The news that Castlevania is finishing season 4 doesn’t come as too much of a surprise, though that’s probably little consolation for viewers. Creator Warren Ellis was accused of sexual misconduct by numerous girls in June 2020 and would not have experienced any more engagement using Castlevania past his previously finished work on season 4. It’s possible Netflix discovered it neater to finish the series all together, although not saying goodbye to its world thanks to this possible new show.
Fortunately, there are still ten episodes of Castlevania to proceed. The season 4 teaser makes it seem like the new episodes will provide a fitting conclusion for the show. It’s also exciting to learn season 4 will release relatively soon, though it does mean audiences have significantly less time to come to terms with the Castlevania ending. Hopefully, more information about the potential other series set in the universe comes out soon. This could help reduce the sting of Castlevania’s cancellation.
