SDCC 2018: VIZ Media Acquires the Home Media Rights to Castlevania Season 1
VIZ Media expands its catalog with the acquisition of Season 1 of Castlevania.
VIZ Media announced the acquisition of Castlevania during its official panel held this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. VIZ Media has acquired home media distribution rights to the American anime-influenced series, which is produced by Frederator Studios. Castlevania Season 1 has streamed to wide acclaim on Netflix.
Inspired by the classic video game series, Castlevania is a dark medieval fantasy following the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself. In Season 1, Trevor Belmont, embittered and excommunicated, finds himself drawn into a battle for the survival of Europe – a region that has brought doom upon itself by taking away the one thing its greatest monster loved.
