Update: Bloody Disgusting's John Squires reports that Netflix has told him Castlevania Season 3 won't be premiering on Dec. 1. The Nordic account reportedly made a mistake, and its not planned for the US or anywhere on the first of the month.
Just checked in with Netflix. The Netflix Nordic Twitter account made a mistake this morning. #Castlevania Season 3 is *not* dropping on Netflix on December 1st.- John Squires (@FreddyInSpace) November 26, 2019
Not in the US, not anywhere. No date available yet.
Though we haven't received response from Netflix yet, Netflix Nordic has also deleted the tweet, indicating it's pretty likely that Castlevania's listing was an error. We've updated the headline accordingly, and you can find the original story below.
Looks like this holiday weekend might have some vampire hunting on the docket. Castlevania's third season will debut on Netflix very soon, according to a post from Netflix Nordic.
The official account tweeted out a list of upcoming titles coming to Netflix over the next week, including Scorcese's The Irishman and classic musical Grease. But among the list, under Dec. 1, was one conspicuous entry: Castlevania, season three.
I mean, these titles speak for themselves, right?- Netflix Nordic (@NetflixNordic) November 25, 2019
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Merry Happy Whatever
Castlevania: Season 3
Men in Black II
13 Going on 30
This might not be dead-on, as past Netflix leaks have been off by a handful of days. A deleted post from Netflix hinted at a Dec. 17 release, but Henry Cavill's Geralt will actually be hitting Netflix in the US on Dec. 20. We've reached out to Netflix for confirmation, as well as whether the premiere date may vary across regions.
But if it is true, this season of Castlevania has had surprisingly little fanfare. Though it was renewed for a third season before the second even aired, we haven't seen or heard much about it since the conclusion of Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard's quest. Still, the second season was fantastic overall and left on a surprisingly strong note, teasing what could be coming next. It's not much of a stretch to say the animated Castlevania series is one of the best video game adaptations in recent memory, up there with Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat. Hopefully its third season can keep it up, and it looks like we may not have to wait long to see if it does.
