Netflix's Castlevania Season 4 Images Show A World On The Edge

Netflix delivers new images ahead of Castlevania's final season, which debuts next week.

Comments

Hot on the heels of their Castlevania Season 4 trailer, Netflix has released a collection of new images for the gothic action-horror show ahead of its release next week.

The images show us most of the show's principal characters, from Trevor and Sypha getting ready to fight, to series antagonist Carmilla wielding a blood-red blade. Plot details are light. Here's the synopsis offered up by Netfilx:

"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."

The series is based very roughly on the plot of 1989 Nintendo Entertainment System game Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse. It follows Trevor Belmont and his vampire-killing whip as he befriends young sorcerer Sypha and Dracula's wayward son Alucard. The trio works with them to defeat the legendary vampire in his teleporting castle. With the big man out of the way, vampires like Carmilla and other powerful magic users like Isaac have their own designs on seizing power.

Castlevania is hitting just a couple weeks after Netflix's bloody anime Yasuke, telling an (almost entiretly) fictionalized version of the historical figure's life. Castlevania Season 4 was written by Warren Ellis before the sexual misconduct accusations came out against him last summer. As a result of Ellis' departure, Netflix has decided to end the series with Season 4, but has a spin-off in pre-production.

Castlevania Season 4 brings the series to an end when it hits Netflix on May 13.
