The first “season” of Netflix’s Castlevania stretched the word to the very limit of its meaning, being little more then an introductory film to the main event. Major characters such as Dracula and his son Alucard were barely introduced or left purposefully vague. It was clear from the limited run time there was more to this story. As such...
