The Castlevania animated series returns to Netflix for a new project, Castlevania: Nocturne, the streaming service announced on Friday during the Geeked Week event. A release date for more Castlevania animation has not been announced, and Netflix is only confirming that Nocturne was now in production.
The new Castlevania series will focus on Richter Belmont, the star of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the night† If true to the video game canon, it would be centuries after the existing Castlevania animated series. The previous Castlevania series focused on Trevor Belmont and his allies Sypha Belnades and Alucard.
Castlevania: Nocturne is led by showrunner Kevin Kolde, who contributed to the previous Castlevania series streaming on Netflix from 2017 to 2021, and creator/writer Clive Bradley. Project 51 Productions and Powerhouse Animation also return for Nocturne†
Warren Ellis, writer and executive producer of the original Castlevania series, will not return to the franchise after a series of misconduct allegations against him.
