The new trailer looks good, but I'm afraid that, with no Dracula or the threat of him returning, the series will fall very short of what it should be. Dracula is the main character of Castlevania and the story is focused on him. Removing him from that equation is to cut out the soul of the franchise. Characters like Carmilla or Isaac are simply not enough to hold it on their own.

I honestly expect they might throw in a surprise and have Dracula resurrect at the end of the season, or they will be moving towards setting into motion a series take on Curse of Darkness, like I said previously.  If this shows the way that Isaac descends into madness the way he seems to flip from the CoD manga to how he is in the game, it should be interesting.  That line he utters “One day, Hell will be emptied, and its doors will rattle in the wind,” is brilliant.   I honestly doubt the show will remain Dracula-less for all that long.  It’s also nice seeing how the monster menagerie looks a lot bigger and more varied this season, much more like what we expect in Castlevania.  It’s bugging me though where I know that symbol that Trevor is stood on from.

Dracula is absent from the world 100 years at a time.  I don’t mind seeing what the world’s like during his absence.  But he always has his followers. 

With all this evil not staying dead, wonder if we’ll ever see Godbrand again.

So, that symbol that Trevor’s stood on at points in the trailer, which has been nagging me for a couple of days.  It’s the Leviathan Cross, which is the alchemical symbol for black sulfur, i.e brimstone and Hell.  It was also adopted by Le Vey Satanism, from which it gets referred to as a Satanic cross.

What D9 said.  It’s Castlevania.  Even when Dracula is killed, he always finds a way back.  Aid Shankar and the Deats brothers are too big fans to completely ignore this central pillar of the games’ plots.  As far as I’m concerned, all of the scheming and mechanisations of other villainous characters is giving them room to breathe and grow, rather than just having them appear out of nowhere with little given motivation or ambition beyond “Hey, let’s resurrect Dracula!”.  It makes for very two dimensional and uninteresting characters.  Besides, from the poster itself, there’s a guy that resembles a re-designed St Germaine who didn’t show up in the trailer from what we can see, which, together with Hector and Isaac being present, suggests we are heading towards a take on Curse of Darkness, and thus Dracula getting resurrected a few years after Trevor and co take him down.  Why include the devil forgemasters to begin with if a CoD related adaptation wasn’t on the cards?

New tweet from Ellis gives us our cast for second 3.

https://twitter.com/warrenellis/status/1230538925460119554

Bill Nighy will voice St. Germaine
Jason Isaacs will voice a character called The Judge (possible Zead/Death hint?)

No character named Laura.
Suddenly a bunch more characters we likely won't give a shit about.

I kinda wish they would go back to the Trevor Stark design. Something about the all black Trevor Neo design is weird.

Or Trevor Belmont I guess. That would work too.

I should add that's pretty cool they're putting St. Germain in though!

I got excited because for I second I thought you meant the Science Guy and just made a typo.

Woohoo!  Glad my guess about St Germaine showing up was right, which suggests we should be having some COD elements.  I agree though that Isaacs’ character seems to be very Zead-y.  I’m surprised they didn’t have Laura show up.  Even if McTavish returns they wouldn’t say now.

Aww, no Grant or Laura.  I’m finding it hard to believe Grant might still appear in a fourth season, since I would think the plot would have moved on to the next Belmont by then, but who knows.  With St. Germaine in play, I wonder if we’ll ever see any “flash forwards” to later Belmonts.

Interesting that they’re including San German; i just hope they don’t drastically change his character since his persona was one of my favorite aspects of Curse of Darkness

I think Reinhart77 brings up a good point. Lament of Innocence has already been semi-confirmed to be “canon” in this universe with the inclusion of Leon’s portrait in an episode, which an argument can be made that Dracula’s original identity in this universe is still Matthias. However they have already took several liberties so they may just be picking & choosing what to include/what to ignore
