Netflix announces Castlevania: Nocturne, a spinoff series to the streaming site’s popular Castlevania. The animated series adapted Konami’s video game series of the same name, telling the story of Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, and Alucard Tepes as they face Count Dracula. While video game adaptations are still fighting a bad reputation in the industry, Netflix’s Castlevania managed to achieve both critical and commercial success. All four seasons were received positively and left fans wondering what would be next for Castlevania.
Today a new series titled Castlevania: Nocturne was announced that will follow Trevor and Sypha’s descendant Richter. The series will use characters and elements from the Symphony of Night and Blood of Rondo video games and is expected to be set during the French Revolution. Kevin Kolde, who worked on the previous series, will lead Castlevania: Nocturne as showrunner alongside creator/writer Clive Bradley. Netflix posted a teaser with the announcement, a short video that shows Richter’s back and profile with snippets of dialogue playing over it. Check out the announcement below:
Netflix has not yet announced a release date for Castlevania: Nocturne, but the announcement did share that the series was currently in production. Still, even with so little information about the new series, fans of both the video games and Castlevania are sure to be excited by this first look at Richter Belmont since the series’ first announcement. Castlevania delivered a terrific four seasons authentic to the video games, so expectations for Castlevania: Nocturne will certainly be high.
