Back in June 2021, Netflix announced a new animated Castlevania show was in development. It noted that series staples Richter Belmont and Maria Renard would be its stars. Now during Netflix Geeked Week 2022, a teaser appeared and revealed the series’ name is Castlevania: Nocturne.
The segment is incredibly brief. Initially, we only see Richter from behind. He’s wearing a familiar blue coat and carrying his trademark whip. As the camera focuses in on details, like a crest on his back, different characters from the series can be heard speaking to him. After one person says, “We’re looking for someone called Belmont,” Richter turns around. After that, the show’s name and its logo is revealed.
Here’s the official announcement tweet. It also mentions “season 1,” suggesting there could be more than one season of this show.
