Fans are now waiting for the coming of Castlevania Season 4 after Netflix announced its return. With the arrival of Blood of Zeus, the wait just gets more intense with the similarities these two shows have.
With a slew of original anime series that Netflix features, it cannot be denied that the streaming giant is doing exceptionally well so far. Its TV adaptation of the dark medieval fantasy video game is said to be one of the bests, thanks to its great animation and A-list cast.
Ever since it hit Netflix in 2017, it has become one of the network's much-awaited shows ever. So, what will happen in Castlevania Season 4?
According to HITC, Netflix renewed the show a few weeks after Season 3's release. With an all-star cast, positive responses, and superb storyline, it is no surprise that fans will be once again treated with another season.
However, Digital Spy noted that the renewal seemed to come at the wrong time. The announcement was made when the whole entertainment industry was put to a full stop because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
So, by the looks of it, Castlevania Season 4 may be put on hold. Jessica Brown Findlay, who plays Lenore, has yet to get back to filming. She told Digital Spy she had not heard anything about the new season yet.
Anyhow, director Samuel Deats revealed they are now into Season 4 production and "everything is going smoothly." So, when will the new season be out?
Netflix has yet to announce the official release date of Castlevania Season 4. But, it is expected to drop in the summer of 2021.
Based on the previous seasons' release, there was a 15-month gap between Season 1 and Season 2 and another 16-month wait before Season 3 came out. If this would be followed, there is a strong chance that fans will see the new season next year.
With the recent release of Blood of Zeus, TechRadar considered it as a "stop-gap series" while fans are waiting for Castlevania Season 4. Although it has the same art style, knowing they are from the same studio, Powerhouse Animation Studios, it is not Castlevania at all.
It is both driven by mythology and has the same plot, like the demons scattered across the land, but it still differs. Castlevania has a more complex characterization.
Its figures slowly transform as a result of their own actions. It delicately pokes their "own doubts and hopes" that can be seen in between its action-packed scenes. These things and more can't be seen in Blood of Zeus.
