Nearly every culture has a vampire myth. Bram Stoker’s Gothic horror novel, Dracula, was published 120 years ago and took the world by storm. It has inspired many adaptations and served as the stepping-off-point for further explorations of the legend. Now in its second season on Syfy, the Van Helsing TV show is a twist centering on Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), a descendant of Stoker’s protagonist, Professor Abraham Van Helsing. A top-three performer for Syfy in its first season, can it build on its audience, this time around? Will Van Helsing be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned.
A Syfy horror fantasy, Van Helsing, stars Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, David Cubitt, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Tim Guinee, Laura Mennell, Paul Johansson, Aleks Paunovic, and Hilary Jardine. Vanessa or “Van” Helsing awoke from a coma to find vampires have overtaken the world. Since she 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 two, Van and the other survivors realize that old alliances have fallen apart. Meanwhile, new contacts are revealing secrets about The Rising, the Van Helsing legacy, and the very fate of mankind itself.

12/19 update: Syfy has renewed Van Helsing for season three. Details here.
I love Van Helsing, should definitely renew for season 3.
I love this show and the story line. Love watching Vanessa kick ass fight! Although she looks a little pregnant. So I am thinking maybe that is why they showed more of the other characters in season 2. But can’t wait to see her in Season 3. Want more of Vanessa and Axel!
My FAVORITE Show!!! PLEASE RENEW!!!

Based on the season ending season 2 show. I doubt if I ever watch it again. This is not radio, using dark shadows and not being able to really see what is going on is laziness and inability to create a real visual effect. I will never watch anything by the director of the final season 2 episode. It is obvious that the director has no artistic talent.
So excited for Season 3!!
Need MORE of Vanessa!! Especially now, when the show’s really PICKED UP!! It’s soooo exciting and please remember when you’re counting “ratings”….: most of us ” Vanessa fans” record our favorite show.
i’m not sure how it works, do you know? is it only watching live that counts in the ratings? not when you record it? in that case, you better start watching live NOW before this show gets killed 🙁
SYFY has renewed shows with rating this PATHETIC and DISGUSTING BEFORE. It still has a bunch of episodes before the end of the season. Will it be renewed again? Stay Tuned!
I’m not surprised to see the ratings nosedive because that’s what you get when producers forget the title of the show. It’s not “Van Helsing+”. There have been way too many subplots about other characters. I endured four episodes of this season, but now I’ve moved on — because this series has lost its mojo.
Only show worth watching on syfy! Awesome
it was a bit of a slow start on season 2 but episode 3 was amazing, maybe the best yet! if you missed it you need to go find it!
Love it!! Been looking forward to the return.
Been looking forward to Season 2 of Van Helsing airing, it rocks! Things are going to get wicked!
