A bigger war is brewing.
'Castlevania' is enjoying a constant rise in popularity, season after season.
The Netflix Original horror anime series based on the popular videogame franchise of the same name is among the best anime offers on the platform, with an exceptional English dub and praise-worthy plots.
After three highly successful seasons, let us see if the anime series will be returning for more.
'Castlevania' is officially returning for season 4, Netflix confirmed!
The renewal came in March 2020, barely a month since season 3 was released.
Castlevania is undeniably among the most popular anime titles on the platform, and even the creator himself can not help but admit that this caused them to get season 3 renewal back then.
Creator Warren Ellis wrote about the show's popularity in a blog, saying: “season 3’s popularity was an order of magnitude over that of season 2, and season 2 was popular enough to get us season 3.”
Ellis added that shows often exhibit "little attrition in the third season," so it was quite "unusual" when they see a significant increase in the audience for season 3.
Netflix is yet to announce a release date for the fourth season of 'Castlevania'.
The anime series often takes long gaps between seasons, so it's kinda hard to guess when season 4 is coming, especially with the global situation.
"So we’re on for season 4. We don’t expect too much of a covid-related delay," Ellis wrote.
'Castlevania' premiered on Netflix on July 7th, 2017, followed by season 2 which aired on October 26th, 2018, and season 3 on March 5th, 2020.
Following the pattern, there's a chance for season 4 to drop between June and August 2021, that is, if they manage to ensue with production despite the pandemic.
Season 3 ended with a lot of events that could potentially set up season 4.
First, there's an impending doom after Hector falls into the trap of the Council of Sisters.
After getting tricked by Lenore into wearing a slave-ring, Hector is now under the control of the Council of Sisters, who are nefariously planning to expand their territory 800 miles east towards Braila.
To achieve this plan, Hector will be forced to start forging a new army of night creatures.
Isaac and his army, Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belnades, could be the only possible force to stop them from their plans.
Will they succeed?
Speaking of Isaac, he still sees it as his responsibility to carry out Dracula's wish despite the death of his master.
He's on a quest to end humanity and ultimately kill Hector for his betrayal.
After amassing a huge legion, he's now on his way to Styria. He's determined to kill Hector and must face the Council of Sisters to do that.
There's also a possibility of Trevor and Sypha fighting Alucard in the upcoming season. This could happen if the two return to Dracula’s castle to seek out Alucard, whose isolation breeds evil in his heart as time goes.
Our favorite characters are returning for season 4. They are Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, Alucard, Hector, Isaac, Lenore, Carmilla, Morana, Striga, and Saint Germain.
We'll have to wait for a couple of months before seeing the official trailer for 'Castlevania' season 4.
So just like what we always do, we will be dropping the season 3 trailer for you to enjoy in the meantime.
'Castlevania' is available for streaming on Netflix.
