Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is coming to life on Netflix this summer, and a new trailer and the release date have been revealed. Netflix revealed as part of its Geeked Week event that the adaptation of the critically-acclaimed DC/Vertigo comic book is set to release on August 5th.

You can see the new trailer below for the series, which offers a more extensive look at Morpheus, the Lord of Dreams as well as at least two of his family members in Death and Desire. We also get our first look at the villainous Corinthian, a nightmare who has escaped from the Dreaming.

The series is written by Gaiman and Allan Heinberg and stars Tom Sturridge as Dream, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Joely Richardson as Ethel Cripps, David Thewlis as John Dee, Stephen Fry as Gilbert, Patton Oswalt as the voice of Matthew the Raven, and Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine. Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Razane Jammal, Niamh Walsh, Kyo Ra, and Sandra James Young also star. The series is described as follows:

A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven, The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
