When Vanessa Helsing is resurrected five years in the future, she learns vampires have taken over the world and that she possesses unique power over them. She is humanity’s last hope to lead an offensive to take back what has been lost.
Syfy announced today that Van Helsing has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news comes with two episodes remaining in the vampire hunting drama's third season, which will conclude just before the new year on December 28.
The cable network has ordered another 13 episodes for Season 4, matching the length of each of the show's first three seasons. Jonathan Walker, who writes and executive-produces the series, will take over as showrunner going forward, replacing Neil LaBute.
Van Helsing is a re-imagining of the perennial Dracula brand that follows the resurrection of Vanessa Helsing, a descendent of the legendary Van Helsing lineage of warriors, and her quest to lead mankind against a world controlled by vampires in the post-Rising landscape.
