Castlevania is one of the most loved video games of all time. Its first adaptation was released on Netflix in 2017. The Netflix series brought millions of fans to Castlevania in just four years. It aired over four seasons with 32 episodes. Castlevania: Nocturne will carry on the Castlevania manga's legacy, inspired by its colorful characters and stories.

Castlevania has produced a total number of 29 games since 1986. It has featured some of the most famous villains and heroes in videogame history, including Dracula and many members of the vampire-hunting Belmont clan like Trevor and Simon.

The first episode of Castlevania was released in July 2017. Millions of viewers around the globe were immediately hooked by Powerhouse Animation's animation, Warren Ellis' writing, and the charisma of an all-star cast that included James Callis and Richard Armitage.

Many subscribers wondered if the ending of the Castlevania series in 2021 was truly the end. Thankfully, with so many stories and characters to take inspiration from, we’ll soon see the start of the next chapter of the Castlevania story in Castlevania: Nocturne.

How does Castlevania's plot work?

Castlevania: Nocturne's plot is currently being kept under wraps. We do know, however, that Richter Belmont will be the main character in the tale. He is the descendant from Sypha Belnades and Trevor Belmont.

Richter Belmont was born in the 17th century, a few hundred years after his ancestor Trevor Belmont’s clash with Dracula. In the video games, Richter is the protagonist of Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night, which took place in the years 1792 and 1797.

How is Castlevania Nocturne produced?

Official Production Status: Preproduction (Last Updated 13/06/2022).

The production of Castlevania, Nocturne is unknown. Powerhouse Animation is working on it.

Are any casting members known?

Netflix is yet to name any cast members at the time this article was written. Considering the story takes place centuries after the events of the original anime series we aren’t expecting to see Richard Armitage or Alejandra Reynoso reprise their roles as Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belnades, respectively.

Theo James might return to Alucard, considering that Dracula's dhampir-son is immortal.

It’s our expectation that we will see Castlevania: Nocturne on Netflix before the end of 2023.
