No. We only finished filming at the end of May. Now we have to edit it, do the visual effects and everything else necessary to make it complete (it will take almost a year), put it back, and then when they have it @PrimeVideo will decide when to publish it. https://t.co/5eAyw82Jtf

While this may be disappointing news for Gaiman fans looking to see his bestselling novel come to life, there’s sure to be plenty of material to keep eager viewers entertained until then. Netflix’s own adaptation of Gaiman’s beloved comic book series The sand man is slated to hit screens in August this year, and there’s also good omens season 2, which is also expected to return to Prime Video in the not-too-distant future. As one of the world’s most prolific modern authors, it’s no wonder there are so many works by Gaiman, like Anansi Boysmaking its way to screens, and the new series should be another beloved adaptation.
