New poster and March 5 release date for Castlevania Season 3 emerges

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Sharpen your stakes, polish your crucifix, and order yourself a couple of Roasted Garlic pizzas from your parlor of choice, because we now have an official release date for the third season season of Netflix's CASTLEVANIA series.

When the show returns on March 5, the video game turned stylish anime series will spring back into action with a total of 10 episodes! That's almost as many episodes as the first two seasons combined! You do know what that means, don't you? Ten chapters of vampire drama! Ten episodes of arcane magicks making a mockery of religion and science! Ten episodes of bloodlust that has boiled and churned throughout the ages! I don't know about you, but that sounds like a hell of a good time to me!

News of CASTLEVANIA's grand return arrived courtesy of a tweet by the show's director Samuel Deats. In addition to sharing the official release date, Deats also debuted a new poster for the upcoming season:

Here's an official synopsis for the show:

"Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar."

CASTLEVANIA stars Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont, James Callis as Alucard, Alejandra Reynoso as Syphia Belnades, and Graham McTavish as the one and only Dracula.

If you're a fan of the Castlevania video game series, but have yet to take a stab the Powerhouse Animation series, I highly recommend that you do just that. The show is filled with nods to the game lore, and features many of the iconic characters that've secured Castlevania as one of the best action-adventure games series of all time. As a fan of the series ever since the first game's 1986 release, I can promise you that the show is not to be missed.
