Universal has renewed its Kelly Overton-starring Van Helsing series for a third season. The finale of season 2 is set to air on 4th January, with another 13-episode third season expected in the autumn of 2018.
Starring Overton in the role of Vanessa Van Helsing, the series follows a country turned into a wasteland after vampires have risen to power. Van Helsing awakens after a 3-year coma and realises that, not only is she immune to vampires, but she can also turn them back into humans.
When speaking about the show’s recent renewal, showrunner Neil LaBute said:
“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.”
It sounds like it’s going to be another exciting and bloody season of Van Helsing, so we look forward to seeing more from it in 2018. Van Helsing additionally stars Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Vincent Gale, Missy Peregrym, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Aleks Paunovic and Paul Johansson.
