Love the trailer but a bit dissapointed its not following a new generation or something. The second season had a very definitive "This is the end for these characters" kind of feel.

I still think about THAT fight in season 2. I watch it every now and then cause I love the Bloody Tears arrangement and it was a pretty damn cool battle.
I wish Netflix would share that rendition of bloody tears. its so good and I'm so mad I don't have a good way of listening to it besides just rewatching that scene.

So is this season based off Curse of Darkness, or is it doing its own thing?
Hector and Isaac are in it, so presumably it will include bits of CoD but also be its own thing, similar to how season 1 and 2 were basically "CV3: With More Stuff".

I thought Season 2 (or really the second half of season 1) was a fitting finale?

Where do they go from here?
Hector getting free from Carmilla, Isaac's revenge against the world, and eventually Dracula's resurrection when the next Belmonts come around. Eventually Richter and SotN.

Haven't played a single CV game, so no idea about the wider lore.

If these characters you mention are in Season 1&2, then I think that proves I need to go back and re-watch (which incidentally is great, since I've been looking for something to watch).

BRB, gonna go indulge myself.

Have the creators talked about potentially doing other timelines at all?
Like alternate timelines? No. Adapting other Belmonts or other Castlevania games? There have been hints but they're being cagey about it on purpose thus far.

Yeah, Hector is the silver-haired Devil Forgemaster and Isaac was the guy who really likes torturing himself. You should remember them, they're both pretty heavily featured in season 2 and Isaac was the stinger scene at the end of the finale.

I can't remember anything about the first two seasons, but mostly because I watched Sirius the Jaegar straight afterwards and now my brain seems to have muddled them both up together. lol

The monk(s) look cool. Coming in hard with the flip!

Was General Chō ever specifically stated to be Japanese, despite her name? The monks appear to be Shaolin-like, which isn't really in the same neck of the woods. Then again, the monk seems to be fighting against a Samurai-like vampire who appears to be wearing a Kabuki mask.

That trailer looks so fucking good, omg.

Never played the games, but fell in love with this series since Season 1 and it hasn't disappointed since!

As much as I like the last two seasons, I hope the cast gets to be more proactive this time. Hanging around in the Belmont library for episodes on end sucked all the momentum out of the story on the hero side, no matter how good the banter was.

If you've never played any Castlevania games and have a PS4 you should grab the Dracula X Collection (Castlevania Requiem or something?) on PSN. Two of the best games in the series bundled together.

Symphony of the Night is one of my favorite games of all time. Like by a pretty wide margin.

I have been super happy with how this series has turned out. It can have gone terribly in so many ways, but the fact that it's been so entertaining and that I've been following the development speaks of a lot to me about how well this has turned out.

Hoping that this will also rejuvenatre interest in doing other animated series on classic video game franchises. Mega Man Legends... A man can dream.

Was kinda disappointed that season 3 was still gonna be following Trevor and crew at first, but that trailer really looks fantastic. I'm all in

Only one thing about changing casts for a new Belmont is that could end up making a bunch of people drop the show. Since people have grown to love these characters so to suddenly potentially have none of them in it could make it cold to people.

Where do they go from here?
Chronogically Curse of Darkness is next after Castlevania III, however it seems they're taking some liberties as Alucard and Sypha didn't show up on it and Trevor was a side character. Grant never really showed up on the first two seasons, so yeah.

Hector getting free from Carmilla, Isaac's revenge against the world, and eventually Dracula's resurrection when the next Belmonts come around. Eventually Richter and SotN.
Would they really skip Christopher, Simon(specially him) and Juste and go straight for Richter? What about Leon which was already mentioned on previous seasons?

Leon would be a prequel story, there's no real reason to dwell on him.

I'm gonna be honest, I really don't see a point in adapting every Belmont. They aren't distinct enough to be worth it, and it would just increase the chances of the show getting cancelled before SotN.

Loving the better use of the Beastiary in some of those shots. The monsters are my favorite part of the series, so I was bummed when S1 and LoS just used generic baddies.

Trevor didn't really have much of a distinct anything until Curse of Darkness and even there he wasn't the main guy, they can make them different if they want. I doubt they'll skip Simon.

I could see them doing something interesting with Christopher, as it's around that time the Bartley family plays a role in the mythos of the series. It's around this time that Carmilla becomes a servant for Dracula instead of being a sort of rogue vampire, too.

I actually think they're not going to jump to different times and instead focus on a story that tends to blend Dracula's Curse, Curse of Darkness, and their original stuff together. Netflix is known to shoot series in the kneecaps, so we shouldn't begin fantasizing a full timeline of animated scenarios.
