Castlevania Spin-Off ‘Nocturne’ Announced For Netflix (VIDEO)
It was only a matter of time before Netflix drew back the curtain and revealed the next installment of its massively popular Castlevania animated series. While Castlevania Season 4 brought about a natural conclusion to Trevor and Sypha’s tale, the streaming platform announced shortly after the final season’s debut that a new series was in development featuring Richter Belmont, and set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. Fast forward almost exactly one year later and Netflix has given a name to the new series: Nocturne.
Netflix recently took to YouTube to unveil Castlevania: Nocturne. Led by showrunner Kevin Kolde and Creator/Writer Clive Bradley, Nocturne will follow a descendant of Trevor Belmont, Richter, as well as Maria Renard as they search for vampires in the year 1792. Check out the teaser trailer below:
For those unfamiliar with the Castlevania video game series, Richter Belmont is most widely known for his role in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, AKA Dracula X. Richter is also featured during the opening dialogue of Symphony of the Night, where he square off against Dracula following a meme-worthy bit of wording from the prince of darkness himself. We likely won’t see the latter occur on the small screen, as funny as that would be.
Castlevania: Nocturne is now in production for Netflix.
