For those who have been watching the Netflix adaptation of Castlevania and enjoying it, you have writer Warren Ellis to thank. The comic book veteran scribe has been doing a masterful job penning the tales of Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, and Alucard. Witty dialogue and clever character beats make the series a joy to behold, and thankfully Ellis and company’s hard work is paying off as fans will be able to enjoy a fourth season of the show.

Writing on his website, here’s a snippet of what Ellis had to say about the news:

“So, we had our Netflix call about the 28-day data on CASTLEVANIA Season 3 last week. And, because Netflix data is protected, I can’t actually tell you all the exact numbers. What I can say is that season 3’s popularity was an order of magnitude over that of season 2, and season 2 was popular enough to get us season 3. It turns out season 3 did, really, shockingly well. Shows tend to show a little attrition in the third season, and it was, quote, “unusual” to see the audience actually rise by a multiple factor.

Season three was in the Netflix Top 10 — not for animation, not for tv, but for all Netflix content — for a week or two in 40 countries. That was huge. Thanks to everyone in the world who posted screenshots of their local Top 10 banner, by the way — all of you joining in to share that made it pretty easy to calculate, and it was wondrous to see them all rolling in.”

Click the link above for the rest of Ellis’ thoughts (although, like the show, not all of the content is for kids!). There’s no release date or window for season 4, and while Ellis notes that fans shouldn’t “expect too much of a covid-related delay,” odds are high that Castlevania probably won’t be back until well into 2021.
