While chances are we won't be seeing it soon, Netflix has revealed the first details of its next Castlevania anime series on the final day of Geeked Week. The latest series recently ended after Season 4, but the franchise has plenty of stories to tell.

The show's creative team--executive producer Kevin Kolde, director Sam Deats, and assistant director Adam Deats--revealed that they are hard at work on the next Castlevania show and that it would be set in 1792 France against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

Unlike the previous Castlevania, this new tale won't focus on Trevor Belmont. Instead, the main characters will be his ancestor Richter Belmont, along with Maria Renard.

There's no word yet on when to expect the series and no footage was revealed. The next chapter of Castlevania is in the works now.

Plenty of news has been revealed during Netflix Geeked Week. If you haven't yet, check out new clips from upcoming animated series based on Arcane and Cuphead, as well as a quick look at the streaming service's Splinter Cell anime.
