Syfy’s bringing the upcoming horror TV series Van Helsing to the 2016 San Diego Comic Con. Comic Con attendees will have the opportunity to check out the first episode of the 13 episode season one which won’t officially debut until September 23, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT. Season one stars Kelly Overton, Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Paul Johansson, David Cubitt, and Tim Guinee, with writer Neil LaBute as showrunner.
“Van Helsing represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules,” stated Chad Oakes, Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures. “The series is unique in exploring a world completely dominated by vampires, while the human characters have to learn the importance of working together to ensure their survival.”
The Plot: 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.
