Castlevania TV Series Seemingly Confirmed By Adventure Time Producer









The founder of Frederator Studios, the producer of “Adventure Time” and “The Fairly OddParents,” has seemingly confirmed development of an animated series based on the acclaimed “Castlevania” video game franchise.
RELATED: Whoa! “Adventure Time” to End in 2018
Appearing on the Nickelodeon Animation podcast, Fred Seibert alluded to an “unnamed” project “based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years.” “[W]e’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started,” he said. “But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going.”
Although Seibert doesn’t mention “Castlevania” by name, his comments match up with an announcement made in August 2015 by producer Adi Shankhar (“Dredd,” “Punisher: Dirty Laundry”) that he’s working with Frederator on a “super violent” adaptation of 1989’s “Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.” Asked at the time just how much gore and violence the planned miniseries would contain, Shankhar replied, “There will be a lot. The goal is to bring hard hitting anime to the America and be America’s first animated series for adults.”
A prequel to the original game, “Castlevania III” follows Trevor Belmont, wielder of the Vampire Killer Whip, as he sets out to defeat Dracula with the help of young sorceress Sypha Belnades and Dracula’s son Alucard.

Animated CASTLEVANIA TV Series Officially Announced For Netflix At Some Point This Year

We've been hearing whispers of a possible Castlevania show for quite a while, and now Adi Shankar has announced that the first season is set to debut on Netflix at some point in 2017. More past the jump.


Last night, Netflix sent out a press release announcing their programming slate for the year, and a show based on the popular Castlevania video game series was mentioned without any fanfare and no details whatsoever.

It was assumed that this must be the animated series we had heard was in the works from Adi Shankar (Dredd, The Grey, that "gritty" Power Ranger short), and sure enough, the man himself officially confirmed it soon after via the Facebook post below:


Shankar has previously teased a "dark, satirical" adaptation that would "flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," and now he's promising the "western world's first good video game adaptation." That remains to be seen of course, but with talent like Warren Ellis and Adventure Time's Kevin Kolde involved, it should be well worth a look at the very least.

Tell us, are youy looking forward to seeing The Belmont family slay bloodsuckers on Netflix, or would you have preferred a live-action feature adaptation of Castlevania? Sound off below.

Netflix's CASTELVANIA Animated Series Gets A Bloody First Teaser Trailer; Premiere Date Revealed

The first teaser for Adi Shakar's animated adaptation of the Castlevania video game series has debuted over at Netflix's LATAM channel, and it promises a stylish, and gory take on the material.





Back in February, we found out that Adi Shakar was developing a Castlevania animated series for Netflix, and now the first trailer has just debuted.

It's brief, but we do get a pretty good idea of the animation style and there are glimpses of a few bloody vampire kills in there, too.


Shankar has previously teased a "dark, satirical" adaptation that would "flip the vampire sub-genre on its head," and more recently he promised us the "western world's first good video game adaptation." That remains to be seen of course, but with talent like Warren Ellis and Adventure Time's Kevin Kolde involved, it should be well worth a look at the very least.

According to the teaser, the show is set for a July 7 premiere.

As we noted in our previous news story, the cover art bears a very close resemblance to the original Castlevania art from the debut NES game, featuring a hero on the very front of the cover while Dracula and his castle loom in the distance. Obviously, the Netflix series is going for the same vibe in terms of familiar characters and exciting action – but, obviously, its anime style and mature-rated approach enabled Shankar, writer Warren Ellis and the team at Frederator Studios to go with something much more visceral than the original games could provide.
We’ll be seeing more promotional stuff for Castlevania over the next few weeks, especially with E3 on the way (Konami is likely to do some sort of promoting for the series, since Castlevania is one of its properties) and more seasons to follow after the debut of this first one. The series is getting a lot of traction with its fan base, which means its popularity will definitely carry for some time to come.
Who knows? This might even generate enough interest for Konami to bring back some classic Castlevania games for us to enjoy again. Fingers crossed!


The Castlevania animated series will debut on Netflix starting on July 7th.

Netflix’s ‘Castlevania’ Series Casts ‘The Hobbit’ Star Richard Armitage, a ‘Preacher’ Actor, and More




Producer Adi Shankar, the guy responsible for bootleg short films like the R-rated Power/Rangers and Venom: Truth in Journalism, has been hyping his upcoming animated television adaptation of the popular Nintendo video game Castlevania for a while now, and when the teaser trailer was released last month, fans finally got a taste of what he was talking about.
Now, in a new video, Shankar and actor Graham McTavish (whom you may recognize from his role as The Saint of Killers on AMC’s Preacher) have announced the major Castlevania cast members – including McTavish himself, who’s voicing Dracula, and The Hobbit trilogy star Richard Armitage, who’s voicing the vampire hunter Trevor Belmont.

Based on the iconic video game series that began in 1986, Castlevania follows the adventures of the Belmont clan as they attempt to save Eastern Europe by taking down the diabolical vampire known as Dracula.

