Castlevania Season 3 has been greenlit by Netflix and now is in production based on a tweet by producer Adi Shankar, who just posted the news right on Halloween.

He thanked a few people who helped sway the decision to create the next animated series for Netflix’s streaming program.
Castlevania is one of the rare and few pieces of media based completely on a video game that’s been adopted by mainstream streaming services. The series first premiered on Netflix on July 7, 2017. Season 2 then debuted on October 26, 2018. And Season 3 is now confirmed and in production. Season 1 was the shortest with only four episodes since it was a “pilot” season, with the next season doubled in episodes. Season 3 will have ten videos planned.
Shankar has been a producer for shorts like The Punisher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism, James Bond: In Service of Nothing, and Dredd (2012).
He’s working with Warren Ellis, who wrote all 12 episodes of Castlevania and worked on animated series for comic characters like Iron Man, x-men, Blade, and Wolverine. Sam Deats, the director for Castlevania, has found his breakout work in this very series.
Powerhouse Animation is working alongside them and has produced shorts such as Darksiders 2, Starhawk, Epic Micky 2, Red Vs. Blue, and various other animated episodes.
Castlevania Seasons 1 and 2 are available right now on Netflix. Season 3 has now been greenlit and will be hitting your streaming device of choice soon enough.
