Netflix revealed a new Castlevania animation set in 1792 France against the backdrop of the French Revolution during Geeked Week. Not only that, but there's more! Richter Belmont and Maria Renard, the fan-favorite characters from the games Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night, will appear in the new series.

Kevin Kolde will produce the new Castlevania series, which will be written by Clive Bradley, who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer. With Sam and Adam Deats directing, Powerhouse Animation will continue to act as the series' animation studio.

Richter, for those who are unaware, is a descendent of Trevor Belmont, the lead of the Netflix Castlevania series. He began his career as the star of Rondo of Blood (also known as Castlevania: Dracula X in the United States) and the antagonist of Symphony of the Night, in which he takes over Dracula's castle and attempts to revive the vampire king.

This is the most recent iteration in Netflix's game adaptation strategy, which has had success with shows like The Witcher with forthcoming bets like Resident Evil. Netflix's game adaptations include a mix of live-action shows, animated series, and films, with the company always on the lookout for the next big thing.

The studio is far from the only one hoping to create the next Game of Thrones by adapting popular video games. In collaboration with Sony and Naughty Dog, HBO is developing a Last of Us series, as Sony is preparing to debut its live-action Uncharted film starring Tom Holland.

Netflix hasn't revealed any other details, but we'll keep you updated as we learn more about the next episode in the Castlevania series. The following is the announcement tweet:
