Netflix anuncia série televisiva baseada no jogo Castlevania

Castlevania é uma série de videojogos desenvolvidos pela Konami. A Netflix anunciou que irá lançar uma série televisiva baseada neste franchise e promete que será bem sangrenta.

The news was buried within a press release sent out after an event for the network’s upcoming slate of new series, which was held in New York City. Although Netflix didn’t announce who would executive produce the Castlevania series, but Adi Shankar (producer on Dredd) confirmed on Facebook he would be co-running the series. The first part of the first season is expected to be released this year. Acclaimed writer Warren Ellis (Transmetropolitan, Iron Man) has reportedly written the first season.

Prior to the announcement animator Michael Hirsh told the Globe and Mail that his new studio, Wow Unlimited Media, would be teaming with Netflix to create the animated series. According to Hirsh, the show will be targeted towards a younger audience, which is interesting considering Shankar described the show as dark and satirical, with the intention to “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.”

A Netflix tem conseguido surpreender pela excelente qualidade das séries que produz. Vamos ver se consegue manter a qualidade com esta nova série.
