Get Gory With Castlevania Season 2 Trailer

Fresh footage of Netflix series from Austin's Powerhouse Animation

There will be blood: Castlevania season two trailer is here.

Welcoming back to the bloodiest splash zone on TV: Netflix has just dropped the trailer for season two of Castlevania, the cartoon adaptation by local studio Powerhouse Animation of the legendary video game franchise.

Season one (like season two, animated right here in Austin by Powerhouse) ended with the three fearless vampire hunters - the laconic and dissolute Trevor Belmont (Richard Armitage), the mystical Sypha Belnades (Alejandra Reynoso), and good-guy bloodsucker Alucard (James Callis) - pledging to work together to take on Vlad Dracula Tepes (Graham McTavish).

It was already a big challenge, since he'd unleashed his dark army, and turned Wallachia into a gore-strewn wasteland. Now the new trailer shows that was only the beginning, with the reveal of Dracula's generals, and his grand master plan: today, Wallachia, tomorrow, the world.

Castlevania season two debuts on Netflix on Oct. 26 - just in time for Halloween. And if that's not enough good news, anime experts Viz Media announced last week at San Diego Comic Con has acquired season one for a home release, meaning the show will get a permanent home on your shelves.
