For over 30 years, fans have dreamed of a live-action adaptation of The Sandman, DC’s original adult fantasy series from the mind of Neil Gaiman and a parade of some of the best artists to ever grace the comic book medium. After years of false starts on a Sandman movie, Netflix has finally done what everyone always hoped someone would have the good sense to do: adapt The Sandman as a TV series.
The Sandman is a sprawling modern mythology about beings known as the Endless: Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction, and Sandman’s protagonist, Dream. Starring Tom Sturridge as Dream, The Sandman boasts a cast that includes Gwendoline Christie, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Jenna Coleman and many more, and between the character posters and first peeks at footage, it looks exactly as lush, beautiful, and nightmarish as this series deserves to be.

Welcome back to the bridge of the Enterprise! The new series takes us back to a time before Captain Kirk, when a slightly different crew was fulfilling their mission “to seek out new life and new civilizations.” Starring Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Celia Rose Gooding as Uhura, Strange New Worlds is a colorful return to some of the aesthetics of the original series and promises a more episodic approach than other modern Trek shows.
