Just one season of Castlevania is left.
The acclaimed Netflix animated series will be coming to end with its fourth season, which has its premiere date. Take note: Castlevania season 4, 10 episodes in length, will premiere on May 13th. There’s still some good news for fans, though. More on that below.
A teaser promo has also been released for season 4, serving as a slight refresher for where the story is leading: namely, Carmilla’s major plans.

So, yes Castlevania is coming to an end, but it appears that we’re not done exploring this world quite yet. As reported by Deadline, Netflix is looking at launching another animated series also set in the Castlevania universe – this one following new characters.
Castlevania, based on the Japanese video game franchise by Konami, was Netflix’s first original anime series when it launched in 2017. Season one was based on the 1989 game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse; seasons two and three took narrative points from 2005 game Castlevania: Curse of Darkness. The voice cast has included Richard Armitage, James Callis, Graham McTavish, Alejandra Reynoso, Theo James, Jessica Brown Findlay, Bill Nighy, Jason Isaacs, and Lance Reddick, among many others.
Series creator Warren Ellis, who’s been on board as both writer and executive producer, will reportedly not be involved in the upcoming season – and likely won’t be in the new show either – following allegations of sexual misconduct that came to light in 2020. Ellis has denied the allegations.
