Description: Van Helsing is a total re-imagination of a timeless brand, set in a world dominated and controlled by vampires.  Vanessa Helsing is the last hope for survival, as she unknowingly awakens to discover 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.

Status: The renewal for this show was anything but a sure bet because its ratings were down over twenty percent from the prior year. Syfy does not own the show, so the network makes its money on advertising which is strongly driven by same day ratings results. But, like summer series Wynonna Earp, Van Helsing is likely cheaper to produce than other Syfy entries and it does have a dedicated fanbase that is very active on the social networks. There will be some behind the scenes changes as the show’s writer / executive producer Jonathan Walker will be taking over the showrunner duties in the fourth season. And fans will definitely need to stay active on the social networks in support of this show if they want it to stick around past its fourth season.
