Syfy has renewed their action-horror series Van Helsing prior to the second season finale. The series wraps up its sophomore run on January 4th and will be back in the fall for another 13 episodes with production firing up in February 2018.
Inspired by the Zenescope Entertainment comic series, Van Helsing is set in a world controlled by vampires as Vanessa and a group of humans try to survive the vampire apocalypse. In season two they discovered alliances had fallen apart and new ones expose hidden secrets about the Rising, Van Helsing's heritage and the chance that mankind might survive.
The series stars Kelly Overton, Missy Peregrym, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Aleks Paunovic and Paul Johanssonr. The show is executive produced and run by Neil LaBute who said of the renewal:
I couldn't be happier to learn that Syfy has renewed Van Helsing for a Season 3—it has been a wonderful journey thus far, but we have much more of the 'Van Helsing' saga to tell before we're through. It's great to be working with Syfy on this project again, along with Chad and Mike at Nomadic and all the others at Dynamic and Echo Lake as well. The writing team has some amazing adventures planned for our cast and a few new surprises as well—expect blood to be spilled and characters to die screaming while the fate of humanity slips closer and closer to the edge of true chaos and utter darkness.
Van Helsing airs Thursdays on Syfy and has three episodes left in the season starting December 21st.
