The next season of Audible’s Sandman audio drama is nearly here. According to the audiobook company, it will be released on September 22nd.
Audible released the adaptation a little over a year ago — a 10-hour audio drama based on Neil Gaiman’s comic series, following the story of the Sandman, aka Lord Morpheus as he’s imprisoned on Earth by a cult. Earlier this year, Audible announced that it had renewed the series for an additional two volumes Dirk Maggs, who directed the first volume, will return to work on the next two, while Gaiman will return as narrator.
We know who’ll star in the project: McAvoy will return as Dream/Lord Morpheus, as well as Kat Dennings (Death), Michael Sheen (Lucifer), and Andy Serkis (Matthew the Raven).
The new season will also include Emma Corrin (Thessaly), Brian Cox (Augustus), Arthur Darvill (William Shakespeare), Miriam Margolyes (Despair), John Lithgow (Emperor Joshua Norton), Joanna Lumley (Lady Johanna Constantine), Bebe Neuwirth (Bast), Bill Nighy (Odin), Regé-Jean Page (Orpheus), Kristen Schaal (Delirium), Kevin Smith (Merv Pumpkinhead), David Tennant (Loki), Niamh Walsh (Nuala), and Jeffrey Wright (Destiny).Andrew Liptak, “Audible Reveals Cast and Release Date for Sandman Act II Audio Drama”, tor.com
