Netflix’s “Castlevania” series, a four-episode anime adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, was already picked up for a second season. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long for the second season, as writer Warren Ellis tweeted out that we should expect eight more episodes this coming summer.
Executive producer Adi Shankar told us last year that a second season was already picked up for a double order: “[Not] only has season two already been greenlit,” he told Bloody Disgusting, “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.
