The Origin Story of Richter Belmont Awaits in New ‘Castlevania: Nocturne’ Trailer


Castlevania: Nocturne will be making its way to Netflix at the end of this month, and ahead of the premiere, the official trailer has just arrived.

France, 1792 – the height of the French Revolution. In a remote part of western France, the counter-revolutionary aristocracy has forged an alliance with a terrifying Vampire Messiah, who promises to ‘eat the sun’ and unleash an army of vampires and nightcreatures to crush the revolution and enslave humanity. Annette, a sorceress from the Caribbean, seeks out Richter Belmont, last descendant of the long-fabled family of vampire hunters, to lead the resistance.

The voice cast includes Edward Bluemel, Thuso Mbedu, Pixie Davies, Sharon D. Clarke, Richard Dormer, Iain Glen, Sydney James Harcourt, Elarica Johnson, Nastassja Kinski, Zahn McClarnon, Aaron Neil, Franka Potente, and Sophie Skelton.

This eight-episode spin-off comes from showrunners Kevin Kolde (Castlevania) and Clive Bradley (Trapped), the latter of whom also serves as creator/writer. Sam Deats and Adam Deats share directing duties. Project 51 Productions and Powerhouse Animation produce for Netflix.

While Castlevania: Nocturne isn’t set to premiere until September 28, fans can now look forward to catching an early screening on September 27 as a part of Netflix’s first ever DROP 01 event!

DROP 01 is a virtual showcase set to celebrating the best of the streaming platform’s genre animation series. In addition to the early Castlevania screening, fans can also look forward to surprise announcements and never-before-seen, sneak peek “drops” from animated series. The global livestream will be broadcast on Wednesday, September 27 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET via Netflix Twitch.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
