'Van Helsing' is drawing to a close. The fifth season of 'Van Helsing' has been announced to be its final one, bringing the story of a vampire hunter in a post-apocalyptic world in which the vampires rule to a close.

Following the events of the fourth season, the Dark One (Tricia Helfer) has broken free of the Dark Realm, and is currently impersonating the President of what's left of America, with no one to stop her as she heads to a mysterious paradise that's somehow free of vampiric influence.

Release Date

The fifth season of 'Van Helsing' does not yet have a release date, but is expected to release some time in 2020. 


'Van Helsing' is set in a world that's been taken over by vampires, who began the apocalypse in an event known as 'The Rising.'

With dominion over the Earth, most humans are just trying to survive, until the awakening of Vanessa van Helsing (Kelly Overton), a woman with unique abilities that help her combat and even cure vampires.

Vanessa comes from a long line of van Helsings, who have been fighting vampires and their leader, the Dark One (Tricia Helfter), for centuries. 


As revealed in Season 4, Vanessa is no longer the only one with unique vampire curing abilities.

Thanks to a lab experiment by Wilhelm (Neil McDonough) seeking to find a way to destroy the Dark One, Violet (Keeya King) and Jack (Nicole Munoz) were genetically engineered in a BlakTek lab with Vanessa's abilities, and have joined her in her fight against the vampires.


The series stars Kelly Overton as Vanessa van Helsing. It also stars Jonathan Scarfe as Axel, Tricia Helfer as Dracula, Nicole Munoz as Jack, Keeya King as Violet, and Aleks Paunovic as Julius.
