Van Helsing is a fantasy horror drama television series. Kelly Overton plays the titular character of the series,[1] which was inspired by Zenescope Entertainment's graphic novel series Helsing. A commercial-free advance preview of the pilot aired on July 31, 2016 on Syfy ahead of its September 23, 2016 premiere.[2][3][4] In December 2019, Syfy renewed the series for a fifth and final season which premiered on April 16, 2021,[5][6] and concluded on June 25, 2021.


Van Helsing is set in a post-apocalyptic near future. Vanessa Van Helsing, a descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, awakens from a coma after her supposed death to find herself in a post-apocalyptic world, three years after an eruption of the Yellowstone Caldera had blanketed the world in ash, blocking out sunlight and allowing vampires to overrun humanity. She is humanity's last hope, as her unique blood composition gives her the ability to turn vampires back into humans. With this secret weapon, Vanessa becomes a prime target for the vampires. She is protected by a Marine ordered to keep her safe, and the doctor who saved her, so she can lead a resistance against the vampires that plague the world's survivors.[7]

In the second season, Vanessa journeys east towards the safe haven of Denver, Colorado and discovers her long-lost sister Scarlett, who has been trained to kill vampires since birth. In the third season, Vanessa and Scarlett hunt the Elders, the original vampires, in order to defeat them for good. Following Vanessa's apparent death in the fourth season, the series switches focus to her long-lost biological daughters Violet and Jack as they face a new "daywalker" breed of vampires as well as the "Dark One" and ruler of the vampire species, Countess Olivia von Dracula and her brides, a former countess of Transylvania and de facto President of the United States.

