Netflix Lists Castlevania Series for This Year
posted on by Karen Ressler
Netflix announced in a press release of upcoming premiere dates on Wednesday that a "Castlevania Season 1, Part 1" is slated to debut on its streaming service this year. The series will follow "the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself."
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 would be 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.
