Castlevania's Adi Shankar developing new Devil May Cry Series

‘Devil May Cry’ Series in the Works as Part of Adi Shankar’s “Bootleg Multiverse”

Now, the Bootleg Multiverse will be a place for his original offerings from the Universe to exist alongside adaptations like Castlevania and Devil May Cry. Adi Shankar, producer of the Castlevania animated Netflix series, announced today that he has acquired the rights to make a Devil May Cry animated series.

Devil May Cry is getting its own animated series on Netflix.

The previous 12-episode anime series was produced by Capcom and Madhouse in 2007, so it's been long overdue for the series to get a second anime outing.

Beyond Shankar's big reveal, details about the new series are light.


In the interview, Shankar called it a "bootleg multiverse", but didn't elaborate further. He also took time to thank the fans for the overwhelming success of, and positive response to Castlevania, which will enjoy a third season on Netflix.

Netflix's Castlevania has been one of the most popular shows on Netflix over the past two seasons.

The series follows this year's much-anticipated announcement of a new entry in the Devil May Cry series, which returns to the series' main storyline and characters after a controversial attempt at rebooting the franchise in 2013. If you're anxious about how Devil May Cry might be handled given the lackluster history of video game adaptations, you might take comfort in learning that Shankar is right up there with you.
