Whereas Hollywood is presently looking for the perfect person to tackle the position of vampire hunter Van Helsing inside Common’s Darkish Universe franchise, the small display screen already has unbelievable iteration in Kelly Overton portrayal of the titular hero in in Syfy’s Van Helsing. Audiences can be getting to observe Overton’s work for fairly some time longer, as Syfy has renewed Van Helsing for Season three, which is able to debut in some unspecified time in the future in late 2018.
Fortunately, Syfy is giving Van Helsing one other full-length run for Season three, with 13 episodes ordered up. In keeping with Deadline, manufacturing is about to kick off in February 2018, following the conventional schedule, so followers will not be coping with any massive delays between seasons. Which is greater than I can say for some other shows on TV as of late.
With out going into spoilers, it must be extraordinarily fascinating to see the place Vanessa Van Helsing goes subsequent, particularly since we nonetheless do not understand how Season 2 goes to cap issues off. The whole lot surrounding BlakTek and the genetic assessments appears to be setting the present up for some loopy reveals within the close to future, and now that every one concerned know that the story will proceed for an additional season, the inventive group can hopefully preserve crafting new and shocking narrative avenues for this supernatural universe.
Creator Neil LaBute had some thrilling phrases to supply followers hoping Van Helsing will get larger and higher as time goes by. In keeping with his assertion:
The writing group has some superb adventures deliberate for our solid and some new surprises as well—expect blood to be spilled and characters to die screaming whereas the destiny of humanity slips nearer and nearer to the sting of true chaos and utter darkness.
For higher or worse — and we’re fairly certain it is “worse” right here — Van Helsing has a devoted fanbase that loves the present, nevertheless it’s usually a much smaller fanbase than that of most exhibits. Whereas Season 1 usually had between 500,000-600,000 viewers per week, Season 2 hasn’t been in a position to herald over a half-million in any of the episodes which have aired up to now. Plus, the important thing demo ranking within the 18-49 age vary hovers across the fairly paltry zero.10 vary, which admittedly is not the worst for a genre cable show, nevertheless it’s additionally removed from one of the best. On the opposite finish of the dial, as an example, one of many newest episodes of The Strolling Useless‘s lower-rated Season 8 introduced in three.6 million viewers simply in delayed viewings, which earned a formidable 1.7 demo ranking.
Here is hoping folks can be tuning into the following episode, “Be True.” You possibly can watch the haunting and action-packed trailer for it under.
These searching for extra from Season 2 will quickly be happy anew, as Van Helsing airs Thursday nights on Syfy at 9:00 p.m. ET, with the season finale set to air on January four, 2018. To see what different new and returning exhibits are presently and soon-to-be-airing, head to our 2018 midseason premiere schedule.
