Castlevania an adult animated action horror drama series on Netflix. Based on a Japanese video game of the same name by Konami, the last three seasons are based on the characters in the game. As new as it sounds, the series is fresh and unique in its own way. The creator of the show is Warren Ellis and the directors are Sam Deats, Adam Deats and Spencer Wan. Castlevania initially planned as a film in 2007, released as a series after Adi Shankar boarded. Rotten Tomatoes rated the last season an 8.64 out of a 10. The third season ended with a cliffhanger. Ever since fans are waiting for the fourth season to arrive.
There have been long gaps between the seasons of the show. However, this hasn’t lessened the fanbase at all. With that being said, the viewership of season 3 passed the viewership of season 2. This definitely gives them a reason to renew the outstanding anime series. Netflix renewed Castlevania for a fourth season on 27th March 2020.
Season one and season two had a 15-month long gap and seasons two and three had a 16 month one. Therefore it is likely that season 4 will release in 2021 summer. Although the pandemic might have delayed the production of Castlevania Season 4. After that, Adi Shankar working on other projects like Devil May Cry might become an obstacle.
Season 3 gave plenty of options to continue for a season 4.
