Netflix announced today that Castlevania will be coming to an end after its upcoming fourth season. Along with the news, the streaming giant released a trailer and set a premiere date of May 13 for the animated drama's final 10-episode run.

The half-hour series premiered in 2017 as Netflix's first original anime series. It was an instant hit with fans and garnered high critical acclaim. Subsequent seasons have also been met with similar sentiments. The show will have a total of 32 episodes under its belt when all is said and done.

Based on the legendary video game franchise, Castlevania is a dark, medieval fantasy that chronicles the journey of the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan fighting to save a besieged Eastern European city from extinction at the hand of Dracula and his army of otherworldly beasts.
