The Sandman TV Show is Dead For Now

Comic book fans anxious to see Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” comic book series come to life on the small screen will have to wait a little longer. “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke, who was previously attached to develop the show for Warner Bros. and the CW has some bad news for fans: it’s not happening. At least, not in 2011.

Kripke tells The Live Feed while at PaleyFest to promote his show “Supernatural”:

[The Sandman] just didn’t quite happen this season through nobody’s fault, and hopefully we can do it again in the future.

Hey, just because it’s not happening this year doesn’t mean it won’t happen eventually. Look at the roller coaster ride that was David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” TV show. First it was happening, then it wasn’t, and now it’s happening again.

Soon, real soon, you’ll see Morpheus on the small screen. Maybe.
