A Castlevania show is coming to Netflix this year

Netflix is adding a show based on the Castlevania series to its lineup this year. The news, reported by io9 , amounts to a single line of confirmation in a Netflix press release: “ Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017.” There’s no word on whether that means a live-action adaption or an anime, though the guy behind the gritty Power Rangers reboot , Adi Shankar, has talked on Facebook and with Collider about working on a “super-violent Castlevania mini-series.” Shankar previously said the story would be based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse .
