The third season of the Netflix series Castlevania around monster hunter Trevor, magician Sypha and Dracula's son Alucard was more popular than the creators had previously imagined. A fourth season is already in the works.
Castlevania, the animated Netflix implementation of the iconic game series, was more popular than ever in its third season. Above all, the makers of the series had never imagined that before. That emphasizes author and producer Warren Ellis in his private blog – Season 3 ran "shockingly good". Monster hunters Trevor and Sypha's new adventures have been in the Netflix Top 10 in over 40 countries for a week or two. "Not animation, not TV, but in the top 10 of all Netflix content. "
Season 4 already in progress, no delay from Corona
Ellis suspects that there should be no delays from the corona pandemic, but asks for patience. Or in his words: "If the guy who constantly tags me with 'SEASON 4 NOW' on Instagram could piss off, I would appreciate that."
More adult animation from English?
The Castlevania author also emphasizes what the popularity of Castlevania means to him. That a niche topic like "Four seasons of English-language, adult, drama animation around vampires, moral philosophy and toilet paper" apparently appeals to millions of people around the world, is a sign for him that there is an undeveloped market here. "I would be happy if it opened the door for more adult dramas in English-language animation."
What the fourth season is about is currently still in the stars. However, the season three finale left some storylines open, giving a rough direction of what to expect from the vampire forces, the adventure duo Trevor and Sypha, and Dracula's heirs Alucard.
