The Second Season For 'Castlevania' Comes To Netflix This October

Ollie Barder , Contributor

The second season of 'Castlevania' is released on Netflix later this year.

Following the excellent first season of the Castlevania animated series on Netflix, the second season will be finally released this October.

This series is loosely based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse that was originally released back in 1989 on the NES.

While that game featured four main characters, that of Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belandes, Grant Danasty and Alucard. This animated adaptation has dropped Grant from the cast list.

Even without the full roster of characters, this animated series is fantastically done and also turns the villain of Dracula into a far more complex and sympathetic villain.

The casting is also very well done, as Richard Armitage brings Trevor Belmont to life in a wonderful way.

At the end of the first season, the three main characters finally met and now they need to take on Dracula.

We already know a third season has already been greenlit, but I expect great things from this upcoming second season once it is out later this year.

The second season of Castlevania is released via Netflix on October 26.

Blizzard’s Diablo franchise is getting a series on Netflix

JJ TraversJJ TraversSeptember 22, 2018

The would-be showrunner let the cat out of the bag.

Rumors began circulating several weeks ago that Netflix will be adapting Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo franchise into a TV series. According to reports, Andrew Cosby, screenplay writer for the new Hellboy remake has been tapped as the series showrunner. Cosby has an extensive resume with comic books, (he’s been writing them for nearly 15 years) and he co-founded BOOM! Studios. He’s not a stranger when it comes to screen writing either, having worked on Eureka and Haunted.

Thanks to a now deleted Tweet sent out by Cosby, we know that the rumors were accurate.

I guess I can confirm I am indeed in final talks to write and show-run the new DIABLO animated series for Activision and Netflix. It’s very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.

— Andy Cosby (@andycosby) September 20, 2018

Cosby has since deleted the Tweet, but not before a number of fans saw the exciting news and spread the word. It’s likely he wasn’t supposed to break the news just yet and Netflix/Blizzard more than likely asked him to remove the Tweet. With BlizzCon on the horizon it’s almost a guarantee that Blizzard would want to announce the new series at their own incredibly popular convention, that celebrates the six game franchises the company created, including Diablo.

With the success of Konami bringing Castlevania to Netflix, it’s not surprising that Blizzard and other video game studios may be looking to join in. Castlevania was a huge hit with fans, so much so that it was renewed on the day of its release for an expanded eight episode second season and according to lead voice actor Richard Armitage, a third season has already been greenlit by Netflix.

The Diablo franchise has had a lot of different projects in the works over the last several months. In June of this year Blizzard confirmed a new unannounced project, asking for a skilled Dungeon Artist to help them create something exceptional. In July Blizzard announced a new Diablo four issue comic book mini-series being created in partnership with Titan Comics. And then last month in August Blizzard released a video assuring fans that the franchise is far from dead and that multiple Diablo projects are in the works.

There’s no official word from Netflix or Blizzard on the series at this time, but if I was a betting man I’d put my money on an announcement at BlizzCon.

Richard hat ausf nachfolgenden Artikel hingewiesen, der 'Castlevania 2' (Start: 26.10.18) empfiehlt:



These Are the Must-See Movies and TV Shows Premiering in October
It’s time to get spooky.

It’s Halloween time this month, which not only means we’ve got fresh new content, but that we also have a slew of horror shows and movies releasing. The granddaddy of all Halloween movies is getting the soft reboot/sequel treatment that’s sure to confuse anyone not invested in Michael Myers lore. Before then, however, we’ve got Tom Hardy‘s Venom coming the weekend of New York Comic Con. Will it be a bust immediately given its dropped connections to Spider-Man and the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe? Or will Hardy’s star power result in sold tickets?

Over on the TV side, we’ve got a lot of gems from Netflix, such as Making a Murderer season 2, Daredevil season 3, and a Sabrina The Teenaged Witch reboot we never knew we wanted. Check out the list below, ranging from some of the must-see releases to the more under-the-radar films and TV shows to look forward to in October.


Venom (October 5)

Journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is investigating Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), the notorious and brilliant founder of the Life Foundation. While doing so, one of Drake’s alien experiments latches onto Eddie’s body and merges with him to create Venom — leaving him with superhuman strength and power. The alien also has a consciousness of its own, and it’s up to Brock not to fall for the temptation of their new power.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s Venom on the big screen being done as close to his comic book counterpart as we’ve seen so far in Hollywood. Even though the character isn’t in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the first step in that potentially happening down the line. And we wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more than a few easter eggs and shout-outs to the web crawler that’ll support that they’ll be in the same universe soon enough.

