Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Syfy horror fantasy, Van Helsing, stars Kelly Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Missy Peregrym, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, and Aleks Paunovic. It centers on Van Helsing descendent Vanessa (“Van”) Helsing, who awoke from a coma to find vampires have overtaken the world. Since Van has a unique blood composition which makes her immune to vampires and allows her to turn them into humans, this vampire hunter is their prime target. In Van Helsing, season three, after being bitten by a shape-shifting Elder vampire loyal to the Van Helsing clan, Vanessa is once again resurrected. Now she must confront her family’s legacy. At Crooked Falls, Axel (Scarfe), Scarlett (Peregrym) and the others fend off Blak Tek’s forces who hope to add Scarlett to their list of lab rats.
