The end of Van Helsing is closer than we thought. Syfy has announced a schedule change for the final four episodes of the fantasy horror series.
Van Helsing, stars Kelly Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Tricia Helfer, Aleks Paunovic, Kim Coates, Keeya King, Nicole Munoz, Jesse Stanley, and Jennifer Cheon. The show centers on Van Helsing descendent Vanessa “Van” Helsing (Overton), who awoke from a coma to find vampires had overtaken the world. A prime target for the vampires, she’s also humanity’s last hope with her immunity to vampires and her ability to turn them into humans. In season five, Vanessa, Violet (King), and Jack (Munoz) risk everything to finally bring an end to the Dark One, once and for all. The Van Helsings must figure out ways to escape and evade the various obstacles in their path to prevent them from their mission, leading to an epic final showdown between the Van Helsings and the Dark One.
The fifth and final season of 13 episodes debuted on April 16th with one episode being released each Friday night. The series finale had been set for July 9th.
Syfy has now decided to finish airing the four remaining installments ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. Three episodes run tonight, June 18th, starting at 8:00 PM. The series finale airs next week, on June 25th, at 10:00 PM.
The move was reported by Syfy Wire but seems to have caught others unaware. It’s likely that most fans won’t be aware of the shift and the ratings will suffer.
