Fans got really excited last year, when fimmaker Adi Shankar announced that her was working on an R-Rated animated series based on the classic Nintendo game, Castlevania. In fact, there really hasn’t been much news on the announcement since he first made it.

That all changed just a couple of hours ago when Shankar, who is best known for his Bootleg universe, and his involvement in films like Dredd, and The Gray, took to FaceBook to announce that there are two seasons planned for the series. He announced that they’ll be airing on Netflix (season 1 in 2017 and 2 in 2018), and in a bit of news that is sure to make a lot of fans happy, the entire series was written by Warren Ellis!

Castlevania is a Netflix Original Series with Season 1 launching in 2017 and Season 2 in 2018. Furthermore, I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation.
P.S. A.V. Club, stop saying mean s**t about me.
P.S.S. Kevin Kolde is the man and Seasons 1 & 2 were written by Warren f’ing Ellis.
