Press release from Syfy, Dec. 18, 2018:
Just ahead of its season finale, SYFY has renewed action-horror series Van Helsing for a fourth season. The hour-long drama wraps up its Season 3 run on Friday December 28 10/9c and will return in 2019 with 13 all new episodes. Production is expected to begin early next year.
Van Helsing is produced by Nomadic Pictures. Jonathan Walker (Continuum, Wu Assassins) will serve as Showrunner for the new season. Executive producers are Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev from Nomadic Pictures, Evan Tyler (Industry Works), Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell (Echo Lake Entertainment), as well as Daniel March (Dynamic Television). Dynamic Television is also handling the worldwide distribution for the series, excluding first run U.S. television and Canada.
“We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to return for Season 4 of Van Helsing. Without our partners at SYFY, Netflix, SuperEcran and our loyal fans, this would not be possible,” said Chad Oakes, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures. “We welcome Jonathan Walker to the Showrunner chair to lead our incredible cast of characters along their journey against the world of vampires!”
“Excited for a Van Helsing season four! Congrats to all our talented artists, cast and crew! Now let’s kill some blood sucking vampires,” added Michael Frislev, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures.
“Having been in the writing room on Van Helsing since Season 1 I’m excited to take the reins as Showrunner from Neil LaBute. Season 4 will delve deeper into the iconic lore of the vampires and their ultimate goals for this world. New villains will rise along with unexpected heroes joining the fight. We have a fantastic build planned for this season and I’m thrilled to share it with our dedicated fans,” said Showrunner Jonathan Walker.
“We are thrilled to continue the Van Helsing legacy for our fans worldwide,” added Daniel March, Managing Partner, Dynamic Television. “Thank you to SYFY and our amazing cast and crew.”
Van Helsing is a total re-imagination of a timeless brand, set in a world dominated and controlled by vampires. Season three continues the story of Vanessa Van Helsing and her band of heroes as they fight to reclaim the world after vampires took over during ‘The Rising’.
The action-horror series airs on SYFY in the U.S., on SuperEcran in Quebec, Canada and globally on Netflix. Van Helsing stars Kelly Overton, Missy Peregrym, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro and Aleks Paunovic.
