Netflix is returning to the Dreaming for a second season of The Sandman.

According to a report from Deadline, Netflix has ordered a second season of The Sandman.

Season 1 debuted on Aug. 5 and racked up 69.5 million streamed hours in its first week, and jumped to doubling 127.5 million in the second week.

Netflix is declining to comment at the moment, but the news follows a tweet that was deleted by the official DC Twitter account today that said “The dream continues. [The Sandman] will return with new episodes based on multiple volumes of the Neil Gaiman graphic novel to explore even more stories of the Endless.”

No word as of yet if the series will continue to adapt in the same order as the comic series, but there’s no reason to believe it will deviate. The Sandman season 1 is available on Netflix now.

UPDATE: Seconds after we published this story, Netflix confirmed the news.

“Millions upon millions of people have welcomed and watched and loved ‘The Sandman’ on Netflix, from established Sandman fans to people who were simply curious, and then became obsessed with the Lord of Dreams, his family and their goings-on,” Neil Gaiman said in a statement. “It gives me unbelievable pleasure to say that, working with Netflix and Warner Bros., Allan Heinberg, David Goyer and I will be bringing even more of ‘The Sandman’ stories to life. There are some astonishing stories waiting for Morpheus and the rest of them (not to mention more members of the Endless Family to meet). Nobody is going to be happier about this than the Sandman cast and crew: they are the biggest Sandman fans there are. And now it’s time to get back to work. There’s a family meal ahead, after all. And Lucifer is waiting for Morpheus to return to Hell…”
