Netflix is continuing its foray into anime with the announcement that the popular animated series Castlevania is returning with all new episodes later this year.
Powerhouse Animation teased a big announcement at this year’s Anime Expo 2018 and Castlevania showrunner Adi Shankar decided to tell fans when the series would return for its second season.

The animated series is from Frederator Studios, a Wow! Unlimited Media company, written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.”
“As Netflix has grown around the world we have been astounded by the broad reach and great depth of anime fandom,” said Netflix’s director of content for Japan and anime. ” We are partnering with the best global creators to produce a diverse slate of shows that we hope will excite the boundless passion of anime fans and make Netflix a premier destination for this beloved art form.”
