The blockbuster anime Castlevania has come to an end after four seasons on Netflix, with the final nail being driven into the coffin by the streaming service. Season four of Castlevania has recently been released on the streaming site, and it tries to bring the storylines of Trevor Belmont, Sypha Belnades, and Alucard Tepes to a satisfying conclusion. There are only ten episodes left in the season, with the final episode, ‘It’s Been a Strange Ride,’ bringing the series to a close.
Before you shed your crimson, salty tears because you’ve come to the conclusion that the lifeblood of the main series has been drained, know that Netflix has guaranteed that the world of vampire villains and booze-swilling Belmonts will return in some form. It has been decided to cancel season five and instead commission a spin-off series that would be situated in the same world as Castlevania. Unfortunately, there is no word on when we will be able to explore the franchise’s convoluted past or who the primary characters will be in this next instalment.
What happened in the Castlevania season 4 finale?
With its blood-soaked farewell, Castlevania’s last confrontation saw the opposing factions unite at the royal Castle Dracula for one final showdown When Malcolm McDowell’s Varney was revealed to be the visage of Death, Trevor took on the big enemy and used old magic to remove the hate-filled phantom.
When Saint Germain’s final deed drew Belmont into the safety of the Infinite Hallway, it appeared that our hero had paid the ultimate sacrifice, but Trevor showed he had survived the experience with a last-minute fakeout.
Things are looking up for Alucard and Greta now that they’ve settled down with Trevor and (a pregnant) Sypha. Even while there isn’t a typical post-credits sequence, there is a final twist when Dracula and Lisa are reanimated.
The star-crossed lovers survived limbo despite the failure of the technique to bring their souls from Hell and fuse them into one body. With Alucard’s happy ending in mind, Dracula and the Count agreed to keep their resurrection a secret from the rest of the world, as well.
Castlevania Was Concluded After 4 Seasons
After three seasons, Netflix announced on March 27, 2020, that the show will be renewed for a fourth season. On April 16, 2021, it was also confirmed that the season will be the series’ final season. Season 4 has just ten episodes, which means it is a short season.
Unfortunately, the series will not be renewed for a fifth season, and the fourth season served as the series’ conclusion. For our viewers, however, we have something more in store for them. It has been decided to forego season five in favour of developing a spin-off series set inside Castlevania’s universe.
Will there be more Castlevania spin-offs?
Observing that Castlevania is being suggested as a starting point for a larger series of episodes is fascinating. There’s a lot of canon to draw from, even if we don’t expect to see as many shows as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Aside from the Belmonts, there are a slew of other storylines that might benefit from a sequel. Is there anyone who hasn’t wanted to see the rise of Carmilla and her Council of Sisters in Styria, or the eccentric Saint Germain?
The Castlevania Universe is getting even bigger.

This means that any characters we’ve previously met in the Castlevania series will be ruled out of the upcoming Netflix spin-off. The epilogue hinted to a probable time leap and the appearance of Simon by hinting at the birth of Trevor and Sypha’s kid.
There is only one person we can expect to see again: Dracula. Dracula is trying to wipe out the human species in the Castlevania games, but some ancestor of the Belmont family shows up to stop him.
Having seen how happy the Count was with Lisa, a return of Dracula as the main antagonist may detract from the impact of the Castlevania series’ conclusion. Vampires aren’t the only creatures with strength and bloodlust.
It’s worth noting that the Castlevania ending isn’t what it appears to be. Over the course of its four-season run, the series has gained a devoted following. The vampire fandom is as hungry as the vampires themselves. What Netflix has in store for the world of dark magic, vampires, and Belmonts will have to wait a little longer.
