Netflix’s animated Castlevania series will end after its upcoming fourth season.
Based on the Konami game franchise of the same name, the series follows Trevor Belmont, the last and most disgraced member of a line of vampire hunters, who attempts to save the world from from extinction at the hands of a vengeful, grief-stricken Vlad Dracula Tepes. The blood-drenched, action-packed series has been a hit since it first premiered on the streaming giant in July of 2017.
The series boasts a starry cast of voice talent including Richard Armitage (The Hobbit), Graham McTavish (The Witcher), James Callis (12 Monkeys the series), Alejandra Reynoso (Artificial), Theo James (The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance), Adetokumboh M’Cormack (Blood of Zeus), and Emily Swallow (Supernatural).
Castlevania was Netflix’s first foray into an original anime-styled series drawing inspiration from Ayami Kojima’s artwork in the video game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, as well. The series was created by Warren Ellis who was a writer and executive producer on the show until mid-2020 when he was the subject of numerous sexual misconduct allegations, at which time he was removed from the series.
According to Deadline, Netflix is discussing a possible spin-off series that will deal with an entirely new cast of characters, but that is all conjecture at this time as the streaming platform has not confirmed it.
The final season of Castlevania will premiere on May 13, 2021. Are you a fan of the series? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
