The announcement came earlier this month that a “super violent” animated Castlevania series produced by Adi Shankar was coming to Netflix. Now Shankar himself just debuted poster art (below) on his Facebook page with a full moon, a horde of bats, and a monstrous depicting of Dracula’s castle.
Here’s the official word on the series from Netflix:
“Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.”
The first season of Castlevania comes to Netflix later this year.
