Netflix's Castlevania Series Teased, It Has Bats My Dudes

And a castle.


A poster for the Netflix series based on Castlevania has been released. It was posted on Facebook by producer Adi Shakar and features pretty much everything you'd expect from Castlevania: a giant gothic castle, a blood red moon, and plenty of bats.

Shankar didn't provide much information on the series other than it "drops 2017 on Netflix." The Castlevania Netflix series is being written by Warren Ellis, who is responsible for multiple acclaimed comic series including Transmetropolitan.

"Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself," an official description reads.

"The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert, and Adi Shankar."

The last major Castlevania title to be released was Lords of Shadow 2, which came out close to three years ago. Koji Igarashi--who reinvented the series with its most acclaimed entry, Symphony of the Night--is developing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, a spiritual successor.
