While a Devil May Cry animated series sounds like a ideal shared-universe complement to Castlevania on Netflix, the streaming giant hasn't weighed in publicly on whether it's picking up the series.

The success of the animated Castlevania series on Netflix has led producer Adi Shankar to expand his vision.

Shankar revealed the news in an interview with IGN and stated he personally acquired the rights to Devil May Cry so the "jabronis in Hollywood don't fuck this one up too".

As for the multiverse, Shankar did not share much, other than that both series are a part of what they're calling "the bootleg multiverse". If you're anxious about how Devil May Cry might be handled given the lackluster history of video game adaptations, you might take comfort in learning that Shankar is right up there with you. The streaming platform recently ordered a third season, set to premiere in 2019.

Nevertheless, the announcement of a Devil May Cry show is certain to build hype within the gaming community.

With four core games released so far, along with a more recent collection of the earlier games and a 2013 reboot of the hack-and-slash title, a new installment Devil May Cry 5 is due out from Capcom on March 8, 2019. Let us know in the comment section below!
