Eventually, Richter becomes the new lord of Dracula’s castle with a certain mindset to resurrect the vampire himself. Then the game follows Dracula’s half-vampire son Alucard, who at last defeats Richter. But it is quite blurred if the new series will adapt any aspects from the Castlevania game or not.

Based on the popular video games from Konami, Castlevania has been widely famous among the otaku from the very first season. The anime series is one of the best game adaptations to date. The series formed a trend of other game-based series at Netflix, which include upcoming adaptations of franchises like Assassin’s Creed and Resident Evil.

Castlevania has gained widespread admiration over the years for its remarkable animation, stylish action, and very unique voice actors. Previously the news of the final season of Castlevania was very much disappointing for the audience.

Luckily, the spinoff of Castlevania brought excitement to some die-hard fans. Clive Bradley is confirmed as the writer and showrunner of the currently unnamed new series. Also, Powerhouse Animation, which worked on the original animated series, will return for this follow-up. Netflix didn’t announce the releasing date or the voice actors yet, but at last, it’s a piece of great news to know there’s officially more Castlevania in the pipeline.
