Netflix's Castlevania Writer: 2nd Season to Premiere This Year
posted on by Karen Ressler
The Castlevania animated series' writer and producer Warren Ellis said on Twitter on Tuesday that the show's eight-episode second season will premiere on Netflix this year, but there is no release date yet. Ellis had previously said in January that it was slated for this summer.
The first four-episode season premiered worldwide on Netflix in July 2017. Voice actor Richard Armitage (Trevor Belmont) told media news website Digital Spy that a third season is in the works.
Producer Adi Shankar announced in 2015 that he was working with Fred Seibert and Kevin Kolde of Frederator Studios on an animated mini-series based on Konami's Castlevania game series. In particular, the story is based on the 1989 NES/Famicom game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. The game is set in 1476, and Dracula has Europe under his grip. Trevor Belmont journeys in an attempt to defeat Dracula, and enlists the sorceress Sypha Belnades, the pirate Grant Danasty, and Dracula's own half-vampire son, Alucard.
