So…#CastlevaniaNetflix Season 2 was certainly a journey. Some great moments throughout (a few of which were very unexpected); and some interesting twists on older characters. Big round of applause to both cast and crew for a job well done!

In response to the overwhelming positive reaction to the first season, season 2 of the series not only doubles the amount of episodes , but also introduces plenty of new characters with their own agendas. In addition, fans have once again been reunited with the trio of Trevor, Alucard, and Sypha who, with the increase in episodes, the show has more time to explore as they set out on their own adventures.
If you are unfamiliar, the anime series is based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse from 1989. That game and the show is based in 1476 and follows a hunter named Trevor Belmont as he tries to take down Dracula, who’s become a vampire lording over much of Europe.
The synopsis for Netflix’s Castlevania reads as such:
Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.
