Of The Season of Mists has Short Lives

The Infinis family continues to grow for season 2 of Sandman. While little is currently known about the sequel to Dream's adventures, Netflix has announced several additions to the series' cast that indicate that the stories from the comics The Season of Mists And Short Lives will be at the heart of this second season.

“Each of his characters is as powerful as Dream – almost as clever – and far more ruthless,” series showrunner Allan Heinberg told Tudum.

So, Ruairi O'Connor (The Morning Show) plays Orpheus, the son of Dream and the muse Calliope (seen in the bonus episode of season 1). The latter is a romantic and idealistic young man, who takes after his father, and whose tragic story spans across The Season of Mists And Short Lives in comics.

But that's not all, as Heinberg points out: “In the second chapter of Sandman, the Dream King will have to face the formidable rulers of Hell, Asgard, the Faeries and other distant realms.”

Freddie Fox (The Gentlemen) plays Loki, the god of chaos, while Clive Russell (Sherlock Holmes) plays the role of Thor's father, Odin, and Thor is played by Laurence O'Fuarain (The Witcher: Blood Legacy).

On the Fairy Side, Ann Skelly (The Nevers) plays the role of Nuala and Douglas Booth (The Dirt) is Cluracan. They are both royal emissaries and siblings who are complete opposites.

Jack Gleeson plays the sadistic elf Puck (also from the Fairy Court), a role whose description is reminiscent of the one that made him famous in Game Of Thronesaka Joffrey Baratheon.

In the Land of Mortals, Indya Moore (Laid) plays Wanda, a transgender woman who proves to be an indispensable guide on a road trip from the Infinites to the waking world.

Finally, Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge) lends his voice to Barnabas, the cynical dog from The Prodigal. Note that the latter is thus presented by Netflix for this season 2, but that in the comics Prodigal is in fact Destruction.

All these characters appear in the plots of The Season of Mists And Short Livestwo of the most popular albums in Neil Gaiman's saga (Good Omens), so fans of the comics can rejoice to know that the new episodes of the series will adapt them.

Sandman will soon return to Netflix.
