dressed all in white. At the moment the identity of the character in question has not been confirmed, but all the clues would suggest that it is Orpheus.
The Sandman 2, Neil Gaiman: “The show will only be canceled if the actors are eaten by weasels”
Who is Orpheus in the Sandman universe
If Orpheus’ identity is confirmed, it will mark the introduction of another major character to the universe of The Sandman. Orpheus, which first debuted in The Sandman #29 as part of Fables and Reflections, is none other than the son of Morpheus and Calliope. The introduction of him, however, is rather unusual since Orpheus has been presented simply as a head deprived of the body.
Curiously Orpheus’ name was mentioned during the bonus episode of The Sandman. It was established that he had died in a horrific way and it seems that the writers of the series have been pondering for some time to make him a central figure of the second season. Since he is the son of Morpheus and Calliope, time will tell what happens between him and his father in the photos released.
