“We are thrilled to be able to bring the amazing Van Helsing saga to a close. This could not have been done without the support of our incredible cast, crew, Syfy, Netflix and Super Ecran.”
Syfy has given a 13-episode order for Van Helsing Season 5. With the finish line now clearly on the horizon, the series will be able to properly conclude its story, which has greatly evolved its mythology from an initial concept centered on Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), who, bearing an innate ability to combat (and even cure) vampires, was brought back to life to serve as humanity’s last hope in a post-apocalyptic near-future.
Van Helsing is an American-Canadian dark fantasy horror drama television series, overseen by provocateur playwright-filmmaker Neil LaBute, which premiered September 23, 2016 on Syfy in the United States. The series follows Vanessa Helsing (played by Kelly Overton) daughter of famed vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, who wakes up after a five-year coma to discover a vampire-controlled world. She soon learns that she possesses a unique blood composition that makes her immune to vampires and able to turn the creatures into humans. That power puts humanity’s last hope to return the world to how it once was before the vampires took over in Vanessa’s hands. The series premiered on Netflix December 23, 2016″
The network is hopeful the series will air in late Fall or early Winter.
