Castlevania is coming to an end at Netflix: The anime series will conclude with the upcoming fourth season, premiering Thursday, May 13, the streamer announced on Friday. However, our sister site Deadline reports that Netflix is eyeing a new series set in the same universe, featuring a new cast of characters.
Inspired by the classic video game, Castlevania is described as “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 Tepes himself.”
