How to live stream
You can live stream Season 4 of 'Castlevania' on Netflix. You can also catch up on the previous seasons on the streaming site.
The official synopsis states Castlevania's story as: "A vampire hunter fights to save a besieged city from an army of otherworldly beasts controlled by Dracula himself. Inspired by the classic video games."
Over the past three seasons, the series has introduced us to Castlevania's big bad — Count Vlad Dracula Tepes. After his wife Lisa is burned at the stake since she was accused of being a witch, the count begins to attack the people of Wallachia to have them pay for her death. The only people who succeed in stopping him, his war council and his army are vampire hunter Trevor Belmont, sorceress Sypha Belnades and Dracula's son Alucard. Alucard ultimately ends up killing his own father in an attempt to save humanity, while his comrades take down the rest of his army.
However, there was a mutiny brewing within Dracula's own ranks. Dracula's war council did not take kindly to Isaac and Hector, two humans who despised humanity and served Dracula. Hector is ultimately brainwashed by Carmilla, one of the vampires on the war council whose ambition is to be the most powerful vampire. After Dracula's death, she is ready to claim what she believes is her rightful place as the strongest vampire. However, the question remains: what if The Count comes back?
While Season 4 marks the last season in the series, Comic Book reports that it won't be the last in the franchise. The 'Castlevania' universe could possibly be looking at an expansion, with a whole new cast and storyline.
