Yesterday, Netflix gifted us the season four poster for Castlevania and then today, they dropped a trailer. But just as I was dancing in the streets, they ripped my excitement from under me. You see, season four will be the final season of Castlevania. Now I know all good things must come to an end. But that doesn’t mean I can’t be upset when they do! This series has been such a wild ride from the moment it was released in 2017. And while normally I would argue we need more content, I think that ending this now is a good idea.

You see, season one introduced us to our main characters, Trevor Belmont (Richard Armitage), Alucard (James Callis) and Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso) and the big bad guy Dracula (Graham McTavish). In four episodes, they also introduced this amazing world and storyline that we saw come to life within season two. We then saw the fight between good and evil in the form of our three heroes and Darcula and his army going toe to toe. And in the end, we got a pretty satisfying ending to the Dracula story and enough cliffhangers to lead us into season three.

But I have noticed there is a pattern to the Castlevania series. We have a season that sets everything up and then a season that sees everything finished. Season three did exactly what season one did but arguably better. It introduced new characters in the form of Carmilla’s (Jamie Murray) sister vampires Striga (Ivana Milicevic), Morana (Yasmine Al Massri) and Lenore (Jessica Brown Findlay). We saw the army they are trying to build and their plans for world domination. We also saw the build-up of Isaac’s (Adetokumboh M’Cormack) revenge towards Hector (Theo James), which leads us to question how their story will pan out since Hector is under Lenore’s control now.

Season three brought us all of this information and that isn’t even touching on Trevor, Alucard and Sypha’s side of the story! We still need more information on this wormhole infinite corridor that Saint Germain (Bill Nighy) jumped through and how they connect with Dracula. And in the most depressing part of season three comes in the form of Alucard’s story with Sumi (Rila Fukushima) and Taka (Toru Uchikado), making him doubt humankind. How will he feel going forward in this all-out war to save the world? We’ve got questions and season four had better answer them!

The season four trailer for Castlevania really nails home the idea that this ongoing battle between good and evil will finally come to an end. We hear Trevor, Sypha and Alucard discuss how the world is going crazy and it appears we are going back to where everything started. We also overhear Carmilla’s plan to take complete control of the world, but we do hear a bit from Hector and Lenore that give me the impression that they might not be on her side. The entire trailer art is a map that reminds me just a bit of the Game of Thrones opening sequence. I am hopeful we will get another trailer before it airs with the action we know and love.

If you have a million and one questions like we do, you don’t have to wait long. Netflix finishes off the trailer with the release date! Castlevania‘s fourth season will air on May 13, 2021. Just a little under a month! Haven’t caught up on the other seasons? Binge them here! You can check out the trailer below and the new poster art linked below.
