SYFY has renewed the series Van Helsing for a fourth season, according to THR. This time around, however, the show is getting a new showrunner. Neil LaBute is departing the series, and Jonathan Walker from Continuum and Wu Assassins is taking over for him. The new season will have 13 episodes and will air in 2019.
The third season of Van Helsing is set to wrap on December 28. The next season will still have LaBute’s participation, as he is writing three scripts, though he is joining the Netflix series The I-Land with Kate Bosworth and Alex Pettyfer.
Van Helsing is executive produced by Walker, Nomadic’s Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev Industry Works’ Evan Tyler, Echo Lake Entertainment’s Dave Brown and Zadoc Angell and Dynamic TV’s Daniel March. The series stars Kelly Overton, Missy Peregrym and Jonathan Scarfe.
“Having been in the writing room on Van Helsing since season one I’m excited to take the reins as showrunner from Neil LaBute,” Walker told the site. “Season four 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.”
Van Helsing is set in the near future. Vampires have taken over the world, and Vanessa Van Helsing (Overton), who has woken from a coma in this nightmare landscape, has to save the world with her power to turn vampires human.
