Castlevania–the Netflix animated series based on the Konami video game franchise–will pull up stakes (pun intended) with its fourth and final season that starts next month.
This fourth season–which premieres on Netflix May 13–will run for 10 episodes, as reported by comicbook.com, but this may not truly be the final curtain for this animated world.
Rumor has it that a new series set in the Castlevania universe–with a different set of characters–may be developed somewhere down the line. So stay tuned and, in the meantime, enjoy the Season 4 teaser trailer below.

The storyline for Castlevania–created by Warren Ellis, directed by Sam Deats and produced by Frederator Studios–begins when Count Dracula’s wife is burned at the stake and the Vampire Lord vows vengeance against the people of Wallachia, according to the official synopsis. To combat this, the monster hunter Trevor Belmont “takes up arms against Dracula’s forces, aided by the magician Sypha Belnades and Dracula’s half-human son, Alucard.”
The voice cast includes Richard Armitage, Graham McTavish, James Callis, Emily Swallow, Matt Frewer, Tony Amendola and Alejandra Reynoso.
The first season of Castlevania debuted on Netflix in 2017 with just four episodes. The show came back the following year with eight episodes, and followed that up with a 10-episode season last year.
