If you’re looking for some streamable content to enjoy this Halloween, Netflix is gearing up to release “Castlevania Season 2” in just a few weeks. The video-streaming service has released a new trailer for the upcoming new episodes, teasing a few of the story-lines and characters that fans will enjoy.
This will be the big follow-up season for Castlevania, a series inspired by the classic videogame franchise. The dark medieval fantasy follows the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. Trevor Belmont, last survivor of his house, is no longer alone, and he and his misfit comrades race to find a way to save humanity from extinction at the hands of the grief-maddened Dracula and his sinister vampire war council. Fans of the franchise can watch the new trailer below.
“Castlevania Season 2” was just one of several big anime series that Netflix announced this year during the company’s presentation at the Anime Expo. A few of the other series mentioned were “Ultraman,” “Kengan Ashura,” “Aggretsuko Season 2,” “GODZILLA: City on the Edge of Battle,” “Dragon Pilot,” and “Cannon Busters”. If you’re a fan of anime you can find more information on these series here. “Ultraman” and “Godzilla” probably have the best name recognition on the list but we are very excited to see more of “Kengan Ashura” and “Dragon Pilot” when the show’s premiere on Netflix.
Fans can also look forward to the new series “Locke & Key,” written by Joe Hill, a horror/fantasy series that revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities. The IDW Publishing Locke & Key comic book franchise, co-created by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, has garnered both awards and acclaim during its ten-year run; has been translated into dozens of languages across the globe; and has sold millions of copies worldwide.
If you need to set a reminder, “Castlevania Season 2” is set to release on October 26th, only on Netflix.