22 JULY (October 10)

Based on the 2011 Norway attacks, this film dramatizes the country’s deadliest terrorist invasion, in which a homegrown right-wing extremist murders 77 teens at a youth camp. 22 JULY uses the lens of one survivor’s physical and emotional journey of the aftermath to portray the country’s path to healing and reconciliation.

Why it’s worth your time: These acts of violence are a worldwide epidemic, and to our knowledge, this is one of the first dramatizations dealing with these current events. With the Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Paul Greengrass at the helm, this is expected to be great.

Apostle (October 12)

This is one of Netflix’s first horror-centric releases this month. The story follows Dan Stevens‘ Thomas Richardson as the “prodigal son” who returns home and finds his sister has been kidnaped by a religious blood cult. The protagonist then vows to retrieve her by traveling to a remote location and infiltrating the cult. In the trailer above, we can measure that the rescue doesn’t go according to plan.

Why it’s worth your time: It looks like a quality horror film that can get folks in the mood for the holiday season. It also looks bloody and visceral, which is probably due to The Raid director Gareth Evans being at the helm.

First Man (October 12)

Director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for First Man, the story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, zoning in on Neil Armstrong (Gosling) and the years 1961 to 1969. The film is also based on the book by James R. Hansen of the same name.

Why it’s worth your time: It could potentially be the sixth Academy Award for the team of Chazelle and Gosling, and given its subject matter, it probably will be. This is one of those films that’s prestigious solely based on its talent and subject matter, plus, it’ll dive into personal matters for Armstrong and the stress his mission put on him and his family.

Halloween (October 19)

Taking place after the original film and disregarding any previous installment, Halloween returns to check in on everyone’s favorite babysitter and home invasion slasher 40 years later. We see some documentarians present the franchise’s iconic mask to the incarcerated Myers, setting off a chain of events in which the killer escapes and a Loomis-esque Laurie Strode comes strapped with a gun and a contingency plan. It’s got callbacks to classic situations from the original film, and even has the original director John Carpenter heavily involved.

Why it’s worth your time: If you’ve got any sort of Halloween spirit in your body, this is the perfect movie to usher in October 31. It’s got Carpenter doing more than your typical executive producer, even providing the score of the film. If all that, in addition to having both the original Myers and Laurie actors back, isn’t enough for you, the film received a standing ovation when it premiered at TIFF this year. The Boogeyman is coming.

Mid90s (October 19)

Mid90s stars Sunny Suljic (Atreus in God of War) as 13-year-old Stevie living in 1990s L.A. who soon makes friends with a group of skaters that rubs his older bully brother (Lucas Hedges) the wrong way.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s a coming-of-age tale filled with debauchery, growth and self-realization. The A24 film has a Kids vibe with themes of youth, skateboarding and older siblings coming into the fold. It’s also Jonah Hill’s directorial debut.

Suspiria (October 26)

This horror remake follows Susie Bannion, played by Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey), attempting to join a foreign dancing school and potentially land work with a touring company. She meets a cast of strange people while attending, including a dancer played by Chloë Grace Moretz, who used to be favored by the head instructor Madam Blanc (Tilda Swinton), before she realized she’s being groomed for a benevolent spirit.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s a remake of one of the greatest foreign horror movies of all time. And if you’re already a fan and apprehensive because the remake lacks the hallmark Italian Giallo vibrancy of the original, watch the trailer above. We felt the same when the first trailer was released, but something about the second trailer honored the fantastic story elements and creep factor of the 1977 classic. It’s since become one of our most anticipated films of the month.


Joe Rogan: Strange Times (October 2, Netflix)

Joe Rogan is back at it with another Netflix standup special following his acclaimed Triggered set. Although Rogan’s been a household name since Fear Factor and crescendoing his notoriety with a podcast, he’s quickly gaining prominence with audiences for his comedy.

Why it’s worth your time: His last one was great, and if you’re a JRE fan, you know the brand of humor you’re in for going into this.

Big Mouth: Season 2 (October 5, Netflix)

The brazen animated series about the horrors of puberty returns this fall with more hormone monsters and puberty fairies than before. Complete with 10 new episodes, relive some of your most awkward moments as a teen through the eyes of these animated caricatures.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s one of Netflix’s original adult animated shows that is actually good, alongside newcomer Disenchantment. It’s a good substitution for Family Guy as well, given the platform recently removed it.

