Neil Gaiman has hinted at a potential Johanna Constantine spin-off

Neil elaborated on a potential spin-off in a recent interview with Variety. "Anybody who has seen The Sandman episode three has sidled over to us at some point or other in the last six months and said, 'Do you think there's any possibility that we could do a Johanna Constantine show with Jenna Coleman?'" he told the publication. 

"And, oh my God, she's a star and you just want to see her going through battling demons and destroying other people's lives. So that's in there, too. We can keep going on this for a long time to come."

The drama's showrunner, Allan Heinberg, is also keen for more Johanna content. He told Rolling Stone: "Jenna is so amazing in it that it left us all just hungry for more of both Lady Johanna and contemporary Johanna Constantine." 

He added: "And we'd love to do more Johanna Constantine in the present."
