Back in 2018, a new Devil May Cry animated series was announced by Netflix. On November 5, 2021, Adi Shankar (Castlevania), the producer of the series, shed some light on the adaptation, revealing the information that the Season 1 script is already done. He also states that the scripts are rad and that he couldn’t be more excited about the show. Shankar also mentioned that the first season of the Devil May Cry Netflix series will have 8 episodes. To top it off, he says that the story won’t end here as he’s planning a “multi-season arc,” an arc that will unfold over multiple connected seasons.
Adi continued the interview by confirming the appearance of Vergil, Lady, and Dante in the animated series. He also jokingly said that Chris Pratt (Mario in the upcoming Mario movie, Garfield) won’t be voicing any of the characters. Adi Sankar is working alongside Capcom, which he says has been a dream of his.
