The trailer opens with an extended nod to the classic NES video game source material, before launching into the series preview. The official synopsis reads: Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepe himself. The animated series is written by best-selling author and comic book icon Warren Ellis and executive produced by Warren Ellis, Kevin Kolde, Fred Seibert and Adi Shankar.
The first poster was revealed in February, along with news that Ellis was already working on season 2 for 2018. (see “'American Gods,' 'Black Lightning,' 'Castlevania,' 'MST3K,' 'Inhumans,' Fox's Untitled Marvel Series”)
