The Sandman Cast and Showrunner Tease Their Favorite Episodes

It still sounds too good to be true, but an adaptation by Neil Gaiman The sand man finally hits Netflix a week from today. The show’s 10-episode first season would combine elements from the comic’s first two volumes, “Preludes and Nocturnes” and “The Dollhouse”. Although fans shouldn’t expect this to be a carbon copy of Gaiman’s original story. Either way, showrunner Allan Heinberg and his cast seem proud of the job they’ve done. Now, they’re sharing the episodes they think will get the biggest reaction from viewers.

Collider caught up with Heinberg and several cast members after their Hall H panel at Comic-Con last weekend. When asked about their favorite Season 1 episodes, they gave a few different answers. Naturally, they couldn’t be too specific because of the spoilers. But they still managed to drop some clues about what those chapters were about.

“The buzz around town is Episode 5 is pretty good,” said Boyd Holbrook, who appears as The Corinthian. “However, I’m not into it. Episode 9, to me, was just a treat of how well they pulled off the convention and what kind of characters were there.

The “convention” almost certainly refers to the gathering of serial killers that appears early in Gaiman’s series. Kyo Ra, who plays Rose Walker, also shared her excitement for fans to watch this episode with its immediate predecessor. However, Vivienne Acheampong (Lucienne) and Jenna Coleman (Johanna Constantine) prefer Episode 5, with Coleman in particular noting that David Thewlis’ John Dee plays an important role in this episode. But Heinberg let the sand out of the bag when he confirmed that this episode will adapt the infamous restaurant act from the comics.

“The dinner episode, ’24 Hours,’ was the one I kind of dreaded,” Heinberg admitted. “Because it’s such an iconic issue and I didn’t know how we were going to do it on TV. And it ended up being my favorite of all the episodes. We shot it like a play, we got built this restaurant we had to rehearse it in ways we couldn’t because of COVID It was a really special episode and our director Jimmy Childs did an amazing job so I have a huge point weak, because I feel like that’s where we figured out how to do the Sand seller The TV show was Episode 5, from a behind-the-scenes perspective.

The sand man will premiere on Netflix on August 5.
