The new era of the anime franchise is coming to the streaming platform in late September

Castlevania: Nocturne, the sequel to the anime based on Konami’s video game franchise, is set to arrive on Netflix to usher in a new era. The series is tasked with repeating the success of its predecessor, but posing a new setting, a new protagonist and a new creative team behind the scenes.

This Thursday, Netflix shared an extended trailer loaded with blood, action and monsters ahead of the premiere on September 28 that offers a glimpse of the magical allies of Richter Belmont, the main character, and a series of vampire aristocrats.

Castlevania: Nocturne is set more than 300 years after the events of the original series and will follow Ritcher, the last living descendant of Trevor and Sypha Belmont. The new trailer doesn’t spend much time on introductions, instead focusing on the series’ emphasis on fast-paced, violent action sequences. For fans of the video game saga, there’s even a clip of an orchestral version of the Divine Bloodlines theme song that introduced the character of Richter Belmont in the 1993 version.

This new series will feature Clive Bradley as showrunner and Kevin Kolde as producer, as the man who served as executive producer on the previous Castlevania series is involved in other video game-related projects, such as the animated adaptations of Hyper Light Drifter and PUBG.