Take a look at the video (via ComingSoon) announcing the show’s cast:

James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) will play Dracula’s son, who rebels against his father and takes the name “Alucard” – which is “Dracula” in reverse – to represent how he stands at odds with his vampiric patriarch’s evil plans. Alejandra Reynoso (G.I. Joe: Renegades) has been cast as Sypha Belnades, a powerful mystic who battles against Dracula’s forces. Emily Swallow (Supernatural) will play Lisa Tepes, Alucard’s mother and Dracula’s second wife. Her fate is supremely important to the motivations of the game’s antagonist, and her level of importance will presumably carry over on the show as well. Matt Frewer (Max Headroom, Orphan Black) is playing someone known as The Bishop, and Tony Amendola (Annabelle) will provide the voice of The Elder, who may be a member of an organization of knights referred to as the Brotherhood of Light.
Executive producer Warren Ellis, who’s best known for his work writing comics like Transmetropolitan and his runs on Marvel titles like Iron Man and Astonishing X-Men, also wrote all four scripts for the first season’s episodes.
Shankar has previously said that the show will has a Game of Thrones vibe to it, and he has some major confidence that it’s going to deliver in a big way:

“I’m personally guaranteeing that this is going to be the best fucking video game adaptation ever made to date. I’ve seen it, and it’s fucking amazing.”
We don’t have long to wait until we find out if he’s right about that. The first season of Castlevania begins streaming on Netflix on July 7, 2017.

Netflix’s Castlevania Getting 8 More Episodes













After a well-received first season, Netflix’s Castlevania is returning for a longer season two. The series is based on the iconic video game series of the same name, where the player must storm Dracula’s castle and fight various monsters and traps to defeat the main man himself. The story follows different generations of the Belmont clan, who are tasked with defeating Dracula whenever he rises from the grave – something that happens with alarming regularity.
The Castlevania series has appeared on pretty much every major gaming platform in the last three decades, from the NES through to the PlayStation 3. While Konami has experimented with the series formula throughout the years by adding role-playing elements or sprawling environments, the core gameplay typically remains the same, where players lead the latest Belmont through the castle – while armed with the famous “vampire killer” whip – and overcoming gradually harder enemies.

Netflix’s Castlevania series was a four-episode anime adaptation of Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, and whilst properties based on games usually meet with bad reviews, the show received positive notices for its voice acting, lush animation and fun storyline. Now writer Warren Ellis (via Game Informer) has confirmed on his Twitter account the show is coming back for an eight-episode second season this summer.


One area of complaint with the first season of Castlevania is it felt like a feature-length movie chopped into four episodes – which is close to the truth. The script was first written as a straight-to-DVD back in 2008, but the project went into development hell for nearly a decade. The project was revived in 2015, and Ellis was tasked with taking his original script and breaking it into four parts to form a series. The writer also says the original script was intended to be the first in a trilogy of movies, and the eight-episode second season will allow him to tell the complete story.
There have also been various attempts at making a live-action version of Castlevania, with directors such as Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) and James Wan (The Conjuring) being attached at different points. Progress appears to have stalled on the project, though the popularity of the series may revive interest in both the game series and the movie. That said, it feels like animation is a better fit for the series than a big-budget movie, so hopefully season two will continue the quality of the first.
Castlevania season two doesn’t currently have an air date, but we’ll keep you updated as more information arrives.

'Castlevania' Season 3 Ordered By Netflix





It looks like things are going plenty good for one of Netflix’s top series. A new report has just confirmed Castlevania will be getting a third season.
According to Deadline, the third season will consist of ten episodes. At this time, there is no word on any new casting, but it is expected that writer Warren Ellis will return for the new season. Other creative leads like Adi Shankar, Sam Deats, Kevin Kolde, and Fred Seibert are also expected to continue their work with the hit series.


This new announcement confirms reports which surfaced a few months. An interview done by Digital Spy with Richard Armitage revealed the actor was preparing to do voice work on season three.
"We're about to record a third," Armitage explained back in June. "The second season hasn't been aired yet, but we're about to do a third."

Clearly, Netflix is loving the reception Castlevania is getting. The anime dropped its highly anticipated second season last week, and it has earned rave review from fans. The latest season was ordered on the day Castlevania’s first season dropped, and it seems Netflix was right to place such faith in the show. Its rich world building and complex characters have made Castlevania into one of the best video game adaptations to date, and fans are hoping the show will stick around for quite some time.
Are you excited about this renewal? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!


If you're not familiar with Netflix's take on Castlevania, then you can check out the show’s first season on Netflix as well. The series first premiered to both critical and commercial success, eventually confirming the release of a second season due to its quick popularity. The anime series is based on Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse from 1989, and the game itself is based in 1476 and follows as a hunter known as Trevor Belmont as he tries to take down Dracula, who's become a vampire lording over much of Europe.
The synopsis for Netflix's Castlevania reads as such: "Inspired by the classic video game series, 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. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar."

Netflix's animated Castlevania series returns for Season 3

UPDATE: The man from Netflix, he says no.









UPDATE 27/11/19: Netflix has now removed its tweet listing Castlevania's season three release date, while the series' director has poured cold water on the new episodes being finished in time for next month. (And, you'd think, he would know.)


"Hah, that's news to me and would certainly be scary," Samuel Deats told GoNintendo, "considering we're still working on the last episode of the season".


We've asked Netflix for an update on what's going on.



ORIGINAL STORY 26/11/19: Netflix's acclaimed animated Castlevania series is set to return for a third season of whip-swinging, vampire-slaying revery next month, and now has an official air date of 1st December.
The streaming service's Castlevania TV series initially launched back in 2017, with its initial four, blood-soaked episodes establishing the tale of a grief-stricken Dracula, hell-bent on vengeance following the murder of his wife by the church, and the people - including disgraced monster hunter Trevor Belmont - determined to stop him.


If you've yet to catch the series, Netflix's first season teaser sets the mood well enough:
