"Adventure Time” producers has a new cartoon coming out and it’s based on the "Castlevania" series.

We know Frederator Studios was behind popular cartoons like "The Fairly OddParents" and "Adventure Time." But, they were also known for adult cartoons as well such as online toon show "SuperF*ckers." Now, we've got reports that their next cartoon is something a little more grand and exciting: a cartoon series based on the "Castlevania" series.

YIBADA actually revealed "Adventure Time" producer Fred Seibert in the Nick Animation Podcast that his studio, Frederator, will be developing a new animated series based on Konami's classic long-running series. While he hasn't revealed any explicit details on the show, this is something worth looking forward to soon.

In fact, Frederator actually bought the rights rights for a "Castlevania" TV series, which Seibert has actually alluded to. Additionally, this property has been around with the studio for 12 years and has been worked on for quite some time.

While a lot of these have just been considered rumors, the most convincing piece of evidence was given by Hollywood producer Adi Shankar ("The Grey," "Dredd"). It was actually based on a Facebook post of his that he's working with Seibert and Kevin Klonde on a "Castlevania" animated show.

Here's what Shankar's post said:

"Breaking News: I'm producing a super violent Castlevania mini-series with my homies Fred Seibert and Kevin Klonde. It's going to be dark, satirical, and after a decade of propaganda it will flip the vampire sub-genre on its head."

Additionally, an announcement for a "Castlevania" cartoon was also an opportune time since it fits within the period within the 30th anniversary of "Castlevania," which happened back in September. With Shankar's involvement with Frederator, this show would consider a lot of time and effort in development before a premiere date would be even announced.

According to Screen Crush, the studio's long-running show "Adventure Time" is said to finally end at around 2018. This led to a lot of speculations that "Castlevania" will follow after the Cartoon Network show. With a lot of properties being made into shows, it is far from impossible that that will be the case.

Here's the video clip with producer Fred Seibert:
