As you might have heard, a Castlevania TV series is currently being developed for Netflix. The series is expected to be released later this year and thanks to a recent post by its showrunner Adi Shankar (via Polygon), what looks like the official poster for the upcoming series has been revealed.
As expected given the nature of the original video game series, the poster for the TV series is equally as dark, if not darker. For those who have played the games, there’s a good chance that you’ll also recognize the castle in the poster from the original Castlevania or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (just in case you were wondering why it looks so familiar).
Unfortunately apart from revealing the poster for the series, Shankar did not talk much about what we can expect, save to reaffirm that the series will be debuting in 2017. At the moment what we do know is that Warren Ellis will be the one writing the series, and there is also a good chance that Fred Seibert’s studio, Frederator, will be working on the show as well.
This is due to the fact that they currently own the rights to the franchise, and that back in December 2016 Seibert teased that they were working on a project for one of the most famous video games in the world, which many had speculated to be Mario back then.
