When will we see the return of Trevor, Sypha and Alucard? The show's director revealed that his team was still working on season 3's last episode on Tuesday.

Is Castlevania season 3 coming just in time for the holidays?


Netflix Nordic sent a tweet Monday highlighting the upcoming shows for the streaming platform, giving a Dec. 1 release date for season 3 of Castlevania, according to PC Gamer. However, Netflix said Tuesday that it doesn't have a release date for season 3 and its Nordic branch's since-deleted tweet was a mistake.

Samuel Deats, the show's director, expressed surprise at the idea of a Dec. 1 release in his own tweet. 

"HAH, that's news to me and would certainly be scary considering we're still working on the last episode of the season," he wrote Tuesday.

Castlevania is an animated series based on the video game franchise of the same name. Seasons 1 and 2 focused on Trevor Belmont, a monster hunter who's tasked to take on the forces of Dracula. He's joined by magic-user Sypha Belnades and Alucard, Dracula's son. All three characters made their debut in Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse, released on the NES in 1990.

A similar accidental tweet from another Netflix account happened in September with The Witcher. The Netflix Netherlands Twitter account tweeted the show would be released on Dec. 17, but he date was denied by the company. The Witcher release date was later revealed to be Dec. 20. 

CNET's Sean Keane contributed to this report.
