Netflix Orders Castlevania Season 2 Hours After the Series Premiere
Earlier today, Netflix stealthily released the first season of their exclusive Castlevania animated series, which is produced by Wow! Unlimited Media’s Frederator Studios. The anime-influenced series based on the hit Konami video game franchise now has the four-episode season available on the streaming platform and is garnering positive buzz from critics and audiences alike. Apparently, this positive reception has already proven significant enough for Netflix to greenlight Castlevania season 2, not even a full day after the initial launch of the series.
Netflix has approved of production for season 2 of the much anticipated Castlevania animated series and ordered eight episodes for the new season which is double that of the first! The series will likely continue the storyline, adapting the plot from Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse. At first it seemed that given the few number of episodes, it was originally meant to be the first half of a two-part season, but it is likely that the new order has been adapted to a separate, new installment to feel more self-contained. The voice cast is expected to return including Graham McTavish as Dracula and Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont.
While some critics have pointed out some flaws in the new series, they do seem to believe that the show is on the right track to be a solid video game adaptation. Hopefully, season 2 will address these concerns and deliver a biting, immortal take on the Dracula story. Are you guys happy to hear that Netflix has confirmed a Castlevania season 2?
