It seems like Morpheus wouldn’t let James McAvoy sleep until he revealed the debut date for the continuation of Audible’s best-selling original title of all time, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman Vertigo/ DC comics series.
The Sandman: Act II will return once again on September 22 and will be adapted and directed by Dirk Maggs and narrated by Gaiman, along with an original score by composer James Hannigan.
The impressive cast includes McAvoy (Morpheus), Kat Dennings (Death), Michael Sheen (Lucifer), Andy Serkis (Matthew the Raven), Jeffrey Wright (Destiny), Regé-Jean Page (Orpheus), Brian Cox (Augustus), Emma Corrin (Thessaly), John Lithgow (Emperor Joshua Norton), David Tennant (Loki), Bill Nighy (Odin), Kristen Schaal (Delirium), Kevin Smith (Merv Pumpkinhead), Bebe Neuwirth (Bast), Miriam Margolyes (Despair), Joanna Lumley (Lady Johanna Constantine), Niamh Walsh (Nuala) and Arthur Darvill (William Shakespeare).
The Sandman: Act II will consist of Gaiman’s “Season of Mists” and “A Game of You,” “Distant Mirrors” story arcs, as well as the first three issues from “Fables & Reflections.”
And for those that haven’t listened yet, the first installment of The Sandman will be available for free to download or stream from Audible from July 22-Oct. 22.

To be honest I found the first one hard to get into, but with Kevin Smith in the second act, I’m going to try the first one again
