Syfy Renews 'Van Helsing' for Season 2

Just four episodes into its first season, Syfy has renewed its original drama series Van Helsing for a second season. Production on the 13-episode second season will begin in January 2017. 

After a catastrophic volcano eruption, the last remaining underground vampires rise up through a dark, ash-filled sky to overtake America. Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), a descendant of the legendary line of vampire hunters, awakens from a three-year coma to discover that she's not only immune to the bloodthirsty predators but also has the ability to make them human again.

The cast also includes Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, David Cubitt, Vincent Gale, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Aleks Paunovic, Laura Mennell, Tim Guinee and Paul Johansson.

Neil LaBute developed the series. He serves as executive producer with Chad Oakes, Mike Frislev, Simon Barry, Evan Tyler, Dave Brown, Zadoc Angell and Daniel March. Nomadic Pictures and Dynamic Television produce.

"We have a wonderful and terrifying road ahead planned for Vanessa, her allies and her enemies," said LaBute. "I think this is a world and a story that can be sustained for many years and I am inspired to do so thanks to Syfy's obvious trust and commitment in the storytellers, cast and crew."