Star Wars Resistance (October 7, Disney XD)

A daring pilot named Kazuda Xiono embarks upon a secret mission against the First Order as a spy with a lot of help from his friends, including his recruiter Poe Dameron.

Why it’s worth your time: It follows Star Wars Rebel in terms of the animated series and will lead into the introduction of the new season of Clone Wars. There’s no doubt this show will connect more dots and weave itself into the animated universe of the galaxy far, far away. It will even utilize an anime aesthetic, a nod towards the Japanese lore the franchise was founded upon.

The Walking Dead: Season 9 (October 7, AMC)

Negan has been thwarted and thrown in captivity, leaving Rick and the gang to unite all compounds into one thriving community. Now it’s time to see how they mess it all up with in-house fighting, drama and human tribes that throw walker skin on their faces and kill people.

Why it’s worth your time: The death of Rick Grimes has become part of the marketing for TWD at this point, and it’s working. We’re genuinely interested to see how the show rids itself of its main character, especially since he and Carl are still central to the plot of the comic. After his death, we just may quit the season along with the entire rest of the series. But if done right, it could potentially breath new life into the show.

Black Lightning: Season 2 (October 9, The CW)

As a father and principal of a high school that also serves as a safe haven in a neighborhood overrun by violence, Jefferson Pierce is a hero to his community. He’s also a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he keeps his hometown safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s probably one of the only CW comic book shows worth watching these days, and for good reason. It differentiates itself from other superhero shows on the network with its subject matter and social issues. Plus it’s just cool seeing Scooter from Living Single finally get his day in a successful lead role.

The Haunting of Hill House (October 12, Netflix)

Based on the Shirley Jackson novel and 1963 classic of the same name, the series follows a mother whose family is cursed with ghostly experiences living in a haunted house in the country. The series narrative will jump back and forth between the past and present to unfold its story, focusing on the five lead children as they grow up, still reeling from the tragedy of the haunting.

Why it’s worth your time: Another strong horror-centric original from Netflix for Halloween. Except this one seems to focus more on the fallout of being victimized by lingering spirits, which is a different angle for a horror-based film or series to take.

Titans (October 12, DC Universe)

When Dick Grayson’s Robin and Rachel Roth’s Raven assemble assistance to deal with a plot that threatens the entire planet, they join with Koriand’r and Gar Logan (Starfire and Beast Boy, respectively) to form the Teen Titans.

Why it’s worth your time: “Fuck Batman” notwithstanding, this is the live-action show DC decided to premiere it’s streaming service with. It’s also the beginning of a new line of superhero television shows alongside the CW and Netflix, with the possibilities of delivering a different tone than we’re used to. Yeah, this looks like an overly gritty take on the team, but it may introduce an entirely new dynamic,one that could take us by surprise.

Harvey Birdman, Attorney General (October 14, Adult Swim)

The half-hour cartoon mashup special will feature Stephen Colbert once again portraying supervillain President Phil Sebben, who has made Birdman the new attorney general. Birdman has ulterior motives, however, as he looks to use the newly-appointed position to get Sebben out of office.

Why it’s worth your time: It’s the return of a late-night classic, bringing back most of the original cast, including Gary Cole as Birdman. The revival also looks to be parodying the current Trump administration.

Making a Murderer: Season 2 (October 19, Netflix)

The sequel to Netflix’s critically-acclaimed series will focus on the post-conviction process of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, showcasing the emotional toll the verdicts have taken on their respective families, including Brendan’s mother, Barb.

Why it’s worth your time: The conspiracy behind the entire affair is shocking, and it’s even more shocking (as well as sad) that there’s more to unpack in this story, or that these two are still incarcerated following the original series. The story captivated the nation when it originally released. And in these tumultuous times, Part 2 is sure to awestruck viewers again.

Daredevil: Season 3 (October 19, Netflix)

Following his apparent death at the end of The Defenders, we pick up with Matt getting bandaged up in a church, setting up the events for season 3, where Murdock will be forced to deal with Elektra’s death, his presumed death by the public, as well as the fallout of him revealing to Karen Page he’s Daredevil.

Why it’s worth your time: We’ve actually gotten to see the first six episodes, and this season promises to be one of the best to come out of Marvel x Netflix. It seems to be adopting two classic Daredevil stories, one of which being Born Again, one of the character’s most acclaimed stories. There will also be an introduction to a classic Daredevil villain that will make fanboys revel in this slightly morphed retelling.

Castlevania: Season 2 (October 26, Netflix)

The gory trailer for Netflix’s breakout anime series highlights the violence by tying events from the previous season, showing Alucard teaming up with protagonist Trevor Belmont to take down the former’s vampire father Dracula.

