The Sandman: Neil Gaiman Getting Johanna Constantine Spinoff Questions

Less than 48 hours after Netflix's The Sandman adaptation from creator, EP & co-writer Neil Gaiman (Good Omens); EP, co-writer & showrunner Allan Heinberg (Wonder Woman); and EP & co-writer David S. Goyer (Foundation) hit millions of streaming screens, it's looking more and more like Netflix may have a tentpole series on its hands. And possibly a spinoff? Because while some folks may have taken issue with the casting for very silly reasons since it was first announced, there has been a growing call on social media for Jenna Coleman's (Doctor Who) Johanna Constantine to get her own spinoff series. And it hasn't gone unnoticed by Gaiman and the team. "It's been one of the most common questions we've been asked so far. I have no idea, and I think that's probably up to whichever Warner Bros entity controls their characters," Gaiman responded in one tweet about the prospects of a spinoff ever seeing the light of day.

Following that, a scene from Episode 6 finds Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste) coming  to claim an elderly violist:

With the series currently streaming, here's a look back at the official trailer for Netflix's The Sandman:
