Looks like they announced a season four. I didn't watch all of season three though.

New poster to go with that announcement.

Unlike previous posters, there’s no new characters for us to guess who they are.  Maybe all we’ll ever get of Grant is a reference to some crazy pirate of the roads.

I hope they nail it out of the park. I’m aware that the previous seasons haven’t been so well-received by fans, but I enjoyed it for what it was. It’s different, there were a lot of things I disagreed with, but in the end I didn’t lose any sleep over any of their decisions. They’re taking a different approach with the mythos & I respect that, moreso than what MercurySteam did with their iteration of the saga.

Hector needs to man up & stand up for himself, he has significant power that was said to rival Death himself (at least in the games). Speaking of which, the Grim Reaper has yet to appear. I hope they include him in Dracula’s resurrection, he can be a truly wicked force if done right moreso than Carmilla.

Isaac, I’m indifferent towards him,  but I’m still unsure if they’re going to use him to be the vessel of Dracula like they did in the games. His devotion is there, but who knows

As for Alucard, his mindstate is very unstable but I don’t think it’ll stay that way, Trevor and/or Sypha will convince him to reject his heritage & he’ll be “good” once again I’m sure

Lastly, I hope Grant makes an appearance. Dunno why he was omitted from the first 3 seasons, but he should at least play a role of some kind. Even if it’s just pointing Trevor/Alucard/Sypha in the right direction, his exclusion made no sense. And I’m not even a fan of his but I still acknowledge his role in the story, so the writers should do him justice too

Same.  The first two seasons were a mixed bag and then I heard... enough about the third season to know I wouldn't like it.

I keep going between phases of "Yeah it's kinda cool" and "Fuck this travesty". I mean, animation and fanserice are cool, but my god did that fucker mess the story up. It's another universe, yeah cool, but even then it doesn't exactly work.
(Speaking of Ellis, is he still the writter after that controversy last year?)
But hey, there are days when I can overlook that and just enjoy the action.

Ellis has been fired.  Based on comments from Sam Deats on Twitter, it looks like they will be moving to a new generation of Belmonts.  He also hinted to not rule out Alucard, which is good.

Huh, that's good news I guess. The rest of the team seems real passionate about the games. I'm just wondering how they'll wrap it up given that Ellisvania universe is different than the games. I'm hoping that they'll stick a bit closer to the series now that he's out of the picture but then again they can't just change it up too drasticaly since the series is the first exposure to Castlevania for many of its fans.

I rather liked all three seasons, to be honest. Third season was weird but has potential to go somewhere with season four.

It is said that the next iteration will cover a different point in the timeline. I hope they feature Christiphen Belmont and his son Cirque du Soleil. There is a 15 year gap between CVAdventure & Revenge of Belmont, where Dracula is still alive, albeit weakened. They can do a lot with that time frame

It would be great if they picked up on Christopher’s era next, but I’m not sure if they or the audience has the patience to wait until the days of Simon or Symphony of the Night.  I wouldn’t mind a trip backwards to Leon’s day.  Maybe they’ll pull a Lords of Shadow and take it to modern times.  I’d be pretty surprised if it wasn’t one of those options.  Wonder how different the art style and tone might be, assuming they go through with it.  Dracula might end up looking as different as he does between games.

Doing CV1 and Simon's Quest makes sense for at least 2 seasons. Then, rolling into Rondo and then SotN to bring back Alucard and maybe set the stage for 1999 and Aria. So far though, Sam Deats has proven to be a true Castlevania fan with all the easter eggs, so has critical of the series as I've been so far, I'm excited to see what happens from here.

I'f I had to put my bets it'd be either Simon or Alucard, Richter being the wild card. They're (afaik) fan favourites and producers know that.
