Netflix Renews ‘Castlevania’ for Season Two

Eight New Episodes Ordered

Netflix has ordered a second season of animated series Castlevania, which debuted on Friday. The order is for eight new episodes in season two (versus four in season one).

Inspired by the classic video game series from Japan’s Konami, Castlevania is an animated project written by best-selling author and comic book legend Warren Ellis. Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy that follows the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. The cast features the voice talents of Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Outlander and Preacher) as Dracula, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit trilogy) as Trevor Belmont, James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as Alucard, Emily Swallow (Supernatural) as Lisa, Matt Frewer (Orphan Black) as The Bishop, and Tony Amendola (Annabelle) as The Elder.
