Netflix and Konami have announced a new animated Castlevania series is in the works. The project is not a fifth season of the existing Castlevania show (which has just concluded its last season), but a spin-off taking place nearly a century later. The show will be set during the 1792 French Revolution, while the story focuses on Richter Belmont and Maria Renard. Netflix made an error describing Richter as Trevor and Sypha's son; he is in fact a long descendant many generations down. The two protagonists first appeared in Castlevania Rondo of Blood on 16-bit consoles, and then became major supporting characters in the acclaimed Castlevania Symphony of the Night. The latter also heavily featured Alucard, who may show up at some point in the new show.

Richter Belmont seems like a safe choice, especially with his future connection with Alucard. He also recently regained popularity by appearing in Super Smash Bros Ultimate as an Echo Fighter. The original Netflix show did tease Christopher Belmont, and fans have voiced wanting to see Simon Belmont at some point. Series for those two will have to wait for now.
