Watch: SyFy's Van Helsing Trailer
Check out the trailer below for the new SyFy series Van Helsing starring True Blood's Kelly Overton as Vanessa Van Helsing, which sees her having powers that include being not only immune to vampires, but with the ability to turn a vampire human.
Obviously this makes Vanessa Van Helsing a big target of the vampires.
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.
"Van Helsing represents a new mythology in sci-fi by challenging traditional vampire rules," said Chad Oakes, Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures (Fargo, Hell on Wheels). "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."
Van Helsing, featuring 13-episodes, premieres September 23rd also starring Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Paul Johansson, David Cubitt, Tim Guinee. Neil LaBute (Your Friends & Neighbors, The Shape of Things) will serve as writer/showrunner on this new take on the Dracula myth.
