Netflix Officially Announces New Animated Series Based on Castlevania

Remember the “super violent” animated series based on Castlevania that we reported is actually happening? It seems like Netflix has picked up the bill, as they’ve announced a new animated series based on the Castlevania video game franchise.

The first season of the production will include four half hour episodes, and its set for a broadcasting date sometime later this year. A second season is already planned for sometime next year.

The description for the series reads:

“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.”

Further details weren’t confirmed, but we’ll keep you guys posted.
