Castlevania is Netflix’s animation TV series based on Konami’s Japanese video game series of the same name. Followed by Beastars, Devilman Crybaby, and Dorohedoro, Castlevania is just another example of how popular the animated series genre is on Netflix.
However, among all others, Castlevania is the one that’s most popular on the platform and is creating an intense buzz for the upcoming season.
What release date has Netflix confirmed for Castlevania season 4?
The release date of Castlevania season 4 will follow the pattern similar to its previous seasons. The series, which was originally planned as a movie in 2007, and dumped, finally saw its debut as a TV series on Netflix in 2017.
Created by Warren Ellis and developed by Adi Shankar, Castlevania season 1 premiered on Netflix on July 7, 2017. It was then followed by season 2 on October 26, 2018, and season 3 on March 5, 2020.

So, combining that sloth speed of creators with the pandemic delays, we predict that your wait is not ending until fall 2021.
