‘The Sandman’ releases bonus episodes ‘A Dream of a Thousand Cats’ and ‘Calliope’

This two-part episode adapts fan favorites “A Dream of a Thousand Cats” and “Calliope”.Netflix is happy to provide more episodes of the fantasy series The Sandman if you binge-watched them and are eager for more! Despite not having officially renewed the show for Season 2, the streamer just announced that a bonus episode will soon be available online.

While it will cover a different arc from the Sandman comic series, the episode will chronicle Dream’s care for his realm as all kinds of creatures pop into it. Two short stories will be told in the two-part bonus episode: “A Dream of a Thousand Cats” and “Calliope.”

The former is one of the most popular stories from the Sandman universe, and it centers on a Siamese cat who loses hope in humanity after witnessing a violent murder. Then she meets Dream, who takes her to a wonderful new world. Series creator Neil Gaiman penned the story.

In “Calliope,” we follow a frustrated author who wrote a best-selling novel but now can’t follow it up with a sequel. As a result, he strikes a deal with an entity to regain his creative ability. There will be a star-studded cast lending their voices to the animated film, including Sandra Oh, Rosie Day, David Gyasi, James McAvoy, David Tennant, Michael Sheen, and Tom Wu.

Hisko Hulsing, who previously worked on the gorgeous Prime Video animated sci-fi series Undone, directed and designed the animated portion of the episode. A statement from Hulsing details the approach taken for The Sandman episode: “Calliope” stars Melissanthi Mahut as the title character, along with Arthur Darvill, Kevin Harvey, Amita Suman, and Derek Jacobi.

As Fate Mother, Fate Crone, and Fate Maiden, Nina Wadia, Souad Faress, and Dinita Gohil reprise their roles. The film is directed by Louise Hooper. Having directed the tenth episode of The Sandman, Hooper and Hulsing are no strangers to the show. Neil Gaiman created an award-winning and globally acclaimed comic book series called The Sandman in 1989.

For decades, it was considered impossible to adapt until Netflix took on the challenge with Gaiman himself, David S. Goyer, and Allan Heinberg. It premiered on August 5 to tremendous critical acclaim.
