You can currently watch “The Sandman” on Netflix, as the series that was previously announced during Netflix’s 2023 “Tudum” event, is now streaming!

But as we all know … I’m not a big fan of shows that have the potential to creep me out.

So I was definitely on the edge about watching this one. However — after digging a little, instead of just judging it on its creepy poster art, I noticed 4 things.

So here are …

4 Reasons You Need To Watch “The Sandman” On Netflix

1. Kirby Howell-Baptise

Who killed in “Cruella”, and also stars in “Killing Eve” and “Queenpins”.

Yup! Dassit.

Those four Black actors and actresses are your reasons!

And ain’t nothing else needed to be said, to convince me to watch “The Sandman” on Netflix, if I’m being honest. I mean I love Kirby enough that I would have watched this just to see her character. But I’m always down to watch new Black faces on screen, and all it takes for me to be interested in a dope concept — is to see more than one Black face, in a primary role!

But if you’re still not convinced.

Here are a few more less important reasons to watch “The Sandman” …

  • “The Sandman” is a dark fantasy Netflix series based on “The Sandman” comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman (“Good Omens”, “Coraline”).
  • Gaiman is also an Executive Producer and Co-Writer.
  • The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television.
  • It’s dope AF, and actually not as creepy as I thought it would be!
  • The world-building really sucks you in.
  • I fell in love with the characters who made me immediately want another season.

Still not convinced? Here’s what “The Sandman” series is all about …

With a rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy — where contemporary fiction, historical drama, and legend are seamlessly interwoven — “The Sandman” follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic–and human–mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.

And while the description is a bit vague, it’s a great show, and totally worth a watch.
