The adult anime series Castlevania, based on the popular video games, has been ordered for a second season by Netflix.
Netflix increased the episode order from four in its first season to eight for season two. Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is an animated show written by the best-selling author and comic book legend Warren Ellis. It 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.
“Castlevania has been a world icon for 30 years,” said Fred Seibert, the chief creative officer of WOW! Unlimited Media and CEO of Frederator Networks and Frederator Studios. “WOW! and Frederator are honored to have the privilege of bringing it to life as an entertainment series that will continue its story for years to come.”
