Syfy has been cleaning house and has cancelled a lot of its TV series lately — shows with better and worse ratings than Van Helsing’s. Only a few of the channel’s existing series have been renewed. Will this one stick around or, is it already doomed? Will Van Helsing be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
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 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.
