Netflix has really upped the ante on anime content on the platform, From Ultraman, Kengan Ashura, Godzilla and the might Castlevania, Netflix has acquired some excellent shows and movies. And, to that end, the company has now just announced that we will be getting a fourth and final season of Castlevania. Netflix released a new trailer for the fourth season of Castlevania and from what we can see, it looks to follow the violent and dark tale of the Belmonts. In our review of season 3, we stated that “Castlevania was always a show that really caught the attention of the hardcore geek and nerd. It appealed to the anime crowd as well as the gaming community as the series is based on one of the most celebrated gaming franchises of all time. Castlevania, with its violent action and adult, mature themes quickly rose in popularity to warrant 3 whole seasons.” You can check out the new trailer below.
As you can see, the animation quality has really been taken up a notch. The action looks smoother, fast-paced and more visceral. We also get a look at a new kind of armour that as a Berserk fan, looks eerily similar to the Berserk armour from that acclaimed manga. Not taking anything away from the show, the fact that it’s been influenced by Berserk is a good thing. I mean, we wouldn’t have the Dark Souls franchise if it wasn’t for Berserk. We also get a brief look at Alucard and Issac and how their stories will intersect with the main characters. There’s also a brief tease of the return of Dracula for the final season. We can’t wait for May 13.
This is what Netflix has to say about the fourth and final season of Castlevania, “Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions clash: some attempting to take control, others attempting to bring Dracula back from the dead. Nobody is who they seem, and nobody can be trusted. These are the end times.”. Other reports have also stated that Netflix could continue with the Castlevania anime with a different set of characters set in the same universe. When that will take place has not been announced yet.
