Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of Netflix’s adaptation of Castlevania first releasing. The ultra-violent, anime-styled take on Konami’s classic video game franchise was well received, but it only got four episodes in its initial run. Thankfully, there’s plenty more in store! Season 2 of Castlevania will have eight episodes, double the length of the first season, and now we have an official release date.
Netflix recently held a panel at Anime Expo 2018, and they used that opportunity to announce that Castlevania season 2 will hit Netflix on October 26th. Like last season, comic writer Warren Ellis is in charge of the script. While this isn’t yet officially confirmed, Trevor Belmont voice actor Richard Armitage recently indicated that season 3 is also in the works.
