Ahead of its Season 2 finale, Syfy has renewed action-horror series Van Helsing for a third season. The hour-long drama will wrap its Season 2 run on Thursday, January 4 9/8c and return next fall for a 13-episode season. Production is expected to begin in February 2018.
The series from Nomadic Pictures is set in a world dominated and controlled by vampires. Season 2 pushed Vanessa and the other survivors further into the world of the vampire apocalypse, where they discovered old alliances have crumbled and new connections expose long-buried secrets about the Rising, the Van Helsing heritage, and the survival of humankind itself. Kelly Overton, Missy Peregrym, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Aleks Paunovic and Paul Johansson star.
Executive producers are Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev from Nomadic Pictures, showrunner/writer Neil LaBute, Evan Tyler (Industry Works), Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell (Echo Lake Entertainment), as well as Daniel March (Dynamic Television).
“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,” said showrunner Neil LaBute. “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.”
