Castlevania getting a third season on Netflix, new details on the upcoming second season

Castlevania's second season on Netflix hasn't aired yet, but that hasn't stopped the news of a third season coming out. Looks like Netflix gave the green light to another set of episodes, as confirmed by Richard Armitage, voice actor for Trevor Belmont.

"We're about to record a third. The second season hasn't been aired yet, but we're about to do a third."

Armitage went on to share some details about the second season, which should be hitting Netflix somewhat soon.

"The son of Dracula [Adrian Tepes, voiced by James Callis] and my character get much more collaborative. I think that's one of the most exciting things, they start to really work together."

Armitage ended things by saying how he'd love to take Trevor and portray the role in a live-action adaptation.

"I love my character in Castlevania... he's this anti-heroic, drunk, slightly foul-mouthed, irritable git! I feel like it would make the most brilliant live-action piece. It's slightly anarchic and humorous – we don't often see vampire heroics in that vein. One day, maybe."
