Netflix has revealed the first image for the anticipated third season of Castlevania, its original animated series based on the acclaimed video game franchise of the same name. If you’re looking for a first look at what to expect from Season 3, look at the header image of the show’s Twitter account–or just keep scrolling, we’ve embedded it below.
The new header image features four characters. Of the four, only one is immediately recognizable–Carmilla, the secondary antagonist of Castlevania Season 2 and a recurring boss from the video game series. The other three are brand-new, never-before-seen characters. The image offers no hint as to the allegiance of the three new characters, though spotlighting them at all implies that they’ll feature prominently in some capacity to the storyline of Season 3.
Not much is yet known about Castlevania Season 3. Netflix confirmed a Season 3 would be made almost immediately after the debut of Season 2, adding that director Sam Deats, writer/executive producer Warren Ellis, and executive producers Adi Shankar, Fred Seibert, and Kevin Kolde would return. Season 3 is scheduled to consist of 10 episodes.
In a description for Season 3, Netflix writes, “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.”
Castlevania is one of Netflix’s expanding library of anime exclusives alongside acclaimed hits like Aggretsuko, Devilman Crybaby, and Violet Evergarden.
