In a world completely dominated by vampires, Vanessa Helsing, a descendant of the Van Helsing lineage of warriors, must show mankind how to take back their world from those dirty bloodsuckers.
SyFy has released the first Van Helsing trailer and promo. A commercial-free preview of the new vampire series will debut this Sunday, immediately after the Sharknado: The 4th Awakens telecast.
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.
The cast features Kelly Overton (“True Blood”), Jonathan Scarfe (“Hell on Wheels”), Christopher Heyerdahl (“Sanctuary,” “True Blood”), Paul Johansson (“One Tree Hill”), David Cubbit “(“Medium”), Vincent Gale (“Bates Motel”) and Tim Guinee (“Homeland”).
Van Helsing is produced by Nomadic Pictures, which also serves as the studio. The series is executive produced by Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev from Nomadic Pictures, Showrunner Neil LaBute, Simon Barry (“Continuum”), Evan Tyler, Dave Brown, Zadoc Angell, and Daniel March.
The 13-episode series will officially debut on Friday, September 23 at 10-11 p.m. ET on Syfy.
