Last Summer, Netflix teamed up with Fred Seibert to create an anime-style, ultra violent adaptation of Konami’s long-running Castlevania franchise. The inaugural season was just four episodes long, but that’s far from the end. A second season was officially announced last year, and we’ve even seen reports that a third season has been greenlit. Even so, we still have no official release date for the second season.
We were originally told we could expect eight more episodes to air this Summer, but there’s been no word since then. Summer has officially kicked off now, and it’s unclear if season 2 will still hit that target. Writer Warren Ellis recently chimed in on the matter on Twitter, stating that eight episodes are still planned for “sometime later this year.” Hopefully it’s sooner rather than later, but if they need a little extra time to polish things off we’ll just have to wait.
FAQ: #CASTLEVANIA season 2 will be 8 episodes long, out sometime later this year. I don’t have the release date yet – these things are decided by people other than me. Lots and lots of great animators are working incredibly hard on it. You'll have plenty of warning of the date. pic.twitter.com/9aZ6S1dD6z
