Castlevania Season 3 on Netflix Gets a Premiere Date and a Brand New Poster

There's no trailer just yet, but there is a handsome new poster.

Netflix has recently gotten in the habit of cancelling its shows after just two seasons, but the animated Castlevania adaptation netted a season 3 renewal before the second was even out. Today Netflix finally announced a premiere date for the new season: March 5, 2020.

For now, in lieu of a new trailer, fans will have to content themselves with the season's new poster drawn by series director Samuel Deats.

Netflix isn't giving away any details on what season 3 has in store for Trevor, Alucard, Sypha, and the rest, but is promising "more mystery, murder, mayhem, and vampires than ever." In a strict numerical sense that's probably true; Castlevania's third season will have 10 episodes, nearly doubling the series' 12-episode run to date.

Mike and Nadia found plenty to like about Castlevania's first and second seasons, so hopefully the third will keep things exciting without succumbing to Netflix bloat as a result of its extended season order.

Even though the successful Witcher series is based on the original books, Castlevania undoubtedly helped pave the way for it and other upcoming Netflix video game adaptations. Netflix has announced plans to adapt Cuphead and Dragon's Dogma, and though things have been fairly quiet since initial reports last year, rumors are still swirling regarding a Resident Evil series in development for the streaming network.

Castlevania's producer Adi Shankar is also attached to adaptations of Assassin's Creed, Hyper Light Drifter, and Devil May Cry, though details on all three productions and where they may find homes remain slim.
