Netflix Quickly Announces Castlevania: Nocturne Season 2

Netflix has quickly announced a Season 2 for Castlevania: Nocturne which follows the series debuting only a week ago on the streaming service.

The news is rather surprising as again the series only debuted a week ago and the show is coming with controversy as the Rotten Tomatoes Audience Score is only at 45% as fans hate it.

However, apparently, a lot of people watched the show in its first week (the first Castlevania has four seasons), otherwise, why would Netflix be so quick to greenlight a Season 2?

Netflix released an announcement video with the news that Season 2 is actually already in production.

Castlevania: Nocturne will return for a Season 2. The project is currently in production,” confirms the video description.

With Castlevania: Nocturne Season 2 already in production, it makes you wonder if they went into production prior to the release of Season 1. Since the first Castlevania series is so well-liked by fans, maybe Netflix greenlit Season 2 ahead of time and didn’t account for the negative reception to Season 2?

Anyway, Castlevania: Nocturne Season 2 is happening.

Why the controversy?

Regarding the controversy, similar to the route Kevin Smith went with Netflix’s He-Man, apparently Castlevania: Nocturne goes the woke route and also includes a political-themed nature. Fans just want vampire and vampire hunters, not an agenda.

“It was ok. The ending was good enough to want to watch part 2. I’m just not sure why the politics of our era feel force fed, especially when compared to previous seasons,” states a fan on Rotten Tomatoes. “They had two different writers, maybe that’s why. And the last guy wrote comics for DC & Marvel. Anyway, I’m just getting tired of politics hemorrhaging its ideology into any crevice it can find. Luckily a long line of flops seems to be killing this trend, so hopefully part two is better.”
