Back in 2017 Gamers Elite let you know that Castlevania was coming to Netflix (as well as a Witcher series!). The show, which is obviously from a game was released in 2017 and honestly? People loved it.
Castlevania Season 1:
Castlevania is an American adult animated web television series based on the 1989 video game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse by Konami. The series follows Trevor Belmont, who defends the nation of Wallachia from Dracula and his minions.
I mean let’s be real here most every time a game gets turned into a book, a tv show, a movie or a cartoon people love it, especially if its a well-received game like Castlevania.
Because of how well-liked Castlevania Season 1 was and the fact that people wanted MORE (there were only 4 episodes!), they are now doing Castlevania Season 2.
The 4 episodes in the first season were:
In Wallachia in 1455, a young woman named Lisa who wishes to be a doctor seeks out Vlad Dracula Tepes, a vampire with advanced scientific knowledge. Intrigued by her courage and ambition, Dracula agrees to teach her, while she, in turn, offers to help him reconnect with humanity. The two eventually fall in love and marry.
Following an altercation at a pub, Trevor Belmont seeks food and respite in the city of Gresit, which has been besieged by Dracula’s forces every night. As he passes through town, he learns that the townspeople blame a group of magic users known as the Speakers for Dracula’s assault. He saves their Elder from a pair of corrupt priests, who brings him back to his home to meet his fellow Speakers.
Exploring the catacombs, Trevor realizes that they have been unusually constructed and contain devices matching old family descriptions of devices within Dracula’s castle. Finding a stone statue in the visage of a Speaker, Trevor is attacked by a giant Cyclops.
Night falls as Dracula’s army descends upon Gresit, killing the Bishop. As Trevor continues his escape, Sypha appears to aid him, revealing herself as a powerful magic user. Trevor exposes the clergy’s actions as the true reason for Dracula’s invasion and assists the people in mounting a defense against the demons.
Somehow along the way the news of Netflix renewing or not was lost, I never heard anything more about it and I know a lot of other people hadn’t heard as well.
But, apparently not only did Netflix renew the series for Castlevania Season 2, but they did it on the day Castlevania Season 1 was released. Plus, Castlevania Season 2 will have double the episodes – 8 shows to satisfy your fix!
Warren Ellis, the writer behind the show has said on twitter that a lot of people asked if there was going to be a Castlevania Season 2 or if the series was canceled and he confirmed that yes, they are coming back. So this isn’t a rumor, it’s really true, right from the screenwriter’s mouth.
As of right now, there is no exact date on when you can watch Castlevania Season 2. However, the first season was released in July, so chances are since Ellis says they are coming back in the Summer, that it will be in July.
