It’s a good time to be aCastlevania fan. The second season of Netflix’s anime adaptation of the popular video game will arrive on October 26, with a third season to follow. Netflix recently released a new trailer for the second season, which should tide fans over until the it launches.

The release date for the show’s second season was announced at theLos Angeles Anime Expo and confirmed on theCastlevania Twitter account. We also got a look at what the show has to offer.

Based on the popular video game series of the same name, Castlevaniafollows Trevor Belmont as he attempts to save Europe from Dracula’s wrath. To be fair, Dracula does actually have pretty good reasons to be angry, so he’s not just evil for the sake of being evil, which is always a nice change of pace.

The show’s first season launched with only four episodes, but proved to be a hit for Netflix, which quickly announced a second season of the show, which was later confirmed to be twice as long as the first.

Season 3

Little is known about the show’s third season aside from the fact that it is in the works, as was as confirmed by voice actor Richard Armitage.

“We’re about to record a third,” said the voice of Trevor Belmont. “The second season hasn’t been aired yet, but we’re about to do a third.”

Details regarding the third season are scarce and Netflix has not officially confirmed anything yet. Armitage did give some hints as to what we can expect when the show’s second season drops later this year.

“The son of Dracula [Adrian Tepes, voiced by James Callis] and my character get much more collaborative,” Armitage said. “I think that’s one of the most exciting things, they start to really work together.”

Castlevania

This series marks Castlevania’s first on-screen adaption and proved to be a hit with fans and critics alike, which was a breath of fresh air in a sea of mediocre video game adaptations. Most of those failed projects were live-action films, however, which is an area video games have struggled in since Nintendo’s disastrouslive-action adaptation of Super Mario Bros. in 1993.

Despite the poor reputationof live-action video game movies, Armitage seems excited at the prospect of a live-action version of Castlevania, though nothing of that nature has been confirmed.

“I love my character inCastlevania… he’s this anti-heroic, drunk, slightly foul-mouthed, irritable git,” Armitage said. “I feel like it would make the most brilliant live-action piece. It’s slightly anarchic and humorous we don’t often see vampire heroics in that vein. One day, maybe.”

Updated on July 28 with the second season’s trailer.
