I was hesitant to report on the announcement of the upcoming Castlevania series from Netflix. Largely because there wasn’t much to go by. As a matter of fact, all that we received in terms of announcement was this little scoop of info from Netflix:

unnamed (2)

That’s from Netflix’s “media center”. And, like I said, it’s not a heck of a lot to go on. Fortunately, in a recent newsletter, writer Warren Ellis has shined a bit more light (no pun intended) on Castlevania. Again, it ain’t much, but it’s something…

From Orbital Operations: 

That is the official Netflix press release. it is incomplete, but that’s all there is for now, and I’ve been asked not to say more. So I can’t say more about structure, tone, or the amazing voice cast we somehow managed to gather.

But my co-producer and diamond geezer Adi Shankar has said some more about it at this link here, giving additional details.

So… yeah. That’s a thing that is happening.  And by “happening” I mean we’ve been working on it for over a year so far.

It was codename PROJECT KRONSTADT.

Told you it wasn’t much. Regardless, the very notion of a Castlevania 4-parter from Adi Shankar, the producer who gave us this…

And Warren Ellis, the writer of this…

… is something to be excited about.
