While Netflix has cashed in big with its animated Castlevania series for more than a few years now, the episodic series is to conclude coming this May. In an abrupt announcement earlier this past week, Castlevania Season 4 is to arrive delivering the last helping of content for its viewers for one last time. Following, it is presumed that the firm will tackle its bevy of other projects elsewhere.

But, a new report from Deadline suggests that Netflix is not entirely done with its grip on Konami’s Castlevania just yet. In the piece, it is disclosed that Netflix is looking to expand the series with a new show that casts new characters for the potential endeavor. Additionally, it is also suggested that creator Warren Ellis for the original series is not involved with the new project either.

As to what could possibly be anticipated from Netflix officially following the conclusion for Castlevania is two projects. One being Devil May Cry: executive producer Adi Shankar announced in late 2018 to be pursuing the production as he will be showrunning the project. However, neither Netflix nor Shankar has pressed on the status of the series,

Additionally, Shankar is also reported to be involved as an executive producer for an upcoming Far Cry series at Netflix as well. Titled ‘Captain Laserhawk: A Blood Dragon Vibe’, the coming Netflix series is indicated to aim for the young adult demographic. But by the timing of the report, it is implicated that the Devil May Cry project will surface ahead of the latter. You can read the full report by heading here.

What do you hope will come following the Castlevania series ending next month on Netflix?
