Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

we see him tell bluefangs that demons cannot enter a house of god

now, obviously the bishop was an evil bastard who cannot be trusted to be a man of true belief and he shouldn't entirely take him at his word, but the immediacy with which he refers to this suggests that the very idea of unholy creatures entering a church is something unheard-of -- presumably because, like the above instances, a church is consecrated ground and would kill demons just as well as a blessed whip

bluefangs also seems to confirm this premise by responding that said church is "an empty box"

now obviously he could just as easily be mocking the bishop and i think largely this is what he's doing, but with all the above information i also choose to believe there's a small ring of truth to the statement, in that yes, in a non-horrifyingly-corrupt setting a demon entering a "true" church's grounds would be cause for pain and/or death but the absence of any god in that particular church (due to the actions of the bishop "making [god] puke" causing any former holiness of the site to dry up like a well in the desert) eliminates this risk

the above is very much a bit of a stretch and i'm relying on it because it just happens to enforce my interpretation, but i also do willingly concede it's just as likely to be true that bluefangs was simply mocking the bishop's empty words

Season 4 has been confirmed, wouldn’t expect it to come any time soon though.  At least we’ve got 22 episodes of Castlevania goodness to rewatch as many times as we feel until then.

Happy about the announcement. Season 3 had its ups and downs but mostly felt like it was preparing for something more. I hope they don't make too many seasons and that season 4 can bring a satisfying conclusion to the series. Hoping for more CoD elements!

Will I think the show could be much better and there are many things wrong with it, I do think a Season 4 is a good idea. It's flawed, but not bad. However, Season 4 should be the last. Dragging things out too long is the death of every piece of medium.

Sorry but how is this being dragged out too far?  When so far only one of the Belmonts has been been covered so far?  World building and taking its time to unfurl a story and something going on past it’s time are different things.  Yes the series isn’t without flaws including on pacing, but this series has much more story to tell.

I could go as many as five seasons if they devote enough runtime in S4 to Hector escaping his imprisonment, meeting Rosalie, and falling in love before Isaac finds them. Finish season 4 off with her murder, and make Season 5 into a sort of broad-strokes adaptation of Curse of Darkness with Trevor and Sypha in a diminished role and with Hector as the lead.

This is the hill I will die on.

I want Hector turned into the badass he was in the Iga timeline and there's still room to do this thing.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

It's not too much yet. But given the track record of pretty much every piece of media released these days, it easily could go in that direction. If Star Wars has taught us anything, it's that things go *very* bad, if they go on for too long.

I could go as many as five seasons if they devote enough runtime in S4 to Hector escaping his imprisonment, meeting Rosalie, and falling in love before Isaac finds them. Finish season 4 off with her murder, and make Season 5 into a sort of broad-strokes adaptation of Curse of Darkness with Trevor and Sypha in a diminished role and with Hector as the lead.

I could see that happenening. That would be nice, though if they actually go there is another matter entirely. I still hope the plans for a kind of Bootleg-Universe will never come to pass, because that would likely mess up any kind of future content following the Castlevania canon even remotely.

Not necessarily.  It depends on how it’s handled.  If it’s a connection via the Infinite Corridor, for example, the two series could easily stay separate but connected in a multiverse manner.  You’re honestly coming across as let’s cancel this all now in case it goes bad, wah wah wah everything goes bad.  You’re coming across overly pessimistic and a bit of a stick in the mud.  Yes, this isn’t everyone’s cup of tea.  But it is for plenty of others.  But just because some people don’t like it doesn’t mean it has to be cancelled.  If you don’t like it, then don’t watch it.  It’s that simple.

It seems you completely missed the part in which I said that I want the series to continue and that I like it, despite it's flaws. All I'm saying is that it shouldn't continue for like seven more seasons. It doesn't even have to be "just" one more season and I never said anything about it needing to be cancelled now before it turns bad. I'd thank you for not putting words in my mouth.
