Castlevania Sequel Series Shows Off First Trailer For Netflix

Castlevania Sequel Series Shows Off First Trailer For Netflix

Netflix is sinking its teeth into something bloody, as the already confirmed Castlevania sequel just dropped its first trailer. Netflix's animated Castlevania ran from 2017 to 2021, and while most fans agreed it bowed out too soon, we're heading back to this wicked world of vampires and their hunters. The Belmont clan are back in a big way.

Castlevania ended with Dracula and Death defeated, while the survivors set up shop at Dracula's castle. Sypha revealed that she's pregnant with Trevor's child, and if you've played the games, you'll know the complicated Belmont lineage means the bloodline doesn't end here. Step into the picture Richter Belmont for Castlevania: Nocturne.

 - What Is Castlevania: Nocturne About?

Netflix's Geeked Weekend gave us a first look at Castlevania: Nocturne, which didn't give much away. Mainly showing Richter from behind, there are some ominous voices playing over the background, but we're left wondering about the synopsis of the series. First appearing in Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, Richter Belmont is the distant grandson of Sypha and Trevor - which neatly ties the two cartoons together. 

 

Remembering that the OG Castlevania series mainly told the events of the Trevor-heavy Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse from 1989, it's likely that Nocturne will retell Rondo of Blood. The game followed Richter as he went looking for his kidnapped love, Annette. While going around Dracula's castle, he finds Maria Renard - who is also a distant relative of the Belmonts.

Remembering that Richter and Maria teamed up with Alucard in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, the long-haired Castlevania lothario could return for Nocturne. Finally, given that the ending of Castlevania confirmed Dracula was back from the dead, the franchise's big bad could pop by. Then again, Vlad had a happy ending with Lisa and it would be a shame to ruin it.

Castlevania: Nocturne Release Date

After allegations were made against Castlevania series creator Warren Ellis, Clive Bradley is credited as creator and writer, while Kevin Kolde will serve as Castlevania: Nocturne's showrunner. At the time of writing, there's no confirmed release date for Nocturne, but now that it's officially in production, expect to find out more soon.

If we were to guess, we'd imagine seeing Castlevania: Nocturne before the end of 2023. Given that the first series ran for four seasons and 32 episodes, there are hopes that Nocturne could run for just as long. We've been told Castlevania was the jumping-off point for an expanded world, and by the looks of it, Netflix is far from closing the coffin yet.
