Neil Gaiman’s popular comic book series The Sandman, published by DC Comics, is finally available to stream on Netflix! It has been a very long time coming, as the show had initially gone into development back in the early 1990s. Now it is finally here.
If you haven’t started the show yet, or you’re still working through the initial 10-episode run, you might be curious about whether or not the season finale ends with a post-credits scene that could tease a potential sophomore season.
Does The Sandman have a post-credits scene?
No, The Sandman does not have a post-credits scene. The final moment of the finale before it cuts to the credits sequence is all there is to tide us over until the second season (should it be renewed). Luckily, The Sandman season 1 finale does provide a great set-up for the show’s potential second season, which we won’t spoil here.
Don’t skip The Sandman credits
Even though The Sandman doesn’t have a post-credits teaser, that doesn’t mean you should skip the credit sequence. This show has special credits and every episode’s sequence is unique.
During the San Diego Comic-Con, Neil Gaiman revealed that Dave McKean, the cover artist for The Sandman comics, had designed 10 distinct closing credits for the show. So while you might be tempted to skip to the next episode, you really should pause to enjoy these beautiful animations!
According to Slash Film, McKean “illustrated every single cover of the series, not to mention those of the spin-off comic, ‘The Dreaming.’ The work can even be found in volumes collecting the covers of both comics, titled ‘Dust Covers’ and ‘Dream States.'”
Bringing McKean back to create these unique sequences is not only a fun way to keep people around a little longer to pay respect to the dozens of people who worked on the show, but it also further honors the source material.
The Sandman is now streaming on Netflix.
