Without any fanfare, Netflix has announced a Castlevania series. Actually, “announced” is a strong word; sitting in the middle of a press release listing the streaming content company’s planned original programming for 2017 was a surprising reveal: “Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017.”

The listing of the show was spotted by io9, and it is likely the previously rumored animated series by Adi Shankhar. Shankhar is teaming up with Frederator (of “Adventure Time” and “Bravest Warriors” fame) to make what he called a “super violent ” series.

Shankhar has been hinting at this series for some time now, though nothing has been officially confirmed. Putting two and two together, one can surmise that the series has finally found a home with Netflix, a company that has been known to scoop up all manner of intellectual property.

is it based off other literature? games? or will it be its own unique fictional story?

I've seen that before and it shows how good this dude is. It's unfortunate that Hollywood doesn't seem to like the cut of his jib (or vice a versa). An R rated power rangers or punisher movie by him would do very well (in my opinion, re: deadpool) at the box office.

Anyone watched yet?
I'm not a big anime fan but I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to more.

If I remember correctly they announced season 2 was signed before season 1 came out. I for one support that corporate decision, I thought season one was great.

Second season is out today.
Watch it! It's fantastic.
Watched it all yesterday, ‘‘twas better than the first. Was surprised at the ending but if it’s anyrh like the game it will not halt more seasons.

Since the last two seasons seemed based on castlevania 3, I’d love to see them move on to another catslwvania like Symphony of the Night and Rondel of Blood.



On another note, I’ve been playing these games off and on since the original on NES and I just figured out that Alucard was Dracula backwards.

For those who don’t get the miserable pile of secrets.


Ghastly voice acting mixed with bad translation made for classic lines.

Just finally got to watch a handful of episodes of the first season. Neither my husband nor I were big Castlevania people but we are both totally sucked in. Now that we're done watching DD, this is our goto when we have a little time together and need to just relax.
