A beloved video game anime returns, Alex Garland’s new joint & more David Chang culinary adventures

A new month has begun and along with it, comes some exciting television. There is the return of a fan favorite video game-based anime, a brand-new drama thriller from the man behind Ex Machina and David Chang further explores how popular foods evolved due to such factors as geography and culture.

Filling the Power Vacuum

Listen to the latest episode of the AIPT Television podcast!

Season three of Castlevania returns this March 5 on Netflix. After the events of last season, the different vampire leaders are looking to take advantage of the situation and expand their territories and reach. Meanwhile, our heroes, Trevor and Sypha hit the open road and look for chances to train and test their abilities.

The third season will be the biggest yet, consisting of ten episodes. In addition, the world will be greatly expanded and we’ll be introduced to all-new characters. Watch the next chapter in the Castlevania saga and enjoy all the monster hunting action.

A Tech-Based Conspiracy Thriller

Writer and film maker, Alex Garland, is set to make his television debut with his series, Devs. The story follows a young software engineer who works for a cutting edge, technology company in Silicon Valley. She suspects her boyfriend’s recent suicide was really a murder by her employer, Amaya. Her investigation reveals the involvement of Amaya’s enigmatic CEO and the company’s secret development division, Devs. Her search for the truth uncovers a technology-based conspiracy that could threaten the world.

The show is created, written and directed by Garland and includes Sonoya Mizuno, Jin Ha, Zach Grenier, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Cailee Spaeny, Karl Glusman and Nick Offerman in the cast. Devs will premiere on March 5 on Hulu.

A History of Your Favorite Comfort Foods

The rise of foodie culture has in turn, seen the rise of non-fiction food television series. One of the tops in the genre is Ugly Delicious on Netflix. James Beard Award winning chef, David Chang, explores the cultural, sociological and culinary history behind specific popular foods. He travels the world to see first-hand how different regions prepare the same dish.

The show returns for its second season on March 6. Chang brings along some of his famous friends from both the culinary world like Padma Lakshmi and David Hagedorn and entertainment like Danny McBride and Nick Kroll. The only downside is a short season with only four episodes.
