Prior the release of Castlevania Season 2 this Summer, it’s learned that Netflix has given Season 3 the go ahead.
Richard Armitage, who voices Trevor Belmont in the series, filled in Digital Spy that production on the third season will start soon.
“We’re about to record a third [season]” Armitage offered. “The second season hasn’t been aired yet, but we’re about to do a third.”
The first season of the Castlevania animated series saw only four episodes air, but they were well-received by fans who are now highly anticipating the release of Season 2.
“The son of Dracula [Adrian Tepes, voiced by James Callis] and my character get much more collaborative,”Armitage teased for Season 2. “I think that’s one of the most exciting things, they start to really work together.”
With the Castlevania animated series being so popular, Armitage says he wouldn’t mind a live-action movie.
“I love my character in Castlevania… he’s this anti-heroic, drunk, slightly foul-mouthed, irritable git!” Armitage said. “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.”
Castlevania Season 1 is currently streaming on Netflix.
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.
