Series’ producer Warren Ellis has announced that the second season of Netflix’ Castlevania anime will be screened this Summer, exclusively on the paid-television service. The second season will also double its episode count from four to eight.
The first season of Castlevania debuted last Summer. The season one arc told the story of down-and-out vampire killer Trevor Belmont, who is forced to step up his monster-hunting game when darkness envelopes the cursed European town of Wallachia.
It was a pretty good show. Telling a recognisable story, at a good pace, featuring some nice action scenes and attractive characters. The season ended with a clearly established setup for the second arc of the story, loosely based on Konami’s legendary video game series.
Castlevania Season Two, which is doubling its episode count from four to eight, will be broadcast on Netflix Summer 2018.
