Hell, it seems, is home to some familiar faces.

Audible revealed today that The Sandman: Act II, the follow-up to last year’s New York Times bestselling audio production of Neil Gaiman’s iconic fantasy comic, will be released on September 22, 2021. Once again adapted and directed by the award-winning Dirk Maggs, The Sandman’s next chapter will also be co-executive produced and creative directed by Neil Gaiman, who will return as the production’s narrator. Alongside him will be Act I cast members James McAvoy in the title role as Dream, Kat Dennings as Death, Michael Sheen as Lucifer and Andy Serkis as Matthew the Raven.

However, The Sandman: Act II will take Morpheus to new corners of reality, bringing dozens of new characters to listeners for the first time as well as new performers to bring those characters to life. Joining the cast for Act II will be Jeffrey Wright as Destiny, Regé-Jean Page as Orpheus, Brian Cox as Augustus, Emma Corrin as Thessaly, John Lithgow as Emperor Joshua Norton, David Tennant as Loki, Bill Nighy as Odin, Kristen Schaal as Delirium, Kevin Smith as Merv Pumpkinhead, Bebe Neuwirth as Bast, Miriam Margolyes as Despair, Arthur Darvill as William Shakespeare, Joanna Lumley as Lady Johnanna Constantine, Niamh Walsh as Nuala, Aidan Turner, Adrian Lester, Ray Porter and many more. It’s an impressive collection of talent, but then again, so is the material. The Sandman: Act II will adapt volume four of the graphic novel series, Season of Mists, and volume five, A Game of You. It will also take on the experimental “Distant Mirrors” quartet and “Convergence” trio from The Sandman’s sixth volume, Fables & Reflections.
