Van Helsing is an American supernatural drama television series and premiered on September 23, 2016 on Syfy. The series will star Kelly Overton as Vanessa Helsing.

It was created and produced by the Syfy network.

On October 14, 2016, Syfy renewed the series for a 13-episode second season.

“Van Helsing reimagines this classic story in a compelling new way featuring a bold and complex heroine," said Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Program Strategy, Syfy. "This action-packed series will be a terrific addition to our lineup next year."

“Van Helsing represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules,” said Chad Oakes, Nomadic Pictures. “The series is unique in exploring a world completely dominated by vampires, while the human characters have to learn the importance of working together to ensure their survival.” “Mike and I are thrilled to team up once again with the talented Neil LaButeto deliver an amazing series”.


Five years in the future following an event referred to as "The Rising", vampires now dominate the world. Vanessa Helsing, great-great-great-grand daughter of vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, is resurrected to lead the surviving humans in their struggle against the vampires.

Vanessa is the last hope for survival, as she unknowingly awakens to discover she possesses unique power over them: that she has a unique blood composition that makes her not only immune to vampires, but with the ability to turn a vampire human. With this secret weapon, Vanessa becomes a prime target for the vampires, while trying to save humanity.

Vanessa must now lead mankind against a world controlled by vampires in the post-Rising landscape, and the humans have to learn the importance of working together to ensure their survival.
