Netflix has quickly renewed Castlevania: Nocturne after its September 28 debut. The Konami property has been a major success among Netflix’s game-to-film adaptations. The original anime-styled series ran for four seasons.
Nocturne is a sequel set during the French Revolution — about 300 years after the original Castlevania series. It is based on 1993’s Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and its 1997 sequel, Symphony of the Night.
Nocturne follows Annette, a sorceress from the Caribbean, teaming up with Richter Belmont, the last descendent of the famed vampire hunting family. Together, they fight a Vampire messiah that is allied with the counter-revolutionary aristocracy.
“Thanks to all of the Castlevania fans old and new for the amazing response and support!” said series creator and co-showrunner Clive Bradley and co-showrunner Kevin Kolde. “We are excited to be able to bring you more ‘Castlevania: Nocturne’ and the next chapter in the rise of Richter Belmont.”
