“All of the scripts for the first season are finished,” Shankar said. “I collaborated with a very talented writer named Alex Larsen on the scripts. The scripts are great and I wanted to perform them in a way that would make my fellow DMC fans proud. Again, this was developed by a fan. of DMC for DMC fans, that was the philosophy behind the project, and production is slated to start early next year.
Larsen has already written several episodes of Netflix Yasuke so earlier this year, he’s so familiar with an anime franchise. Meanwhile, Shankar has already enjoyed great success in the anime business. He was executive producer on Netflix Castlevania series, which many fans have hailed as one of the best video game adaptations of all time. After securing the The devil can cry rights in 2018, Shankar also teased that the new series would be set in the same universe as Castlevania. However, it’s not clear if that’s still the plan.
