Netflix

While Castlevania, based on the classic Konami video game, came to an end, the world it created is living on. As Deadline reported in April, Netflix is going forward a new anime series set in the same Castlevania universe with an entirely new cast of characters.

Today, as part of Netflix Geeked’s inaugural Geeked Week, the team behind Castlevania unveiled the new series, created in partnership with Kevin Kolde’s Project 51 Productions with showrunner and executive producer Clive Bradley.

Serving as executive producers, Kolde and Bradley will lead the new series, which is centered on Richter Belmont — a descendant of Castlevania characters Trevor and Sypha — and set against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

Powerhouse Animation will continue to partner on the new Castlevania series as the animation studio with Sam and Adam Deats directing.

The 10-episode fourth and final season of Castlevania, which launched in 2017 as the streamer’s first original anime series and the second adult animated comedy, was released on May 13.

Dark medieval fantasy Castlevania follows Trevor (Richard Armitage), the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, who is trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes (Graham McTavish).
