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.

Season End Status: This show’s numbers were down notably in its second season, below the 0.15 average that got Dark Matter cancelled in Summer.  But Van Helsing is likely less expensive to produce than that one and it did perform better than Syfy’s two new supernatural shows that tanked badly for the network in Fall.  Plus, VH has a very loyal fanbase that is very active on the social networks, and I believe that helped give the show a boost.  As long as they stay active, I believe this show has the chance to stick around for another year or so.
