A bunch of TV promo trailers have been released today that are worth a look.

Netflix has released the full trailer for the fourth and final season of its anime series “Castlevania” based on the video game franchise. The new season arrives on the streamer on May 13th.

In the new season, Wallachia collapses into chaos as factions clash: some attempting to take control, others attempting to bring Dracula back from the dead. Nobody is who they seem, and nobody can be trusted.
