Castlevania Season 3 Confirmed By Netflix
The second season of Castlevania dropped on Netflix five days ago. Fans devoured the season and began clamoring for more almost immediately. Netflix has announced they will oblige them by officially ordering a third season.
Historically, Netflix has wasted no time renewing popular series. Orange is the New Black, for example, received a three-season renewal prior to the release of season 4. However, it looks like the streaming site wanted to wait and see with Castlevania. The results showed immediate progress. Season 2 has a 100% critic approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 93% from fans. That’s up from season 1’s 79% and 89%, respectively. Those kind of ratings tend to lead to long runs, and commissioning ten new episodes indicates we’ll receive just that.
Previously, Richard Armitage (the voice of Trevor Belmont) stated that the team had already begun work on season 3. Back in June, Armitage told Digital Spy, “We’re about to record a third. The second season hasn’t been aired yet, but we’re about to do a third.” Either the production team knew something we didn’t or they had overwhelming confidence in their product. In the end, Netflix confirmed that the early work will soon see the light of day.
Fans of the Castlevania franchise must be ecstatic at the renaissance. It seemed like Konami had abandoned the title when they shifted their focus to mobile games. Now, it appears they have fully committed to the beloved series. They aim to bring the game to Nintendo Switch and launched a site dedicated to Castlevania lore. Perhaps most welcome of all is the release of Castlevania: Requiem, a compilation title for PlayStation 4. The game dropped alongside season 2 and contains both Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. There may be no better time to jump back into the franchise than right now.
You can watch Castlevania on Netflix right now. We will keep you updated when a season 3 release date becomes available. Netflix has proven consistent in regards to release dates, so fans should probably keep late October 2019 free.
