Netflix just put up the entire first season of their video game-based “Castlevania” series for instant streaming, which sadly only consists of four 30-minute episodes. Chances are most of you reading this right now have already binged the season and are hungry for more, and you’ll be happy to know that more is definitely coming.
Executive producer Adi Shankar just revealed to our offshoot site Cinema Runner that a second season has been ordered!
“[Not] only has season two already been greenlit,” he told the site, “but the episode order has been doubled to eight episodes. So the chapter definitely hasn’t fully closed on this story.”
The series stars Graham McTavish (“Preacher”) as Dracula, Richard Armitage (“Hannibal”) as Trevor Belmont and James Callis (“Battlestar Galactica”) as Alucard. Fred Tatasciore, Alejandra Reynos and Emily Swallow also star.
“Castlevania” 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 Tepe himself.
The animated series is written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Adi Shankar.