Why it’s worth your time: Castlevania season one was shockingly good. It nodded towards its video game source material when it needed to, and told a finely crafted story that made us sympathize with the antagonist of the series before the hunt to take him down even began. It’s a great Halloween alternative and happens to drop when the Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood bundle hits PS4.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (October 26, Netflix)

Based on the darker take of the original Sabrina The Teenaged Witch comic of the same name, this 1960’s coming-of-age story follows Sabrina Spellman (Kiernan Shipka) as an orphan of a warlock and human whose turning 16 and attending a Hogwarts-like school for magic folk. However, her half-mortal-half-witch heritage is making her question her place in the world.

Why it’s worth your time: Did you know the original ’90s show was originally a comic book? Neither did we, but in our current climate of comic book adaptation, it has us intrigued to see how a Sabrina story tied close to its source material will look. Especially given its tonal shift from a sitcom to a horror drama.

Halloween TV: a spooky October viewing guide
Here are a few picks among the spookiest TV shows airing and streaming in the UK this October…

Louisa Mellor
Oct 3, 2018

Of the many wondrous gifts the New World has given the UK over the centuries—potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, Jeff Goldblum—Halloween is one of the greatest. Yes, we had our own version before the US remake arrived with its supermarket costumes and kitsch decorations, but that was more a turnips and bonfires kind of deal. Nobody dressed up like Cruella de Vil or made themselves sick on Hotel Chocolat Tiddy Vampires, more fool the druids.

For those of you planning to embrace the season in all its ghostly glory, here’s a selection of suitably spooky viewing. Hang a rubber bat from your window, put your glittery pumpkin-shaped deely boppers on, dig in to some Mr Kipling Fiendish Fancies, and enjoy…

Inside No. 9 Live Halloween Special

Fresh from their 47-show League Of Gentlemen live tour, Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton have taken on an impressive new task – live TV drama. BBC Two is to air a special live Halloween episode of Shearsmith and Pemberton’s excellent anthology series Inside No. 9. Writing and starring in six innovative, clever, funny and often poignant half-hours a year must simply have become not enough of a challenge…

No strangers to the theatre, Shearsmith and Pemberton certainly have the performance experience required to pull off a live instalment. As for the episode itself, BBC Two promises “a twisted tale which will aim to surprise, delight, unnerve and amuse in equal measure," but has so far made no casting, story or air date announcements. As ever with Inside No. 9, it’s probably best not to know too much. Just tune in and prepare for whatever dark delights are in store.

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina

It’s best to cleanse your memory of the 1990s ABC Sabrina The Teenage Witch before stepping into this Netflix series. Riverdale’s Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has given the Archie comics character a dark makeover with actual scares. Don’t expect a wisecracking familiar, a laugh track or anyone using a supernatural vacuum cleaner as a mode of transport. Expect monsters, baddies and delicious darkness, all against a high school backdrop.

All ten episodes of the new series, starring Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka, Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Richard Coyle and Michelle Gomez, arrive on Netflix UK on Friday the 26th of October.

The Haunting Of Hill House

Oculus, Hush and Before I Wake director Mike Flanagan has adapted Shirley Jackson’s celebrated 1950s novel into a ten-episode Netflix series. It’s a decidedly new take on the original story, but stays true to Jackson’s psychological horror by focusing on character, trauma and family relationships. Flanagan moves the action decades into the future and jumps back and forth between a family’s experiences as children in Hill House, and as adults traumatised by what happened there. Game Of Thrones’ Michael Huisman stars, and all ten episodes arrive on Netflix on Friday the 12th of October.

A Discovery Of Witches

Sky One’s adaptation of Deborah Harkness fantasy book series doesn’t seem to be quite winning over over TV audiences in the same way as it did readers, but there are plenty of rewards for sticking with it. First of all, the locations, from ancient libraries to elegant castles, are beautifully escapist. As is the story, of romance, scientist vampires and academic witches, a rare book and a centuries-old conflict. Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer lead a cast including Lindsay Duncan, Alex Kingston, Louise Brealey, Trevor Eve and more. Just the thing for cosy evenings in with a glass of Baileys and a Warburtons Giant Crumpet.

Creeped Out

This terrific, chilling anthology series for kids arrived on CBBC last Halloween and we couldn’t recommend it more. Its inventive half-hour stories provide eerie fun and great storytelling for kids, alongside a tonne of nerdy movie references for grown-ups. A second series is already in the works and due to arrive in the UK and Canada early next year. Before that, CBBC will welcome a Christmas Special in December 2018.

