A year ago we heard that a TV show based on ‘Castlevania’ was in the works before everything got quiet and not an update was heard. However, one of those who was rumored to be involved in the project just vaguely mentioned on the Nick Animation podcast that a series he was going to work on was happening.

Only time will tell.
