You can put a stake in Van Helsing but the show’s not dead yet. The Canadian TV series, which airs on Syfy in the United States, has been renewed for a fifth and final season of 13 episodes. Season four concludes this Friday night. Season five production will begin in early 2020 and the last episodes will begin airing later in the year.
A horror-fantasy series, Van Helsing, stars Kelly Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Neal McDonough, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, and Aleks Paunovic. Joining the cast are Tricia Helfer, Richard Harmon, Nicole Munoz, Keeya King, and pro-wrestler Big Show. The show centers on Van Helsing descendent Vanessa “Van” Helsing, 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 four, the first of four vampire elders has been freed and legend has it that when their four Totems are combined, the Dark One will be resurrected. It’s a race against time as Van and her ragtag group of heroes face off against the forces of darkness.
“We are thrilled to be able to bring the amazing Van Helsing saga to a close,” said executive producer Chad Oakes, according to THR. “This could not have been done without the support of our incredible cast, crew, Syfy, Netflix, and Super Ecran.” Netflix distributes the series globally while Super Ecran releases it in Quebec.
