Netflix's CASTLEVANIA: SEASON 3 Did "Shockingly Well" According to Producer Warren Ellis
Although we probably won't get an exact idea of the figures anytime soon, Castlevania writer and producer Warren Ellis has revealed that the recently released third season of the Netflix anime has been performing really, really well. Quite surprisingly, Season 3 did better in its first month than its acclaimed predecessors.
"So, we had our Netflix call about the 28-day data on Castlevania: Season 3 last week," Ellis said on his website. "And, because Netflix data is protected, I can’t actually tell you all the exact numbers. What I can say is that season 3’s popularity was an order of magnitude over that of season 2, and season 2 was popular enough to get us season 3. It turns out season 3 did, really, shockingly well."
"Shows tend to show a little attrition in the third season, and it was, quote, “unusual” to see the audience actually rise by a multiple factor," the renowned comic book (and Dead Space) writer added.
What's even more impressive, the third season was in the Top 10 of Netflix shows for a week or two in 40 countries, instantly becoming one of the most successful animated shows in the streaming giant's history.
There's no denying that the global pandemic has made the works on the already announced Castlevania: Season 4 a lot more challenging, but Ellis doesn't "expect too much of a covid-related delay, but if that one guy who keeps tagging me on IG to demand “season 4 NOW” could f*ck off, I’d appreciate it."
