Producer Adi Shankar excitedly shared the decision to green-light the third season of the animated adaptation of video game classic “Castlevania.”

Shankar tweeted the good news on Nov. 1 and thanked the fans and Netflix for “a dream come true.”

The producer continued on the tweet thread how scriptwriter Warren Ellis had been one of his biggest artistic influences. He also believed Ellis’ work brought the characters to life and gave depth to every scene. Shankar also gave a shout-out to director Sam Deats, whom he called “a student of the game and he’s become a master.”

Shankar also upped the bar of expectation after the eight-episode second season received positive response from the audience.

He then pointed out that games and cartoons aren’t just for children. Shankar considered it “an art form of immense sophistication.” Considering the gore and bloodshed in the show, not to mention the mature theme of grief and loss, “Castlevania” is definitely not a cartoon parents should leave their kids with.

Animation distributor Wow! Unlimited Media confirmed in a statement that the third season will have a total of 10 episodes. With more episodes to work with to weave the new “Castlevania” story, fans may be inclined to expect that Emmy Shankar mentioned in his tweet.

“Castlevania” began streaming on Netflix on July 7, 2017, with just four episodes. It served as an introduction to the series and the characters Trevor Belmont, Alucard and Sypha Belnades. The series was based on Konami’s 1989 game “Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse.”

The second season, which streamed on Oct. 26. 2018, includes eight episodes and contains more action scenes as the story builds up to the final confrontation at Dracula’s castle.  /ra
