Castlevania, the Netflix series based off of Konami’s popular video game franchise, aired its first season last year, and everyone loved it, with the only negative reception being that the four-episode arc was just a little bit too short. Luckily, on the same day that the episodes dropped, the show was renewed for a second season that would include an expanded eight episode arc – thank goodness.
If the news of the upcoming second season wasn’t enough, the main voice actor in the animated series, Richard Armitage, has confirmed via Digital Spy that he and the other actors are about to start recording for a third season of the show. Armitage revealed some more exciting information about the upcoming second season, specifically about his character, Trevor Belmont:
“The son of Dracula [Adrian Tepes, voiced by James Callis] and my character get much more collaborative; I think that’s one of the most exciting things, they start to really work together. I love my character in Castlevania… he’s this anti-heroic, drunk, slightly foul-mouthed, irritable git!”
Armitage also talks about how he would love to see a live-action version of Castlevania one day: “I feel like it would make the most brilliant live-action piece. It’s slightly anarchic and humorous – we don’t often see vampire heroics in that vein. One day, maybe.”
Season 2 of Castlevania is set to premiere sometime this summer on Netflix.
