'The Sandman' Receives Two-Part Bonus Episode on Netflix

Netflix has just released a two-part bonus episode of Neil Gaiman‘s The Sandman, featuring one animated short story and one live-action installment.

The animated section, titled “A Dream of a Thousand Cats,” follows an independent arc from the Sandman comic book of the same moniker. The voice cast includes Sandra Oh, James McAvoy, David Tennant, Rosie Day, David Gyasi, Joe Lycett, Michael Sheen, Nonso Anozie, Diane Morgan, Tom Wu and Neil Gaiman himself.

The latter half of the surprise-dropped episode, “Calliope,” stars Melissanthi Mahut and offers a live-action take on the namesake character, who was abducted by a 20th-century writer in the original comics. Aside from Mahut, the cast features Arthur Darvill, Nina Wadia, Souad Faress, Dinita Gohil, Kevin Harvey, Amita Suman and Derek Jacobi.

The series, which is developed and executive produced by Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer, first premiered on Netflix on August 5 with 10 episodes.