Creeped Out is on this list though, because it’s about to launch worldwide on Netflix (not yet in the UK or Canada) from Thursday the 4th of October.

The Worst Witch

Act fast, because both series of CBBC’s ace The Worst Witch adaptation leave BBC iPlayer on Friday the 19th of October. There’s just enough time before then to enjoy this new take on Jill Murphy’s modern kids’ classics. Game Of Thrones viewers among The Worst Witch’s grown-up fans will recognise lead Bella Ramsey, who plays the formidable Lyanna Mormont in the HBO show.

The Worst Witch is the story of Mildred Hubble and her exploits at Miss Cackle’s Academy for Witches. (Game Of Thrones viewers among The Worst Witch’s grown-up fans will recognise lead Bella Ramsey, who plays the formidable Lyanna Mormont in the HBO show.) It’s fun, escapist and a reminder that the world had schools of witchcraft and wizardry long before Hagrid even revved that motorbike.

Dead Room

Dead Room doesn’t yet have an air date and may not arrive until much later in the year, but it should nonetheless be on ghost story fans’ radars. Written and directed by Sherlock and League Of Gentlemen’s Mark Gatiss, it’s an original half-hour spooky story set and filmed at the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios before their closure. Simon Callow plays veteran broadcaster and national treasure Aubrey Judd, long-time host of a series of radio ghost stories, and a relic whom modernity threatens to eclipse. The Bodyguard’s Anjli Mohindra co-stars, with Susan Penhaligon and Joshua Oakes-Rogers.

The Curious Creations Of Christine McConnell

A combination of crafting, baking, Gothic horror and puppets… oh, look, it’s probably for the best if we just let the trailer explain what The Curious Creations Of Christine McConnell is.

See? A kind of Bake-Off of the dead, but more promising than that sounds. Catch it on Netflix from Friday the 12th of October.

The Purge

Here in the UK, Amazon Prime Video is currently airing an episode a week of USA Network’s The Purge, the ten-part TV series based on James Demonaco’s hit horror movie franchise. You’ll know the drill by now – the episodes unroll against the backdrop of a twelve-hour period during which all crime, including murder, is legal. It takes place in a parallel present version of the United States run by a totalitarian political party, and the TV series focuses on multiple characters’ Purges in the same small city.

American Horror Story: Apocalypse

American Horror Story season eight is currently airing on FOX on Saturday nights at 10pm here in the UK, and early signs are encouragingly bonkers. Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters and more are all back in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s latest anthology series, which is going by the timely name of Apocalypse. Expect madness and everything to be a little too much.

Castlevania season 2

Eight new episodes of this anime-influence US series arrive on Netflix on Friday the 26th of October, just in time for Halloween. A four-episode first season was released in July 2017 to some acclaim and widespread demand.

Based on Konami’s 1989 Gothic Horror videogame Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, the series features the vocal talents of Hannibal’s Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont, tasked with defending the nation of Wallachia against Dracula and his evil hordes.

And for movie fans, Film4 will be airing the following creepy treats over the next few weeks:

Crimson Peak – Monday the 17th of October at 10.45pm

The Woman In Black – Tuesday the 18th of October at 11.20pm

The Quiet Ones – Tuesday the 18th of October at 1.10am

The Woman In Black 2: Angel Of Death – Wednesday the 19th of October at 10.50pm

The Pact – Wednesday the 19th of October at 12.50am

The Haunting – Thursday the 20th of October at 11pm

Sinister – Thursday the 20th of October at 1.15am

Stonehearst Asylum – Friday the 21st of October at 12.50am.

While Amazon Prime Video will be adding the following during the month of October:

Halloween: Resurrection

Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

Halloween H20: 20 Years Later

Lights Out

Scream 2

Scream 3

Final Destination

Final Destination 5

Netflix is offering up these new October additions:



I Spit On Your Grave

All of the Twilight films


Red Dragon

And finally, over on Sky Cinema between Sunday the 13th and Wednesday the 31st of October, a host of classics will air including the 1978 original Halloween, The Exorcist, A Nightmare On Elm Street and some destined-to-be modern classics, including It, It Comes At Night and must-watch Oscar-winner Get Out.

Happy viewing, mwahahahahaha!

