Took 'em long enough (in times where series are often renewed before they've even gotten to second episode).

I'll watch season 2, but wouldn't have really cared if the hit-n-miss first season was all we ever got.

The source material is vastly superior, as it the way with these things.
Hopefully the exposure brought more readers in for the collections.

I jumped in mid-way through Seasons of Mists (the post-party, Azaphel episode), so would have been pretty disappointed if Sandman 2 hadn't gone ahead!

Just by way of counterpoint, I’m on record as not really being a fan of the comic but found the TV series surprisingly entertaining. My wife, who very much doesn’t do comics, loved it despite having zero familiarity with the original material.

Ditto for mine, at least for the first arc + 'bonus' episode.

She asked about future spoilers regarding how things play out with The Endless etc - I left some of the new collections on her bedside locker, only to find that they had mysteriously been placed back on the book shelf the next day (in the wrong order).
