What was that Game Boy Castlevania with a female protag?
Sonia Belmont was Trevor's mom so it's not completely out of the realm of possibility of her showing up in S3.
It actually is (out of the realm of possibility).
She was retconned out of the timeline, and they created Leon Belmont to take her place.

Don't start with that crap, her game can still be placed in the timeline and the netflix series takes its own liberties with the mythos.
In the games, there's no reason she couldn't just be one of the many Belmonts throughout history.
Much as I would love for the Belmont lineage to have started with a woman (and that's the one thing I feel Igarashi has screwed up in his handling of the franchise), that ship has sailed, as did Alucard being Trevor's father, but the basic concept can still be adapted.
I mean hell, how much does Isaac and Hector have in common with their video game counterparts beyond the very basics of being Demon Forgemasters and loyalty to Dracula? Or lack thereof in Hector's case.

They retconned Sonia out of the way because the implication that Trevor is Alucard's bastard son would be strange, but his backstory in this show doesn't preclude her from having prequel adventures with a non-Alucard spouse.
The game doesn't even say Alucard was Trevor's dad.
It implied the possibility, but it could easily have been ignored. Hell, making them Star-Crossed Lovers is probably more dramatic anyway.
But they gotta go and throw the baby out with the bathwater...
Hey, I love Sonia, and I hate that she got retconned out (hell, Igarashi gave some much worse explanations for why he did it, with shit about how he couldn't be a woman be an action girl or something, though by the time Shanoa came around, he'd clearly changed his mind.
But Sonia is gone until someone puts her back, and that might not every happen since Konami seems to not want to make actual games anymore, and Iga is doing his own thing.
"Sonia is gone until someone puts her back."
So... Put... Her... Back...?
Konami isnít...making Castlevania anymore. If you want that void filled you have to play Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night...which is actually pretty damn good.
Konami gave the OK for the show and seeming free license of the property with it, so far. I doubt there's any copyright reasons keeping them from putting Sonia back in despite them going with the Leon backstory.
Yeah like... I doubt either Konami or Frederator give two shits about what Iga said back in the day.
The fact that they know who Grant Danasty is means they do at least remember the pre-Igarashi games, which means they likely also remember Sonia's existence.
Yeah. I suspect they've been doing their homework.
They know their audience.
Again, if they found some way to fit Sonia in, I'd be the first to cheer for it. The possibility actually isn't off the table I suppose.
Hell, Sonia didn't even need to be taken out of the regular timeline. Just say she's the first to face Dracula, but make Trevor the first to kill him. But Iga decided to Iga and that's how it went.
That being said, they could still find a way to slip her in if they wanted...
....gimme the Combat Cross Vampire Killer while we're at it. I just love that thing for some reason.
A main stage panel for the series will be happening at NYCC which probably means news on Season 3.
Which given how Season 2 ended probably mean an adaptation of Castlevania: Curse of Darkness.
I am still on my way on finishing the second season.
So much better than the first! That's all I can say about how I liked S2. I last remember that I've stopped after the episode where Dracula moved his castle.
I marathoned the entire season in an afternoon when it came out xD Can't wait for Season 3 either. Carmilla needs to die, big-time.
> Which given how Season 2 ended probably mean an adaptation of Castlevania: Curse of Darkness.
Season 2 does leave Hector in a place where he could feasibly be the next protagonist since Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard seem pretty much done. (At least for now. I'm wondering if they still want to do Symphony of the Night later.) Though Hector will probably be a new motive for seeking Isaac since there wasn't any word of fiancees.
Chronological order for the win, woo! Though I still hope they get to Simon and Richter later thanks to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
EDIT: And Carmilla needs to go away. Non-negotiable.

Iím not a fan of Curse but itís clear Ellis REALLY took to the Forgemasters. I mean, I want a Generational Saga but it sounds like this will be the last season Ellis is writing.
To be fair, the series was originally envisioned as a direct-to-video movie trilogy written by Warren Ellis. That was the original plan 10 years before it premiered as a Netflix Original Series.
I just hope he remains past the original-plan-reformatted-into-a-two season series.
The Forgemasters are pretty cool. Build a demonic army out of corpses using the hammer or whatever as a conduit.
Though I don't think Trevor and Sypha are done quite yet. They're the ones aiming to travel the world and fight evil and stuff. Plus Isaac is also still out there somewhere.
I hope Carmilla sticks around. She's delightfully shitty.
Well, she should survive all the way up to Richter's era.
Though I don't expect them to adapt Maria. Not unless the ideal of a girl in a poofy pink dress swearing like a sailor is something they want to try....
....you know, that would be pretty hilarious actually.
I want her to survive long enough to be killed by Nathan Graves
Because: surviving so long and so many belmonts and whatever elses and then this weird prematurely gray kid comes out of nowhere and kills you.
Oh right. I forgot she was in Nathan's game.
I'm confused: Is Circle of the Moon back in the timeline again or not?
Not that it matters I suppose. Ellis can do what he wants so if he wants it in there, we're good.