'Castlevania' Season 2 Air Date, Spoilers: Fight with Dracula Continues in Upcoming Season

Sunday, October 21, 2018 7:09 AM UTC

Trevor Belmont (voiced by Richard Armitage), Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso), and Alucard (James Callis) are back as they continue to look for a way to save humanity from Dracula (Graham McTavish) in “Castlevania” Season 2.

As the reluctant hero and last surviving member of the Belmont clan, Trevor spent most of the first season as the show’s main protagonist, but reports have revealed that Alucard and Sypha are going to get their fair share of screen time in “Castlevania” Season 2. There is some bad news, though. In his review of “Castlevania” Season 2, GameSpot’s Michael Rougeau said the three heroes aren’t going to do much in the first six episodes as they spend most of their time researching on ways to defeat Dracula. Well, that doesn’t sound exciting at all.

According to Rougeau, Dracula’s underlings are far more interesting in “Castlevania” Season 2 with Peter Stormare voicing the bloodthirsty Viking vampire Godbrand and Jaime Murray voicing the power-hungry female vampire Carmilla. Theo James and Adetokumboh M'Cormack are voicing Hector and Isaac as well, two humans who are part of Dracula’s war council.

Described as a “forge master,” Hector sure sounds like the protagonist of “Castlevania: Curse of Darkness,” so it will be interesting to see if he changes sides in “Castlevania” Season 2. Meanwhile, Isaac happens to be the main antagonist of that game.

Despite the pacing problems, “Castlevania” Season 2 sounds like it is worth a watch. Don’t forget to check it out once it comes out on Oct. 26 on Netflix.

“One thing Castlevania Season 2 definitely does have is buildup. All the intrigue and tension is leading somewhere--there's never doubt of that. By the end of the sixth episode, with just two more to go, the pieces seem to finally be falling into place. Belmont is fighting demons, Sypha is doing magic, and Dracula is--well, Dracula is still brooding, but the rest of his forces are finally at war. The action is still creatively executed, and fights look cool,” Rougeau said in his review for GameSpot.

Castlevania season 2 cast: Who is in Castlevania?
CASTLEVANIA season 2 is coming to Netflix with all of the main voice cast returning to the series. But who is in the voice cast of Netflix’s Castlevania?

By Samuel Spencer
PUBLISHED: 21:48, Thu, Oct 25, 2018 | UPDATED: 22:07, Thu, Oct 25, 2018

Netflix’s hyper-violent vampire animation Castlevania is returning for a second season this Friday (October 26).

The first series of the video game adaptation from Netflix was over a year ago in July 2017.

However, all of the original voice cast have returned for the new eight episodes of Castlevania.

In season two, our heroes led by Trevor Belmont (played by Richard Armitage) have to face off against Dracula (Graham McTavish) after he pledges revenge on humanity after the death of his wife.

Warren Ellis breaks down Castlevania Season 2's best moments

Dana Forsythe
Oct 29, 2018

It's beyond difficult to make a successful adaptation of a video game. Box office bombs such as Warcraft, Double Dragon, Max Payne, Street Fighter, Rampage, Doom, Assassin's Creed and the infamously awful 1993 Super Mario Brothers are just a few that come to mind. With the debut of Castlevania on Netflix last year, series co-producer and writer Warren Ellis (Astonishing X-Men, Iron Man: Extremis, Transmetropolitan, The Authority) has bucked that trend, creating one of the best anime series in recent memory.

Through Ellis' exquisite storytelling, Castlevania shines thanks to the blurred lines between good and evil. Ellis' nuanced approach doesn't just paint Vlad Dracula Tepes as a monster waiting in the shadows, but as someone who has suffered real loss, sparking his thirst for death and revenge. Equally important is Ellis' portrayal of the Church, whose corrupt leaders cling to superstitions as they falsely accuse Dracula's wife of witchcraft before burning her at the stake. At the center, Trevor Belmont serves as the reluctant hero, feared by townsfolk for his super-human powers and perceived link to dark forces.

SYFY WIRE spoke with Ellis in the wake of Castlevania Season 2 about the long journey to create the series, why it's OK to like Dracula and how he crafted the series' emotional, dramatic conclusion.

"[Feeling empathy for Dracula] was very important for me," Ellis told SYFY WIRE. "Nobody is the villain of their own story, after all. And I think the best villains are tragic — it's their response to loss that reveals who they are. It makes them more real, and that's what I wanted for Dracula."


