We’ve learned the Netflix Castlevania animated series is premiering its second season this year.

The news comes via show writer Warren Ellis, who confirmed the eight-episode second season is coming this summer.

The first season premiered in July of last year and while short at four episodes – it’s highly recommended.

    So will this be an actual season or another movie split up into “episodes”?

  • A lot of anime adapted from manga runs like a long movie, so I don’t know why this is a problem.

    tfw no Castlevania game confirmed

    You’re welcome for not getting the 2D Super Mario knockoff filled with microtransactions from Konami.

    I quite liked the first 4 episodes (one can hardly call them a season), so I’m looking forward to this. Trevor Belmont was an awesome misanthrope.

  • RichardGristle

    First season was decent enough – I’m down. I did think the animation/art itself was pretty damn badass.

  • PaRaLLaXTHeTiCS

    It was alright. Watched the first three and never felt compelled to get to the fourth.

    you mean second half of the first season?

    ‘cuz four 20 min episodes ain’t a season.

  • Linyian

    Great, I enjoyed the first four episodes. Looking forward to the next batch.

  • NukeA6

    Can’t wait to see more of Alucard. He’s the only one that resembles his game incarnation. I’m not really a fan of this show’s Trevor. Wouldn’t mind if that was Grant Danasty’s personality but he’s nowhere to be seen.

    Remarkably your post was copied by two bots, I don’t think I’ve seen that before, usually it’s only the one time.

  • SevTheBear

    The first 4 episodes was good. SO I am looking forward more of it :)

    What can I say? I’m popular with the non-living.

    Not anymore. They like GameZard now.

    I really liked the first season, looking forward to this.

    (also, why is this thread bot city?)

    Netflix must be expecting this to bomb if they are botting comment threads this heavily and blatantly.

    you mean second half of the first season?’cuz four 20 min episodes ain’t a season.

  • TheOnceAndFutureKing

    most likely because of Niche Gamer’s new hands off approach.

  • Kakaku

    Ironically a bot just copied you. This has gotten out of hand across a few sites recently. The only way I knew you were a real account was because your comments were private. You’d expect bots to automatically hide comments, but they don’t.

  • Kakaku

    You just got your comment copied. You’re plenty popular too.

    Why exactly are bots like this showing up anyway? What’s the purpose?

  • Shattno

    No, I mean this particular thread, I’m used to seeing one or two bots, but this time it’s like eight or something, and they are copying each other. Such weird behaviour, I can’t imagine what someone could possibly stand to gain from it.

  • ProxyDoug

    And Netflix at this point.

    Invasion of the Comment snatchers.
    Soon they’ll be having entire reworked conversations using past comments, and they’ll leave no room for us.

    Devilman was good, too bad tumblr tried to ruin it by being cancerous and shipping. I think they’re done now though. Makes sense considering devilman lady is Nagai’s wet dream so they probably couldn’t handle it whenever they tried to go further with their cancer.
