Castlevania came to an end after four good seasons. In the world of Netflix originals, Castlevania easily stands at the top 5 best ones. The series was based on a video game by the same name. Although the series was going quite fine, it had to come to a quick wrap after the allegations of sexual misconduct against Warren Ellis, the scriptwriter of the series. However, Castlevania despite the scandals gained massive support and positive feedback from fans. After the series had come to an end, fans were immediately dejected. However, yet another good news came knocking around. Castlevania spin-off is officially announced now. No more brooding over the end of your series because there is more to it.
The spin-off was indicated during the release of Castlevania season 4. However, the official announcement came in sooner than we had expected. The series will be set in the same universe, as previously announced. After the success of Castlevania, fans have high expectations from this series as well. Given that Warren Ellis will not be working on the new series, there are still questions about how it will impact production. The storytelling ability was widely appreciated in the Castlevania series. How the series will change or remain is a curious matter.
