CASTLEVANIA Season Two: Netflix's Animated Series Now Expected To Return Later This Year

Season two of Netflix's animated series Castlevania, inspired by the video games of the same name, has been delayed. Writer Warren Ellis now says the show will return for eight episodes later this year.

Fans of Netflix's Castlevania series will seemingly have to wait a bit longer for season two. Taking to Twitter, writer Warren Ellis informed fans that the sophomore season of the animated series will premiere "sometime later this year." It was originally slated to return to the streaming service this summer, but that no longer appears to be the case.

It's unclear what caused the delay, but Ellis hinted in his tweet that the decision was out of his hands. Unfortunately, we still don't have a specific date other than the vague window he provided, but he did say we'll be given plenty of warning when we do have an official release.

In two additional follow-up tweets, Ellis thanked the cast of Castlevania's Season 2 which is not only bigger but has "many surprises." He also hinted that the latter half of the season - which is now eight episodes (four more than the first season) - made director Samuel Deats cry while reading the scripts and during the recording.



Netflix's Castlevania series is inspired by the classic video games of the same name, although Ellis previously suggested that Season 2 will shift from the source material, embracing the advantage of being on Netflix. The first season of the series focused on vampire hunter Trevor Belmont, the last descendant of the Belmont family, fight to save Eastern Europe from Dracula and his army of otherworldly beasts.

We'll hopefully get a more specific premiere date for Castlevania Season 2 sooner rather than later. Earlier this month, it was revealed by Trevor Belmont voice actor Richard Armitage that a third season is already in the works, but Netflix has yet to make an official comment on that.
