If you did not know, Castlevania is one of the biggest series on Netflix, and all eyes are on the franchise for what comes next. After debuting a solid third season, Castlevania is hoping to blow everyone away with its fourth and final season. Not long ago, it was announced the anime's finale would drop this month to usher in May, and the first trailer for season four dropped to hype audiences up even more.
Not long ago, Netflix posted its first trailer for season four of Castlevania. The clip can be found above as it shows our favorite heroes preparing for their last stand against Dracula, and the battle will be a bloody one.
For those curious about Castlevania, the show is based on the iconic video game series by Konami. Its supernatural aesthetic inspired writer Warren Ellis to elevate the story to a new level with Netflix on board. As for the show, the series has confirmed season four will go public on May 13, 2021. The season will be the last, but statements from the crew of Castlevania tease there are spin-off series being pitched at large. This legacy is hardly surprising given how popular the show has been with Netflix audiences. Castlevania helped launch Netflix's catalog of original anime series, and it gave the company confidence in ordering adaptations for Devil May Cry, Assassin's Creed, and more.
If you want to know more about Castlevania's anime run, you can find seasons one through three on Netflix now. The series was developed by Adi Shankar for the streaming service with animation from Powerhouse Animation. You can find the show's official synopsis below:
"A vampire hunter fights to save a besieged city from an army of otherworldly creatures controlled by Dracula. ... Luckily, Trevor Belmont, last survivor of the Belmont clan, a disgraced family known for hunting all kinds of monsters, is still in town and agrees to take the fight to the lord of vampires."
