An Animated Castlevania Series Might Be in the Works From the Studio Behind Adventure Time


Last week, Fred Seibert, the founder of Frederator Studios (Adventure Time, The FairlyOddparents, Bee And Puppy Cat), gave hope to fans of the iconic game Castlevania with some not-so-subtle hints that an animated series might be in the works.

While a Castlevania film never quite panned out (that’s not to say fans didn’t make their own!), it was announced in 2015 that a mini-series based on Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse was on the way with Adi Shankar as producer. In an conversation on the Nick Animation podcast, Seibert teased this news:

We have a project now that we’re doing that needs to go unnamed, based one of the most world-famous video games of the last 30 years, that we’ve had in our shop for 12 years without being able to get it started. But there were great characters, and a great story, and we eventually got it going.

Of course, listeners quickly deciphered the not-so-vague description as the franchise just turned 30 in September. Are you excited to see an animated Castlevania?
