Castlevania: Nocturne was a highly-anticipated sequel to Castlevania.

Kevin Kolde teased the characters who were going to appear in the sequel.

Nocturne does justice to the Castlevania franchise.

The first Castlevania animated series on Netflix was exceptional because it skillfully blended quiet, exquisitely rendered moments of human drama with dramatic action set pieces that were striking enough to make viewers feel as though they were playing the original Konami game.

The videogame franchise of the same name, which has produced games, comic books, and television shows is expanded upon by this adult animated dark fantasy series. The only TV adaptations of the games are the Netflix series, both of which have received positive reviews and admiration from fans.

Castlevania: Nocturne season 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the Netflix video game adaptation animated series.

Castlevania: Nocturne Co-Showrunner Teased The Characters Who Appeared In The Show

In an interview with Collider, co-showrunner Kevin Kolde and directors Sam and Adam Deats teased upcoming developments for the Castlevania spin-off, indicating that they have a good concept of what they want to see happen.

During the interview, the trio stated that they were particularly thrilled to have Juste Belmont in the list of characters. The senior Belmont family member undoubtedly increased the amount of strife, particularly in his dealings with his heir, Richter.

Kolde also talked about other important characters in the upcoming seasons, as he explained:

We talk about Dracula a lot. But I think Dracula is one of those things that you talk about a lot because, if you’re going to do it, you’ve got to do it right.

His story ended in such a satisfying way. If we were going to go beyond that, it would need super thoughtful care. So, I don’t know. We’ll focus on Alucard and Juste, and continue to have Dracula chats.

As Kolde previously said, near the very end of Castlevania: Nocturne, Alucard made an unexpected comeback in the form of a cameo. Therefore, until it’s eventually time to introduce (or re-introduce) more characters to the spinoff series, we’ll have to wait and see how his connection with Richter and his companions plays out while we allow the vampire presence to sink in.

Nocturne raises the bar high by challenging your perception of what it means to fight for freedom, equality, and fraternity by utilizing the franchise’s renowned backstory. While it could have easily settled and coasted on old Castlevania vibes, the new show steps up its game considerably.

Castlevania: Nocturne takes place hundreds of years after the events of Netflix’s original Castlevania series, with Richter Belmont traveling to France in pursuit of vampires and retribution. The story takes place in the late 18th century, right in the middle of the French Revolution.

Nocturne follows the same narrative as the first Castlevania series, but it also incorporates significant story points from Konami’s Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night video games to tell an engrossing tale about the underlying hypocrisies that have been ingrained into the history of colonial nations adopting democratic revolution.
