Netflix Renews ‘Castlevania: Nocturne’ For Season 2

Prepare for another symphony of the night, as Castlevania: Nocturne has been renewed for Season 2 — just one week after the first season debuted. The announcement is hardly surprising, if a little quicker than expected, considering the loose ends that went unaddressed at the end of the show, which also included a grand character reveal.

Sam and Adam Deats are returning to co-direct, with Clive Bradley and Kevin Kolde serving as showrunners once again. Not much else is known about the upcoming animated season, except that it will cover the “next chapter in the rise of Richter Belmont”. A brief, sketch-like teaser was unveiled as part of the update, though no release date or further details were given.

Taking place 300 years after the end of the original, four-season Castlevania series, Castlevania: Nocturne follows Richter Belmont, the last living descendent of Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belnades, as he and his allies seek to prevent the rise of a new Vampire Messiah named Erzsebet Báthory. Unlike Dracula’s grand scheme to annihilate humanity for killing his wife, this new big bad threatens to devour the sun and plunge the world into eternal darkness amidst the political landscape of the French Revolution.
