Netflix just launched its Castlevania series, headed by Adi Shankar, and the streaming giant is already on board for a follow up. When asked by Cinema Runner if there’s anything from the Konami series he wasn’t able to explore in Season 1, Shankar revealed that Season 2 has already been greenlit.
“Well, let’s remember that this is just season one,” Shankar said. “And not only has season two already been greenlit, but the episode order has been doubled to eight episodes. So the chapter definitely hasn’t fully closed on this story.”
Castlevania’s first season only runs four episodes, with 30 minutes devoted to each one. Needless to say it is a quick binge, but even in the limited amount of time its allotted the world and its characters flourish.
The season ends on a note that clearly sets up the main arc for the show’s second run. With eight episodes, it’ll be interesting to see how the scope of things are broadened this time around.
While fans are waiting for Castlevania Season 2, Adi Shankar will also be hard at work on an Assassin’s Creed anime. Presently there’s no word on whether it’ll be a Netflix production.
