Netflix’s animated Castlevania returns for second season Oct. 26

Netflix will debut the second season of its animated Castlevania adaptation Oct. 26.

Producer Adi Shankar made the announcement, and debuted some preview art, on Thursday while attending anime expo in Los Angeles.

Based on the Nintendo Entertainment System title Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, the series has drawn acclaim both as a video game adaptation and a horror anime in its own right, with solid writing by Warren Ellis. Oct. 26 can’t come soon enough!


In his newsletter, Ellis talks about keeping things under wraps and shares an additional piece of key art:

Castlevania Season 2

We are releasing no details on story content, additional characters or any other thing. If I even tried, Netflix would have me poisoned by tomorrow morning. So, for better or worse, all you know is how long it is and when it’s going live.

I’ve seen cuts for two trailers, but I believe they were only for Anime Expo on July 5. I’ll run them if and when they’re released to the public.  These here are all three of the approved key art pieces for the season 2 announcement on the 5th.

I’m not really allowed to let anyone look behind the curtain.  So it’s going to be a long three/four months for me, because I’d love to talk about what is very likely the best voice cast in serial animation today, about director Sam Deats and the frankly astonishing crew at Powerhouse, about our Emmy-award-winning composer Trevor Morris, and to apologise to our fine animation services team in Korea, who I believe I’ve murdered with a couple of the episodes.

I will say that one episode had Sam in tears, twice, and also reduced our marketing queen at Netflix to tears, while she was on a plane. So, if you enjoyed Season 1, then you have around 110 days to get your body ready.
