Castlevania is an American adult animated web television series based on the video game series of the same name by Konami. The first two seasons adapt the 1989 entry Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse and follow Trevor Belmont, who defends the nation of Wallachia from Dracula and his minions. The series was originally planned as a film, developed by producer Kevin Kolde and his company Project 51. Kolde had a contract for a script with writer Warren Ellis in 2007; the project entered development hell until about 2015, when Adi Shankar boarded the project and it was picked up by streaming service Netflix. Powerhouse Animation Studios joined the team and production commenced. Its art style is heavily influenced by Japanese anime and Ayami Kojima's artwork in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, with the production team including staff members who worked in the Japanese anime industry.
