Adi Shankar is a great producer. Whether he’s helming Castlevania or the upcoming Captain Laserhawk, it’s clear the man has a genuine love for video games. Now, Shankar has shared some details regarding Devil May Cry and its forthcoming Netflix adaptation with IGN. The Devil May Cry Netflix series will have a story told through multiple seasons. In addition, it will feature many of the characters we know and love from the franchise.
I’m down for a long Devil May Cry Netflix series
Here are some specifics from Shankar:
The season 1 scripts are done. They are rad. I could not be more excited.
I can confirm that Vergil is in it, as well as Lady, and of course Dante as well.
I can also confirm that Chris Pratt won’t be voicing any of the characters.
That last part is important because Pratt is all over voice work now, so I had a genuine fear he would have been Dante.
The first season of Devil May Cry will have eight episodes. There will be a multi-season arc, so hopefully, the entire plot of Devil May Cry 3 will be recreated (I’m guessing it will center on the third game due to the character announcements).
Shankar also mentioned he is working directly with Hiroyuki Kobayashi, a veteran producer at Capcom. Kobayashi has worked on Devil May Cry and Resident Evil in the past, so Shankar is understandably giddy about the collaboration:
Kobayashi-san has been wonderful. It’s seriously a joy to work with Capcom. Their character library is unlike anything assembled.
Enthusiasts, will you be checking out the Devil May Cry Netflix series and its multiple seasons? It’s going into production next year, so we still have a ways to go!
