Netflix's Castlevania executive producer says the series 'really over-performed,' third season got greenlit immediately

Adi Shankar is the executive producer on Netflix's Castlevania series, and a couple weeks back, we learned that Season 3 is on the way. In an interview with IGN, Shankar talks about just how successful the series has been thus far.

"It really over-performed. It did crazy well. We immediately got greenlit for Season 3. I wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for the fans."

The art of Netflix's Castlevania

Netflix's Castlevania is pitch-perfect in a lot of ways, and one of those is the art direction. The series has some fantastic character design and backdrops. Some of that content doesn't appear on-screen for more than a few seconds, but it's well worth giving a good once-over. If you're looking to get a better peek at some of that content, including backgrounds and animation tests, make sure to check out this post.

Castlevania showrunner explains why season 3 of the show will have 10 episodes

Season 2 of the Netflix Castlevania series just came out a few days back, and we're already talking about Season 3. The existence of Season 3 was confirmed shortly after Season 2 debuted, and we learned it would feature 10 episodes. Why was 10 the magic number? Showrunner Adi Shankar explained in an interview with Kotaku.

For season three we specifically, asked for ten episodes because we knew we needed that to tell the story we want… I can’t stand those shows that have ideas for new seasons but you get there and go “What? You should have got there four seasons ago!”

Mondo releasing Castlevania: Rondo of Blood vinyl soundtrack

CASTLEVANIA: RONDO OF BLOOD / DRACULA X - ORIGINAL VIDEO GAME SOUNDTRACK 2XLP. Music by Konami Kukeiha Club. Artwork by Oliver Barrett. Pressed on 2X 180 Gram Colored vinyl (Disc 1: Blue with Black Splatter and Disc 2: Red with Black Splatter). Expected to Ship Early November 2018. $35

Mondo is thrilled to premiere the next in our on-going CASTLEVANIA soundtrack series with the PC-Engine title CASTLEVANIA: RONDO OF BLOOD, and the game's Super Nintendo port CASTLEVANIA: DRACULA X.

Originally released only in Japan on the PC-Engine (a system known in the US as the TurboGrafx-16), RONDO OF BLOOD is one of the most widely missed chapters of the CASTLEVANIA saga. Better known now as the "prequel" to the hugely popular and influential title CASTLEVANIA: SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT (the first level of which is a re-creation of the final battle of RONDO OF BLOOD). The story follows Richter Belmont, descendent of Simon and Trevor, on his journey to save his girlfriend and her little sister Maria from the clutches of Dracula.

The game was eventually ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System a few years later but due to the limitations of the hardware, the port of RONDO OF BLOOD was re-made and re-named CASTLEVANIA: DRACULA X - a streamlined and more linear version of the game, featuring a soundtrack better suited to the system's capabilities.

Featuring artwork by Oliver Barrett and pressed on 2X 180 Gram vinyl (Disc 1: Blue with Black Splatter and Disc 2: Red with Black Splatter).
