It’s time to celebrate, Castlevania: Nocturne fans, as Netflix confirmed that the second season of the anime adaptation is now in production.
Earlier this week, Netflix released a very short teaser video with the words everyone wanted to hear in the trailer’s description: “Castlevania: Nocturne will return for a second season. The project is currently in production.” The trailer itself was simple, offering brief glimpses of some of the characters we met in the recently released first season. According to series director Samuel Deats, all images shown in the trailer are “real storyboards, layouts and animations” for the second season. It should be noted that despite its short runtime, the trailer contains some spoilers for the final episode of the first season.
“I’m sorry to keep you waiting,” Deats also said wrote. “It won’t take quite as long this time.” The fact that there won’t be as long a wait for the second season as the first will be good news for fans of the series, but neither Deats nor Netflix provided any information on this. when exactly we can expect the next season.
“Thank you to all Castlevania fans old and new for the great response and support,” showrunners Cliver Bradley and Kevin Kolde said in a press release. “We’re excited to bring you more Castlevania: Nocturne and the next chapter in the rise of Judge Belmont.”
While the first four seasons of the original Castlevania show focused on Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belnades, this time the focus is on their descendant Judge Belmont, who teams up with a group of hunters and mages to prevent an apocalypse and all against the backdrop of the French Revolution. The show debuted last year and was finally released in late September, receiving generally positive reviews.
