Devil May Cry: The Animated Series Will Have Multiple Seasons and Will Star Dante and Vergil

PS4 & PS5

Producer Adi Shankar revealed in a recent interview with IGN that the 2018 announced Devil May Cry: The Animated Series will have multiple seasons, and the first season will feature eight episodes. Additionally, the series will star beloved characters Dante and Vergil.

Shankar said that scripts for Season 1 are complete and he’s eyeing a “multi-season arc.” He also joked that Chris Pratt won’t be voicing any characters.

“The entire team both from the management side and the creative side have been so incredibly supportive and gracious,” Shankar said. “[Hiroyuki] Kobayashi-san has been wonderful. It’s seriously a joy to work with Capcom. Their character library is unlike anything assembled.”

Speaking of adapting video games into television series, Shankar (who is behind Netflix’s Castlevania as well) said:

Just like there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to adapting a book to a movie and just as there is not one right way to make a cover song, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to adapting, translating, or expanding games into another medium. Castlevania had a team of people top to bottom who were fans of the IP and wanted animation to be taken seriously as a medium and not just a genre. In 2017, when we launched Season 1, it felt like a fight to be noticed or even acknowledged by the mainstream. The fact that Castlevania has generated not only a spin-off but a has essentially sparked an entire vertical of adult oriented animated content for Netflix is insane. This is a case of right place right time, and I’m honored that I got to be a part of this ride.

Devil May Cry: The Animated Series has yet to enter production.
