Netflix's Castlevania is getting a spin-off series set during the French Revolution

Starring Richter Belmont and Maria Renard.

Netflix's animated adaptation of legendary video game series Castlevania is now at the end of its acclaimed four-season run, and fans have been wondering what comes next. Today brings answer: more Castlevania, but different.

Castlevania's future on Netflix was left in doubt when the streaming service opted to wind up the series in its current guise after showrunner Warren Ellis departed from the show following allegations of sexual misconduct. However, subsequent rumours suggested a spin-off was in the works, and Netflix has now made that official.

With Castlevania's current run now concluded, Netflix is working on a brand-new series that will take Richter Belmont (a distant descendant of original series leads Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belndaes) and Maria Renard - both familiar characters to game fans - to 1792 France for an adventure that unfolds against the backdrop of the French Revolution.

Clive Bradley is confirmed as the writer and showrunner for the currently unnamed new series, with Sam and Adam Deats on directorial duties. Powerhouse Animation, which worked on the original animated Castlevania series, will return for this follow-up.

There's no hint of a release window for Castlevania's new Netflix spin-off at present, but the streaming service will doubtless have more to share in due course.
