Neil Gaiman's fantasy comic, The Sandman, will finally arrive on Netflix this summer with the long-awaited live-action series.

To go along with the news, Netflix dropped a new teaser trailer for the series which reveals how Morpheus (Tom Sturridge) was captured over a century ago. This was no small feat, since Morpheus is the King of Dreams and one of the Endless. Once Morpheus is freed, he finds himself somewhat unprepared for the mortal realm. And his own realm, the Dreaming, has been dying without his presence.

In the footage, many other characters become aware of Morpheus’ return. Some of them may not be happy about that. In particular, there’s a literal nightmare given form called The Corinthian (Boyd Holbrook), who senses the presence of his former master. The Corinthian is a killer among killers, and far more deadly than the average dream. But he may be the least of Morpheus’ problems. Because in order to regain his lost power, Morpheus’ journey will take him into the depths of Hell itself. And that is not a euphemism.
