Castlevania Showrunner Warren Ellis Reportedly Out After Season 4

The comic book industry has recently been rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct by several writers. Warren Ellis was one of the most prominent comic book writers to be caught in the wave. Over 60 individuals have already come forward with accusations towards Ellis, and DC subsequently dropped one of his projects. Now, it appears that Ellis’ Hollywood career will also take a hit.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ellis has already finished his scripts for Castlevania season 4.  Ellis created the animated series for Netflix, which is based on Konami’s hit video game series. He has also written all 22 episodes of the series to date. However, THR is reporting that Ellis won’t return to the series if it gets a fifth season.

It’s unclear if Ellis’ reported departure from Castlevania was his own choice, or if it was a response to his ongoing crisis. Regardless, Ellis left an indelible mark on Castlevania.

Netflix officially renewed Castlevania earlier this year. There was a year-and-a-half gap between seasons 2 and 3. That potentially means new Castlevania won’t hit Netflix until 2022.

What do you think about Ellis’ reported departure from Castlevania? Can the series maintain its quality without him? Let us know in the comment section below!
