Van Helsing Season 3 To Premiere This Fall

Van Helsing

Without a doubt, you're looking forward to another season of Van Helsing on Syfy. Perhaps you know that Syfy has picked up the dark fantasy series for Season 3 back in December 2017. According to the official announcement, production on Season 3 began in February 2018. However, Syfy has yet to announce the exact date for the upcoming season.

Nonetheless, we see two possible periods for the premiere. You may have noticed that the previous seasons started off in July and October, respectively. As a result, we have every reason to believe that the upcoming premiere is slated for this fall, likely in October of 2018. However, this is nothing but our forecast. So, we'd like to wait for the official news from Syfy to clarify the situation.

Frankly, many doubted that Van Helsing has a chance for another round on Syfy since the 2nd season premiere has lost about 63% of a target audience. However, as we've seen, the network nevertheless has opted to pick up the horror drama for a next installment. Indeed, the premiere has garnered less than half a million viewers (0.459) with a 0.15 demo rating among adults 18-49. However, even given the fact that these figures don't look impressive, they are entirely acceptable for such a cable network as Syfy.

Besides, the reaction of the target audience was much better versus Season 1. On Rotten Tomatoes, the 2nd chapter of Van Helsing holds a score of 3.7/5 and a 66% approval rating among the viewers. At the same time, on Metacritic, the rating was also favorable, 7.5/10. Therefore, nothing is surprising that Syfy made such a decision. On IMDB, Van Helsing has an overall score of 6.0/10 > 10,400 votes. Most likely, the network paid more attention to the response from critics and viewers than to a significant drop in the viewing audience. Such approach could eventually explain the favorable decision.

There is no official synopsis for the upcoming season of Van Helsing so far. However, according to the official announcement, you should expect "amazing adventures and a few new surprises as well." Besides, there would be more blood while the humankind would be close to "the edge of true chaos and utter darkness."

What's The Show Van Helsing About?

The story focuses on Vanessa Helsing, who wakes up in the world, controlled by vampires. Luckily, Vanessa is none other than a daughter of a renown vampire hunter. Vanessa soon figures out that she is special thanks to a unique blood composition that allows her to resist the vampires and turn them back to humans. This feature makes Vanessa the last hope of humankind. That's why it turns out that she is the one capable of stopping the vampire apocalypse.

Season 3 Release Date

As mentioned above, we expect the returning of Van Helsing for Season 3 this October. Unfortunately, Syfy has yet to say any words regarding the exact date for a next chapter. As a result, we are looking forward to any news from the cable network. We'll update this page with the exact data as soon as Syfy announces the specific release date for the third season of Van Helsing. Therefore, stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject.
