Van Helsing is a supernatural drama television series that premiered on Syfy in 2016. The show follows the journey of Vanessa Van Helsing, played by Kelly Overton, who is resurrected and discovers that she is an ancestor of the famous vampire hunter, Abraham Van Helsing. Vanessa awakens in a world dominated by vampires who have taken over the planet, and her unique genetic makeup makes her the only hope that humanity has to defeat them.

The series is set in a post-apocalyptic world where vampires have taken over and enslaved humanity. Vanessa is initially confused and disoriented and has no memory of what happened before she was brought back to life. A group of survivors discovers her and takes her in, and they soon realize the extent of her abilities. Vanessa has the power to not only fight vampires, but also to turn them back into humans. Vanessa embarks on a mission to find her daughter, who was taken from her during the initial vampire takeover, and stop the vampire menace once and for all.

The show is led by a talented cast of actors, including Kelly Overton as Vanessa Van Helsing, Jonathan Scarfe as Axel Miller, David Cubitt as John, Hilary Jardine as Susan, Vincent Gale as Flesh, Christopher Heyerdahl as Sam, and Rukiya Bernard as Doc. The cast chemistry is incredible, and the actors’ performances are truly outstanding.

The show blends horror, action, and drama together to create a unique storyline that offers a fresh take on the genre. The show’s focus on the emotional struggles of its characters set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world makes it a standout in the genre. It uses the supernatural elements to explore deeper themes like redemption, love, and sacrifice. Each episode is action-packed, and the story is told at a brisk pace, keeping viewers engaged and invested in the outcome.

Throughout the series, Vanessa faces numerous challenges and obstacles, both physical and emotional. She struggles with her past traumas and the guilt of not being there for her daughter. She must also navigate complex relationships with the other survivors who have their own motivations and secrets. There are also numerous twists and turns in the plot that keep the viewers guessing.

One of the most impressive aspects of Van Helsing is its creature design. The show features an array of different vampires, each with unique abilities and characteristics. The vampires come in various forms, from the classic Dracula-style vampire to twisted, animalistic monstrosities. The show’s makeup and special effects teams outdo themselves with each new vampire introduced.

The show’s setting is also a highlight. The world of Van Helsing is bleak and oppressive, and the remnants of civilization are scattered and under constant threat. The show’s cinematography captures the post-apocalyptic vibe perfectly, making every location feel dangerous and uncertain.

The five-season run of Van Helsing comes to a dramatic conclusion with an epic showdown between Vanessa and the vampire queen, who has been the main antagonist throughout the series. The final season provides closure for Vanessa’s character and the other survivors, and the resolution is both satisfying and incredibly emotional.

In conclusion, Van Helsing is a must-watch show for fans of the supernatural, post-apocalyptic genre. The show’s unique take on the vampire mythos, the highly-qualified ensemble cast, and high-quality production values make it a standout series. The show blends horror, action, and drama seamlessly and provides an emotionally resonant journey for its viewers from start to finish. If you’re looking for a series that will keep you on the edge of your seat while tugging at your heartstrings, Van Helsing is the perfect pick.

Van Helsing is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (66 episodes). The series first aired on September 23, 2016.
