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 Tepes himself. In Season 1, Trevor Belmont, embittered and excommunicated, finds himself drawn into a battle for the survival of Europe – a region that has brought doom upon itself by taking away the one thing its greatest monster loved.
“With its dark, multi-layered storyline filled with demons, magic, and action, CASTLEVANIA has established itself as a series that adeptly expands the original premise of the classic video game,” says Brian Ige, VIZ Media’s Vice President of Animation. “We look forward to the series being a highlight on many fans’ holiday wish lists this season.”
