Castlevania Season 5: Is It Renewed Or Canceled?

Castlevania was a very important show for Netflix. It was one of the first anime shows on the service, and it was also the first video game adaptation to get a “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Based on a long-running video game series that started in the 1980s, this dark medieval fantasy appears to follow outcast vampire hunter Trevor Belmont as he battles to save the country of Wallachia from a grief-stricken Dracula and his army of strange creatures.

A good show or movie based on a video game is a very rare thing, so it makes sense that many fans were confused when Netflix said that the show would end after season four. But since all four seasons of Castlevania were praised by critics and fans, don’t expect the coffin to stay closed. After all, this is a show about vampires, resurrection, and the dead.

Will there be a Castlevania season 5?

Season 5 of “Castlevania” will not happen. The anime will have a fourth season starting in March 2020, just a few weeks after season 3 comes out on Netflix. A month after the renewal, it was said that the anime would end after the fourth season. The last season came out in May 2021, and the story was pretty well-wrapped up. As usual, Netflix did not tell us why the show was taken off the list. The streamer also often hides how many people watch (except for a few well-performing shows). So, we might not ever know the real reason why the event was canceled.

We can only guess that the anime came to a natural end and be glad that it did a good job of tying up all its loose ends. The last episode of the fourth and last season of “Castlevania” is a bloody battle at Castle Dracula. We discovered out that Malcolm McDowell’s character, Varney, is the Grim Reaper, and that he wants to bring back Dracula and make him go on a killing spree so that they can have a never-ending supply of food. The bad plan was stopped because of Trevor. In the end, everything worked out. Trevor, Sypha, Alucard, Greta, Dracula, and Lisa all had happy endings. Dracula and Lisa came back to life in their old bodies, and instead of looking for revenge, they decided to travel the world together.

Will there be a Castlevania spin-off?

Yes! Netflix has confirmed that there will be a new show set in the Castlevania universe. But Deadline says the show won’t be a direct spin-off. Instead, it will be a “new series set in the same Castlevania universe with a whole new cast of characters.”

That probably rules out a continuation of Dracula’s story after he was brought back to life, or maybe even the adventures of Trevor and Sypha’s unborn child, but there are plenty of other Belmonts from the games to focus on. Castlevania is great for separate series and spin-offs, even if they take place a long time apart in time. This is because the games take place at different times and follow the same family over generations.

Simon Belmont was the main character in the first Castlevania games, which came out in the 1980s. He is one of the most well-known characters in the series, so it would make sense to give him his own series, even if his adventures happen 200 years after Trevor’s. Even though the show never showed their child, Sypha’s pregnancy was revealed for a reason. It’s clear that the showrunners are trying to set up the idea of a Belmont lineage.

Will there be more ‘Castlevania’ content in the future?

Even though the anime is over and Trevor Belmont’s story is over for good, there are still many ways for the “Castlevania” world to come back to Netflix in the future. There is enough material for spinoffs to be made for decades. But besides spinoffs, there are other ways to learn more about the “Castlevania” universe, like a cross-over between different universes. In 2018, Adi Shankar, who was in charge of making Castlevania, bought the rights to the Japanese game series Devil May Cry.

He will make an animated series based on the game and told IGN that it “will join Castlevania in what we now call the bootleg multiverse.” But we still don’t know how Castlevania will fit into the project, though we might find out soon. The producer of “Devil May Cry,” Adi Shankar, gave us a long-awaited update on the game in October 2021. The script is already done for the first season.
