With how well-received the first season of Castlevania was on Netflix, it wasn’t surprising that the animated series was renewed for a second season. However it seems that even before the second season has been aired, it looks like it might have already been picked up for a third season.
This is according to a report from Digital Spy where apparently Richard Armitage, who voices the character Trevor Belmont, confirmed it by saying, “We’re about to record a third. The second season hasn’t been aired yet, but we’re about to do a third.” Netflix has yet to comment on the show’s renewal so take it with a grain of salt, but at the same time it doesn’t really come as a complete surprise either.
The first season essentially only consisted of four episodes which is pretty short, especially when you consider that each episode barely ran under 30 minutes. This is why many are excited to see what the second season will bring to the table where it will run for 8 episodes. If there is a third season, it is unclear if we’re looking at more episodes, less, or if Netflix plans on keeping it at 8.
Either way we’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime the second season for Castlevania is currently set for a release this coming summer on Netflix.
