It took Netflix two years to release what is the spin-off sequel to Castlevania, one of its best fantasy series in recent years. And just nine days after its release, Castlevania: Nocturne has been renewed for a second season.
The spin-off series of the original has managed to reach the Top 10 most watched English language shows in just five days of life. The news was given by the official Netflix account itself along with a short teaser that hints at the adventures to come for Richter Belmont and company as they continue their fight against the Vampire Messiah. You can see it above these lines.
Castlevania: Nocturne begins 300 years after the events of Castlevania, leaving behind Trevor and Sypha to follow Ritcher as he becomes the last member of the legendary Belmont clan. As the French Revolution unfolds around him, the counter-revolutionary aristocracy forges an unholy alliance with the vampire Erzsebet Báthory, a being who claims she would devour the sun and bring about eternal night.
Richter and María Renard’s struggle for the resistance changes forever when the sorceress Annette arrives from the Caribbean in search of the vampire hunter to lead the charge against the bloodsucking beasts and save not only the people of France but the entire world.
Renewal for Season 2
The hopes of its creator, Clive Bradley, are to make many more seasons of this sequel spin-off, as he has revealed in an interview with Collider when talking about possible new characters that could appear as the series progresses:
We are excited to be able to bring you more of Castlevania: Nocturne and the next chapter in the life of Richter Belmont. Season 1 is setting the stage for more things, but it still delivers almost everything we love about the franchise.
The first season of Castlevania: Nocturne, consisting of eight episodes, can now be enjoyed in full on Netflix.
