posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Netflix began streaming a trailer on Saturday for the second season of Adi Shankar's Castlevania animated series.
Netflix describes the second season:
Returning to Netflix for a second season, Castlevania, inspired by the classic video game series, is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. Trevor Belmont, last survivor of his house, is no longer alone, and he and his misfit comrades race to find a way to save humanity from extinction at the hands of the grief-maddened Dracula and his sinister vampire war council.
Sam Deats is directing the series, Warren Ellis is the writer and executive producer, and other executive producers include Adi Shankar, Fred Seibert, and Kevin Kolde.
The first four-episode season premiered worldwide on Netflix in July 2017. Viz Media has licensed the season for home video.
The show's English cast stars:
- Graham McTavish as Dracula
- Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont
- James Callis as Alucard
- Alejandra Reynoso as Sypha Belnades
- Emily Swallow as Lisa Tepes
- Tony Amendola as The Elder
The Japanese dub cast stars Ryotaro Okiayu, Shinichiro Miki, Naoya Uchida, and Ayaka Shimoyamada.
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.
