The Castlevania Netflix Show Will Premiere On July 7th

There hasn’t been much news about the upcoming Netflix Castlevania animated series as of late. However, it seems that the trend is changing thanks to a Netflix tweet that contained the show’s very first trailer. The animated series will premiere on Netflix on July 7th. We know that the series follows “the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself.” Producer Adi Shankar says that the show is based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse and Shankar has also said in the past that it will have very mature content, explaining that it is “very much Castlevania done in the vein of Game of Thrones”. As for the tweet we mentioned, feel free to check it out down below.

  1. Never played the games, but I’ll give this series a shot. I hope it inspires more game companies to distribute rights for a tv series if this goes well, always wondered what a more modern Zelda cartoon would be like.

    1. King Kalas X3 {Greatness Awaits. This use to be something that awaited those for all consoles. It's sad it's mostly just a PS4 slogan these days. Maybe Nintendo will get back to that greatness with the Switch. Only time will tell.} says:

      Love it or hate it, Game of Thrones does NOT sugarcoat war. Needless violence, rape, & other horrible things are par for the course. As for incest, it happened a lot in medieval times & it’s still a thing today. In that regard, the show is sadly very accurate.

      1. As ‘realistic’ as GOT is, I fail to see how Castlevania needed that GOT ‘touch’. I don’t think that it necessarily fits the series, as dark as the games have gotten. (Obviously I’m in the minority here tho.)
        I guess you could say that I’m a bit disappointed bc I really was looking forward to this and I honestly dislike GOT. :/

  2. I’m so excited. In my opinion Symphony of the Night is the best video game in existence. I am crossing my fingers that Alucard will show up at some point!

    I look forward to seeing this & the live action Death Note series Netflix is producing.
