Adapting a video game series to a different medium has led to mixed results at best. One adaption that seemed to be successful was Castlevania. Castlevania debuted on Netflix last year and received positive reception. A second season seemed inevitable but now we know that Season two of Castlevania will premiere on October 26th.

The announcement comes from both series writer Warren Ellis Twitter Account and the Castlevania Twitter Account. Both accounts shared screenshots of the upcoming season while confirming the October 26th premiere. The announcements comes almost a year after the first season premiered. Other than continuing the story from the first season, not much is known yet about the new season. Both Twitter accounts did release some images. Also, while the first season had four episodes, it has been confirmed that the second will have eight episodes.
We reviewed the first season of Castlevania with mostly positive things to say. While I we felt the limited amount of episodes made the season feel rushed, Netflix had seemed to have done the impossible by adapting a video game series to TV and it actually turns out well. What did you think of the first season of Castlevania? Are you excited for Season two? For anything else on Castlevania, stay tuned to us here at Gamer Professionals.
