Last year, Netflix and Frederator teamed up on an ambitious project: an ultra-violent, anime-styled adaptation of Castlevania. The inaugural season was just four episodes long, but fans of the beloved Konami series loved it, prompting Netflix to greenlight a second season (with eight episodes), set to release in October. We’ve even heard reports that a third season is already approved.
On top of that, the show’s popularity has also convinced Netflix to take it beyond just streaming. Viz Media has taken to Twitter to announce plans for a physical release. Unfortunately, details are scarce, and Viz is only stating that the show will be available on “home video.” The exact format (DVD? Blu-ray?), release date, and price remain under wraps for now, but Viz will be sharing more info “soon.”
