When will Castlevania season 4 air?

We don’t have an official air date for season 4 confirmed from Netflix, but we can make an estimation based on previous seasons. Season 1 and 2 had a 15 month gap, whilst seasons 2 and 3 had a 16 month gap. Season 3 aired early March 2020, so based on that we can expect to see season 4 in the later half of 2021.

Castlevania season 4 cast and crew

Whilst cast members for season 4 haven’t been confirmed, we imagine that the following are certain to return:

  • Richard Armitage as Trevor Belmont
  • James Callis as Adrian Tepes (Alucard)
  • Alejandra Reynoso as Sypha Blenades
  • Theo James as Hector
  • Adetokumboh M’Cormach as Isaac
  • Jaime Murray as Carmilla
  • Yasmine Al Massri as Morana
  • Jessica Brown Findlay as Conter
  • Ivana Milicevic as Striga
  • Bill Nighy as Saint Germain

As far as we’re aware, Warren Ellis will once again be writing the next season, and directors Sam Deats, Adam Deats, and Spencer Wan will all return also.

Once we know more about the cast and crew, we’ll update this article.

Plot of season 4 of Castlevania

Spoilers for previous seasons of Castlevania

There were a few plot threads set up at the end of season 3. With Lenore now having enslaved Hector, Camila can now move forward in taking over Wallachia. Of course, we highly suspect for her armies and invasions to cross directly with Issac, the other former forge master who used to work directly with Hector.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see a big epic battle go down between the two sides. Who will win is anyone’s guess, but Issac’s power has grown significantly over the last season.

Things ended pretty bleak for Alucard, Dracula’s son, at the end of season 3. After being betrayed by Taka and Sumi, the half-vampire had the two staked outside of his home as a warning to any future visitors. We imagine that he has some serious trust issues, and may have to battle with his own personal demons to avoid going fully over to the dark side.

The catalyst for that could be reuniting with Trevor and Sypha. After the pair had defeated the disturbing Dracula-worshipping cult in Lindenfeld, their plot was left quite open-ended. After being away from Alucard for an entire season, we’d look forward to seeing the trio reuniting once again (fingers crossed that happens).

Then of course, there’s the Infinite Corridor, where Count Saint Germain still remains. It was presumed that he reunited with his partner, but this gateway to other dimensions has a lot of other bizarre things dwelling in there. If somehow the gateway is reopened and he does find a way back to this world, there’s a chance that those other things could do too.

And that includes the big bad himself.

Will Dracula return to Castlevania?

By introducing the Infinite Corridor into the picture, we now know that Dracula has a way to return from the depths of Hell.

In the games, Dracula serves as the final boss nearly every time, so we’d be surprised if the show didn’t find a way to resurrect him. Giving a season off from him allowed other enemies like Camila and Issac to flourish, so it would certainly complicate things if suddenly Dracula was back in the picture.

When we last saw Dracula, he was finally reunited with his long-lost wife Lisa, who was the reason his hatred for humans began as she was burnt at the stake for being accused of witchcraft. If another cult (like what we saw in Lindenfeld) were to successfully bring Dracula back, they would take him away from his wife, and thereby start the cycle all over again.