Netflix's Castlevania is loosely based on the third iteration of the popular video game series of the same name. 1989's Castlevania III is actually a prequel to Konami's original for the Nintendo Entertainment System, which was released in 1986. In the game, Trevor Belmont returns from exile to his home of Wallachia, Romania, to fight Dracula's dark army of monsters with the help of young sorceress Sypha Belnades, pirate Grant Danasty, and Dracula's son, a dhampir (half-vampire, half-human) named Alucard.

Ellis says he was first approached to work on a Castlevania animated movie in 2007 and wrote a script, but the project fell apart. Ellis never played any of the Castlevania video games, so when he was first approached about working on the project, he did what he usually does and hit the internet to read as much as he could about the property.

"What I found were the parallels between it and the Hammer horror movies I grew up with, many of which were set in eastern Europe, often in times long past, and usually featuring vampires," Ellis says. "And that was a thing I knew well, and was interested in finding my own take on."

A decade later, Kevin Kolde of Samurai Jack and Adventure Time fame called Ellis and said he'd sold Castlevania to Netflix as a four-episode serial. "[He] asked if I'd be prepared to rewrite the original film script to fit," Ellis says. "To which my first response was, 'Who are you and how did you get my number?' I mean, it'd been ten years. I'd forgotten all about it."

Ellis says he suspects the media landscape needed a decade to change enough to accommodate an animated, swear-heavy medieval horror fantasy. With the story back on the table, he cut the original script into four parts, "chopped off some bits that didn't fit, fiddled with other bits," and filled the four-episode order.


After the success of Castlevania's Season 1, Ellis says he was left in the "interesting position of having absolutely no idea what to do."

"I knew I had to find a conclusion, and that I wanted to find ways to enrich the backdrop, which meant adding new characters," he says. "The season quickly became a little too dense for my own good. I remember Kevin telling me to stop after the third episode, and sending the scripts over to Netflix, who called to offer me a doubling of the episode order."

With the extended order, Ellis says he had the room to open it up, slow down the pacing, and explore these characters and their world.

"[I was able to] build in as much nuance as I could and give as much space as possible to let my actors work," he says. "Also, it let director Sam Deats and his world-class crew at Powerhouse Animation really show their ranges as artists. Ted Biaselli and Larry Tanz, my Netflix partners, have been an absolute dream to work with, by the way — nothing but creative support from start to finish."


In the show, Ellis allows Trevor Belmont (Richard Armitage), Alucard (James Callis), Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso), and Dracula (Graham MacTavish) the room to develop in their own right as the medieval horror story slowly unfolds.

"I was so lucky to get everyone I wanted, and to be able to hold on to Richard, Alejandra, James, and Graham," Ellis says. "They all did wonders with the script... and they always just make me better. Fantastic people. And they all love to experiment and try things."

Ellis says one memorable moment with Carmilla, a general in Dracula's army, stood out in particular.

"That bit where Jaime Murray [who plays Carmilla] starts giggling as she beats up another character is just the wrongest, creepiest, funniest thing," he says. "Ade (Adetokumboh McCormack) as Isaac is just so cool and so cold, Theo James [who plays Devil Forgemaster Hector] finds that odd little-boy fragility so well, Peter Stormare [who played Godbrand] is just a force of nature. Half the crew just fell apart when Graham and James did their big scenes towards the end of the season."

Equally important, Ellis says, was Trevor Morris' score, a mix of classical screen music, early music (comprised of Medieval and Renaissance music) and experimental influences.

"I think what he does for us is crucial — going from immense scale to eerie strangeness," he said. "It's not often you can talk to someone about ancient musical instruments and German electronic music from the 1970s. That incredible breadth of musical knowledge and skill he has makes our score pretty unique."

After rewatching Season 1 and wading through Season 2 of Castlevania, SYFY WIRE has assembled a few of our favorite moments from the series. Even though there are too many to count, we focused on moments that illustrate Ellis' expert storytelling as he gave life to one of the original video game smash hits.

If you haven't seen the entire series, please note, spoilers lie ahead.


In the opening scene of Castlevania, Ellis turns the legend of Dracula on its head, making Dracula relatable. Having moved away from his penchant for death, Dracula has become more or less a hermit, having sworn off humanity as it clings to superstitions pushed by the church.

Searching for knowledge, Dracula's love interest Lisa wants to work toward a more civilized world and explains to Dracula that not all humans are superstitious peasants. She reasons with Dracula, saying humans could be made better with the help of medicine and science.

"They won't be peasants if you teach them, they won't live short, scared lives if you give them medicine," she says. "We can make the world better. Start with me and I'll start with you."

The result is that we're left with hope and even empathy for Vlad Tepes.


