Netflix has ordered a second season of Castlevania, its new animated series based on the popular video game series. In addition, the network has increased the episode order from four in its first season to eight for the second season.

I watched the first season over the weekend and loved it. Dark, gory, but with some good humour and some fantastic creatures designs. It definitely shows that you can make a good adaptation of a video game. However, there were only four episodes so it was gone in a flash. I’m glad the second season will be longer.

Inspired by the classic video game series from Japan’s Konami, Castlevania is an animated project written by best-selling author and comic book legend Warren Ellis.

Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy that follows the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself.

The cast features the voice talents of Graham McTavish (The Hobbit, Outlander and Preacher) as Dracula, Richard Armitage (The Hobbit trilogy) as Trevor Belmont, James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as Alucard, Emily Swallow (Supernatural) as Lisa, Matt Frewer (Orphan Black) as The Bishop, Tony Amendola (Annabelle) as The Elder and Alejandra Reynoso (G.I. Joe: Renegades) as Sypha Belnades.

“Castlevania has been a world icon for 30 years. WOW! and Frederator are honored to have the privilege of bringing it to life as an entertainment series that will continue its story for years to come,” added Fred Seibert, Chief Creative Officer of WOW! Unlimited Media and CEO of Frederator Networks and Frederator Studios.

Castlevania is executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Adi Shankar and Fred Seibert. Production services are provided by Austin, Texas based Powerhouse Animation with Brad Graeber supervising producer, Jason Williams as producer, and Sam Deats as director.
