Now Playing: Castlevania Netflix Teaser - Vengeance

Netflix announced the series earlier this year and said that it was due out sometime in 2017. Today's trailer confirms the show will debut on July 7.

Our only look at the series before today came in the form of a cool-looking poster that features a giant castle basking in the light of a red moon. Bats were also involved.

Castlevania is produced by Adi Shakar and written by Warren Ellis, the famed comic writer behind series like 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.