One year after his wife is burned at the stake for witchcraft, Dracula returns to deliver on a promise that Wallachia will pay for her death.

As the town of Targoviste gathers for a speech by the Archbishop, Dracula manifests the return of his castle amid a tornado of fire, blood raining from the sky and death to all who stand by.

"I gave you one year, and now I bring your death," he says. "You had your chance."

As fire-breathing winged monsters pour out of his castle, no one is spared.

"Kill everything you see, once Targoviste is made into graveyard spread into the country," Dracula says. "Go now and kill, kill for my love and this lifetime of hate before me."


When Trevor Belmont arrives in the ruined town of Gresit, he's still drunk from the night before. Walking through the town, he comes across two men of the cloth as they corner a local speaker who they threaten with death. Only concerned with finding food and drink, Trevor is faced with a choice to keep to himself or confront the two. He reluctantly intervenes, snapping away the priest's staff and, in the process, the man's finger.

"Look I don't like priests at the best of times, I mean I really, really don't like priests," he warns. "So if you leave now we'll say no more about it."

When the men instead brandish arms, Belmont defends himself, leaving the two hurt but alive.

The moment speaks to Belmont's good soul. Even while being threatened with death by the corrupt men of the Church, he's still hesitant to hurt them.

With that simple scene, we're given insight into what kind of man Trevor truly is. Standing up against the church again at the end of the episode, Trevor owns up to his family's legacy, protecting the mysterious speakers against a horde of priests and a mob of townsfolk.


There is no more satisfying moment in the first season of Castlevania than the death of the Bishop. In addition to being misguided, corrupt and twisted, he serves as the catalyst for Dracula's return, burning Lisa Tepes at the stake.

When Dracula's horde finally overruns the city of Gresit, he is left alone at the mercy of a fearsome, six-eyed beast. Still stuck to his belief that he is a man acting in God's name, he is quickly brought into the reality of the situation by the monster.

"No wonder he has abandoned you," the demon tells him. "But we love you. We couldn't be here without you. Let me kiss you."


Dracula's general and chief reincarnation expert Hector (Theo James) is one of the best new characters of Season 2 — not only for his lovable zombie dog Cesar but because from the outset, he's conflicted about his role in Dracula's war, struggling with his humanity.

As the Devil Forgemaster works to convert the dead of Gresit, Ellis' juxtaposition of warlord Godbrand's (Peter Stormare) call for order only highlights Hector's strange role in Dracula's war.

We're given another look at Hector in Episode 7 as he flashes back to his first resurrection of the family dog only highlighting his inability to relate to vampire or humans. Ellis' play on the duality of the so-called bad guys, leaves the viewer feeling like Hector simply didn't get a fair shake when he was young.


When she makes her debut in Episode 3, we're given a clear look at the cunning and conniving Carmila as she explains her plan to unseat Dracula. With a simple question regarding Dracula's hesitation to turn his wife into a vampire, she quickly undercuts his authority in front of his generals at the start of her story. But we don't really see why until the end of the episode when she reveals why to Godbrand.

It's part of Ellis' continued push to present the cause and effect of abuse, whether it's the church or, in Camilla's case, her former master.

"I was turned centuries ago by a vampire master who said he was giving me the world," she tells Godbrand. "But in time, he grew old and cruel and mad. I was bound to him. Until I decided to take back my world."


Speaking of plans to further the war against the humans, Dracula and Issac share a moment in which the dark lord recounts his former love for carnage. Flashing back to when the merchants of Kronstadt disrespected him, we're given a look at a Dracula we haven't seen yet.

"I used to relish in the details of death," he tells Isaac.

During the raid of the town, we see Dracula enjoying himself for the first time since the first episode when he met his wife. Setting fires to draw out the townspeople, Vlad delights in the blood and death as the humans put up a futile fight. As the women and children return to the burning town, they're horrified to see the men staked along the ridge of their now-destroyed home.

"Those times are long gone," he says, exasperated.

With this quick interlude, Ellis provides a stark contrast to the bloodthirsty monster Dracula once was and the tired, old, depressed version of Vlad Tepes he's become.


Ellis knew he was asking the Castlevania animators for the moon when he first scripted the final fight between Trevor, Sypha, Alucard, and Dracula. To the team's credit, they delivered and more with one of the best fight scenes in recent anime history.

In addition to the heavy action, the fight ends in a spectacularly impassioned conclusion when Dracula and Alucard end up in the latter's former childhood room. It's the perfect ending for the series, as Dracula finally remembers what it was like to love and be a part of a real family.
