The Castlevania season 3 trailer is here and it is sick. The Netflix series, showrun by Warren Ellis, is a riff on the genre defining games that put players in control of the vampire slaying Belmont family. The previous two seasons of anime-inspired animation have kept fans hungry for more – and thanks to the NX on Netflix Twitter account, we’ve got just that, along with a premiere date.
Following last season’s triumph over a particularly sanguine baddy, humanity is in shambles (probably more accurate to say still in shambles?). Naturally, Trevor Belmont, (Richard Armitage), Alucard (James Callis) and Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso). Based on the less than two minutes of footage here, it looks like the crew will be pivoting from vampire-slaying to monster-hunting as hordes of chaotic creatures descend upon the Earth. In one final scene, the Castlevania season 3 trailer goes black and white for a tease at a spectacular action that I am very excited to see the rest of.
Luckily, we won’t have to wait very long. Castlevania season 3 returns March 5. It’s a welcome return for a series that’s been quiet for nearly a year and a half. Check out the trailer for yourself below.
