Read more to find out the inside details about season 4 and what might happen in the season ahead!
What went down in season 3?
Castlevania Season 3 highlights are probably the most fierce and exceptional. The season has battle scenes that will drive you crazy. These battle scenes involve the quest of the three legendary heroes – Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, and Alucard. This chivalrous trio can be seen using tactical weapons and some amazing skills. This season has also stirred up some controversies by including sex scenes that were shocking to some viewers. In season 3, sex is something that is considered a stand-in for power, an instrument used to gain control, and as a physical sign of growing intimacy between the characters. There’s no better display of this than during the season’s penultimate episode, which also features some of the best edits from the show.
Season 3 of ‘Castlevania’, in many ways, can be deemed as the best of the series up until now. The season also brought fresh stories, characters, and allowed the audience to take a dip further into the reality of the universe of ‘Castlevania’. Another interesting twist is seen in Alucard’s character. Unlike the previous seasons, his story gradually develops from a man with deplorable circumstances and someone who is drowning in treachery, to that of a beast towards the end of season 3. Alucard is, however, not the only protagonist who turns into a grey character due to utter misery and a state of solemnness.
Will the great sacrifice of Dracula have any effect on season 4?
Nearing the end of the prior season, Lisa and Dracula were seen in hell. This is after the death of Dracula, who had been assassinated by his son Alucard. Now, even though Dracula has always been seen as the antagonist in the series, some fans have hinted at possible protagonist traits in Dracula.
Alucard wanted to have a final positive memory of his father which is why he lets Dracula sacrifice himself to death. He also states “This is history’s longest suicide note”. This can mean that he granted his father a final wish. Alucard also knew that his bloodline was cursed, therefore, there was no reason for his father to stick around as he would never meet his grandchildren.
After all of this happening in the previous season, fans expect season 4 to have a breath of fresh air and a new plot that will spin an even more mighty tale of bloodshed. However, there have been speculations that Dracula might return in ‘Castlevania’ Season 4. Who knows? We might be in for a dangerous twist!
When is season 4 coming out?
Netflix‘s NX Twitter account had confirmed in a tweet that ‘Castlevania’ is renewed for a fourth season and is expected to be released in summer 2021. The excitement amongst the followers was bumped up due to a short video that was released alongside a tweet, which highlighted the Dracula loyalist and devil
forge-master, Isaac, looking into his magic mirror. The series has been adapted from the story of a popular video game. The first two seasons of ‘Castlevania’ followed the story of the 1989 NES game ‘Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse’, the third season obtained its sources from the 2005 title ‘Castlevania’: Curse of Darkness’, which was released for the PS2 and original Xbox formats only. Although fans are looking forward to the release of the next season, given the current situation it is unlikely to release before the summer of 2021.
Let’s just hope it shows up soon because the last season has left all of our minds on fire. What do you think would happen in the next season? Comment below to let us know!
