    Netflix Castlevania Animated Series - 2017

    Castlevania Season 1, Part 1 Coming to Netflix in 2017

    We have a project right now that we’re doing that needs to go unnamed, based on one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years, that we’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started. But there were great characters and a great story, and eventually we got it going.
    Dredd producer Adi Shankar already broke the news:
    Breaking News: I’m producing a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. It’s going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.

    BREAKING NEWS:
    Castlevania is a Netflix Original Series with Season 1 launching in 2017 and Season 2 in 2018. Furthermore, I personally guarantee that it will end the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation.

    P.S.S. Kevin Kolde is the man and Seasons 1 & 2 were written by Warren f’ing Ellis.
    hmm looks like it's only a two seasons show.

    I have faith with it being a Netflix original series and it being animated.

    Bored in a meeting...

    Belmont: Die, monster! You don't belong in this world!

    Vlad Tepes Dracula: It was not by my hand that I am once again given screentime! I was called here by /humans/ who wish to pay me tribute!

    Belmont: Tribute? You steal the fanbase, and make them your slaves!

    Dracula: I suppose the same could be said of all other shows...

    Belmont: Your words are as empty as your soul! Mankind ill needs entertainment such as you!

    Dracula: What is a man? A miserable little pile of memes! But enough talk... Have at you!

    The satirical part as quoted in the OP is what worries me most. Just gives the feeling they'll try to make fun of Twilight and the related vampire craze, probably poke fun at the game's mechanics (like chicken restoring health, etc.), and just be stupid over the top with blood/gore.

    Warren Ellis wrote out a treatment for Castlevania like a decade ago, and that's supposedly what they're using for this. So the basis for the story is well before the Twilight craze
