Castlevania is getting a new show on Netflix

Posted on February 8, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Update: Here’s the official blurb:

“Inspired by the classic video game series, “Castlevania” is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Adi Shankar.”


Original: Believe it or not, a new show based on Castlevania is coming to Netflix. Not much is known at present, as it was buried in a press release about Netflix’s upcoming programming slate.

The one thing we can say is that the show will premiere sometime in 2017. Other than that, there’s literally nothing to go on. Hopefully we’ll have some more information and a look at it soon.

    • castlevania is overrated………………………..

        No, it’s underrated. I think Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, and GTA are all overrated. Castlevania deserves more respect.

    I was wondering when he was going to get his own spin-off.

  • Kaine Morrison

    New?
    There was an old show?

  • Blake Good

    Wonder if it’s live-action or animated?

  • FinalArcadia

    Live-action or animated, I can’t really see this turning out well. As a big fan of Castlevania, I’d love to see a show actually be decent, but my expectations are low.

    I do wonder if it’ll be based on a particular game in the series or if it’s an original story… Lament of Innocence might be a nice choice since it’s the first chronologically and I could see the plot (little that there is; I love it though haha) working. Though something like Symphony of the Night has the recognition factor.

    Not really that excited, though it might be because I never played Castlevania. Plus, there are other games that are just as deserving, if not more, of a new show.

  • Annie

    I love Castlevania so I really hope this doesn’t suck…

  • Tlink7

    I’m sure this will turn out great
