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.
