The anime community cannot keep calm for, after blowing them away with ‘Castlevania’ Season 3, Netflix recently announced its renewal without giving away the dates for ‘Castlevania’ Season 4.
Netflix announced the renewal of ‘Castlevania’
Season 3 of this adaptation of a Japanese video game had enough plot lines on cliffhangers, so it was not much of a surprise that the show was being renewed. Nevertheless, anime fans cannot wait to sink in their teeth into ‘Castlevania’ Season 4.
On March 27, the renewal was confirmed via the official NX Twitter account:
“Sir Mirror has some ‘Castlevania’ news … Season four is coming”.
Before this, the creator and writer, Warren Ellis, posted on his official website,
“I can’t actually tell you all the exact numbers”, Ellis wrote, “What I can say is that season 3’s popularity was an order of magnitude over that of season 2, and season 2 was popular enough to get us season 3. It turns out season 3 did, really, shockingly well”.
What happened in season 3: The war between humans and vampires
‘Castlevania’ is a story of a battle between humans and vampires. What remains a mystery is who would win it? Season 3 revealed Hector as the pet of two vampire sisters, while Alucard was betrayed by two humans.
The viewers saw Saint Germain looking at the silhouette of a female. He was so desperate to find her out that he went into the infinite corridor and instructed Trevor and Sypha to close the corridor.
Furthermore, Lisa and Dracula were seen in hell in the end.
When will ‘Castlevania’ Season 4 come out?
Given the time of the pandemic, it is obvious that things are going to take a little more time than usual. However, it should be noted that the first two seasons came out 15 months apart and the third one 16 months later.
Considering how intricate the animation is in the series, ‘Castlevania’ Season 4 is going to come out most probably during the latter half of 2021.
Furthermore, the executive producer Adi Shankar is busy with ‘Devil May Cry’s’ TV adaptation. This one again is a video game. So, the production of ‘Castlevania’ Season 4 is likely to take its own sweet time.
What is likely to happen in ‘Castlevania’ Season 4?
The fourth season might bring up a war between the humans and vampires, with Dracula furious at humans for betraying his son Alucard.
Also, the season will most likely deal with the invasion of land by the council of sisters. On the other hand, Alucard will be reaching his vampire genes and will eventually take over the darkness.
‘Castlevania’ Season 4 will be exploring all the parallel storylines that the earlier seasons have dabbled in.
