July 27 (UPI) -- Netflix says it has ordered a second season of its animated series, Castlevania.

Based on the popular, video-game franchise of the same name from Japan's Konami, the show is billed as a "dark medieval fantasy that follows the last surviving member of the disgraced Belmont clan, trying to save Eastern Europe from extinction at the hand of Vlad Dracula Tepes himself."

The voice cast includes Graham McTavish, Richard Armitage, James Callis, Emily Swallow, Matt Frewer, Tony Amendola and Alejandra Reynoso. Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.

"Castlevania has been a world icon for 30 years. WOW! and Frederator are honored to have the privilege of bringing it to life as an entertainment series that will continue its story for years to come," Fred Seibert, chief creative officer of WOW! Unlimited Media and chief executive officer of Frederator Networks and Frederator Studios, said in a statement.
