All of us have been eagerly waiting for the fourth season of the splendid animated show Castlevania, based on the Japanese video game series by Konami. It is one of the best-animated shows on Netflix.

The previous season ended excitingly, opening several new plot lines to pursue and leaving fans with many questions, for instance, we saw Alucard impaling Sumi and Taka, but what comes next? Trevor and Sypha helped in defeating the cult at Lindenfeld and closed the Infinite Corridor, Besides, they learned the truth of the Judge, who had been killing children. Where will the story take them next? Will Carmilla take over Wallachia?

Castlevania Season 4 Release Date

Netflix hasn’t given any confirmation on the premiere of Castlevania Season 4. On March 27, 2020, Netflix announced that Castlevania was going to return. Besides a few teasers from the crew, nothing has been revealed.

The Executive Producer, Adi Shankar, is currently working on “Devil May Cry,” which could cause a delay in the release.

Looking at past trends, the seasons tend to have a gap of 15-16 months between them, justified by the animation’s intricate detailing. So season 4 should be out around the second half of 2021.
