It's only fitting that in the midpoint between fans of Netflix's Castlevania learning that the series wouldn't be returning for a fifth season and the kick-off of the anime's fourth and final season that the streaming service would release the official trailer for the 10-episode series send-off. For its final run, Dracula's influence looms large as Belmont and Sypha investigate plans to resurrect the notorious vampire- while Alucard struggles to embrace his humanity. But while this season may be the final chapter on this story, reports are that the streaming service is considering a new series set in the same universe but with a new run of characters.
Here's a look at the official trailer for the fourth and final season of Netflix's Castlevania– set to debut on May 13:
In the epic final season of Castlevania, Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions clash: some attempting to take control, others attempting to bring Dracula back from the dead. Nobody is who they seem, and nobody can be trusted. These are the end times.
Facing allegations last summer of sexual misconduct (which he denied), author, comic book writer, and Castelvania series creator/writer/EP Warren Ellis and the streaming service parted ways- but not before Ellis had finished the scripts for the fourth season. Ellis will not be involved in the upcoming season beyond what he had already completed, and DH also reports that Ellis has not been a part of any of the conversations about taking the franchise in another direction. Here's a look at the newest teaser:

Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy that follows Trevor (Richard Armitage), the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, who is trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes (Graham McTavish). But Trevor no longer is alone, and now he and his misfit comrades race to find a way to save humanity from extinction at the hands of the grief-maddened Dracula and his sinister vampire war council. James Callis, Emily Swallow, Matt Frewer, Tony Amendola, and Alejandra Reynoso also star.
