First Poster Artwork for Netflix’s ''Castlevania'' TV Series!

Dredd producer Adi Shankar’s animated TV series based on the popular “Castlevania” video games is heading to Netflix at some point this year, and Shankar mentioned that it will be “super violent” and “flip the vampire sub-genre on its head.” If that statement alone doesn’t get you excited for it, then nothing will.

However, Shankar took to his official Facebook page and shared a new piece of promotional art for the legendary video game. Head on down to see the lovely visuals.