Saving her, they discover that the woman is a vampire named Nina, whom Julius met in the 1980s, when he was living as a scavenger before she encouraged him to create his own pack. She explains that the Dark One has been gathering all the vampire broods together for something big, and killing those who refuse to join her. Nina leads them to a supposedly safe refuge, which is actually her territory, so that she can feed on captive humans to regain her strength. As Axel fights off more bounty hunters, Nina attempts to steal the compass so that she can use it to bargain with the Dark One. After Julius rejects her, Axel kills her and takes back the page.
597"Graveyard Smash"Leslie HopeJeremy Smith & Matt VenablesMay 28, 2021 (2021-05-28)N/A
The clues left behind by Jack lead Violet and Ivory to a church, where they reunite with Julius and Axel. Encountering the church's priest, they learn that his order has been protecting what Jack left behind -- a coffin containing Bathory's scrolls, and Jack herself preserved in a death-like slumber. Violet revives Jack with a bite, and Jack informs the group of her plan to turn Bathory human again so that she can complete the spell she began in the 18th century and seal the Dark One. The church is attacked by a group of vampires sent by Bathory, most of whom are killed by a passing chemical cloud, except for the leader who is mutated instead. While the humans attempt to escape through a hidden tunnel, a malfunctioning gate closes, killing the priest and trapping Violet and Julius in the church. A wounded Julius intentionally overdoses on the healing serum Doc gave him, turning him into a berserker and giving him the strength to fight and kill the mutated vampire before he succumbs to his wounds. Violet reunites with the others, and they set off to confront the Dark One.
608"Deep Trouble"Jacquie GouldJeremy Smith & Matt VenablesJune 4, 2021 (2021-06-04)0.23[78]
Axel, Ivory, Jack and Violet are attacked by Dracula's soldiers, who destroy their car and most of their supplies. To escape, the group flees into an abandoned mine. While making their way through the tunnels, they're attacked by a feral vampire, and in the process of fighting it off cause a cave-in that separates Axel and Ivory from Jack and Violet. Axel loses the magical compass map. As they look for an exit, Jack and Violet find a young girl who has been living in the mine, and realize that the vampire is her father, promising her that they'll help him. They reunite with Axel and Ivory just as they're about to kill the vampire, chasing it off instead. Jack and Ivory go to lure out the vampire and turn him human again, only for him to attack the group instead and then nearly have to kill him before Jack can bite and turn him. Afterwards, as the father and daughter choose to stay in the mine for safety, the group decides to split up to reach Washington, with Jack and Ivory going one way while Violet and Axel go another to lure Dracula's forces away.
619"The Doorway"Alexandra La RocheNeil LaButeJune 11, 2021 (2021-06-11)0.14[79]
Axel falls asleep as he and Violet make camp and finds himself at a farm, where he finds Vanessa laying injured after a shadowy figure stopped her from going through a doorway. As he helps Vanessa recover, she explains that they're in a part of the Dark Realm that has been designed to torment Vanessa with the memory of all the people she's failed to save. Talking with Axel, however, helps her realize that she in fact subconsciously created this place as a means of escaping the Dark Realm through the door, and that the figure guarding it is a manifestation of her own inner darkness. Accepting this, she absorbs the darkness into herself and opens the door. She then sends Axel back to his body before emerging from the Dark Realm into Washington, D.C., disguising herself as Nina in order to get close to Dracula and wait for the others to arrive.
6210"E Pluribus Unum"Jacquie GouldJonathan Lloyd WalkerJune 18, 2021 (2021-06-18)N/A
While making their way to Washington, Axel and Violet meet a young man named Aaron who asks for their help before being apparently abducted by a group of bikers led by a man named Hopper. Tracking the group to their hideout, they're shocked to learn that Aaron is the son of former President Davis Park, who was thought to have died in the Rising but has actually been a feral vampire this entire time, being kept in a cage by his son. The suspicious bikers, who are actually Aaron's bodyguards, confront Violet and Axel, but fail to stop Violet from biting Davis, returning his humanity. Aaron wants his father to use the Nuclear football to contact help in the Pentagon to both fight Dracula and to find Aaron's mother and sister, who disappeared in the Rising; however, emotionally broken, Davis tells his son that he got word of their deaths just before being turned. Refusing to believe this, Aaron runs off accompanied by Violet to track his family using a GPS tracker from the football. While the adults are tracking the pair, Hopper is killed protecting Davis from a vampire; when he and Axel find Aaron and Violet at the crash site of their family's motorcade, overlooking their bodies, he declares his renewed intent to fight back. He then uses the football to contact a friend at the Pentagon.
6311"Undercover Mother"Jacquie GouldJackie MayJune 18, 2021 (2021-06-18)N/A
Meeting a member of Hopper's group left behind by Axel to greet them, Jack and Ivory are smuggled past the defensive wall into Washington, which Dracula has turned into a police state. Finding a message from Vanessa, they are then contacted by a local resistance group that has been organized to oppose Dracula, including Sergeant Weathers from Fort Collins and a Roma descended from Bathory's clan, who recognizes Jack from the story of her exploits in the past. Meanwhile, Vanessa, still disguised as Nina, arrives at the White House just as Dracula executes all the vampire brood leaders as a show of force, and claims that she's killed Violet to win Dracula's favor. Later meeting with Jack, Vanessa prepares a trap by telling Dracula and Bathory where the resistance is hiding, only for Dracula to keep her at the White House while sending Bathory to attack the hideout sooner than expected. Aided by vampire special forces operatives, Bathory attacks and nearly claims the amulet from Jack before Vanessa remotely takes control of the other vampires and makes them attack Bathory; this gives Jack the opening to bite Bathory, making her human again but leaving her blind and seemingly psychotic. Sensing this, Dracula realizes Vanessa's deception and attacks her, with Vanessa retaliating by biting her.
6412"The Voices"Alexandra La RocheJackie MayJune 18, 2021 (2021-06-18)0.24[80]
Vanessa's bite fails to turn Dracula human again, but weakens her enough for her human host, Olivia, to fight her for control, which gives Vanessa an opportunity to escape. Reuniting with Violet and Axel, they join Jack with the resistance and learn that Bathory is still unstable. Axel goes with soldiers to rescue to the Vice-President, who has been detained by Dracula's vampires; while he's initially skeptical of their claims about Dracula impersonating the President, they eventually convince him and he arranges to have the White House secretly emptied of human personnel in order to clear a path to Dracula. Meanwhile, Vanessa drains the darkness from Bathory, restoring her sight and sanity, and allowing Jack to convince her to help use the scrolls to seal Dracula. However, Dracula regains control of herself and remotely takes control of Bathory to make her attack Jack and steal the amulet from her, opening it and freeing Dracula's stolen essence; horrified by this, Bathory jumps off a rooftop to avoid falling under Dracula's control again. At the White House, Dracula is restored to her full power and begins bringing about a permanent night.
6513"Novissima Solis"Michael NankinJonathan Lloyd WalkerJune 25, 2021 (2021-06-25)0.15[81]
Vanessa uses the Dark One's mark on Bathory's body to connect with Dracula's mind, making contact with Olivia. Afterwards, she reveals that she pulled the knowledge of how to read the scrolls from Bathory's mind, meaning that the heroes' plan could still work. While the resistance stays behind to protect President Park and Aaron, the Van Helsings, Axel and Ivory heads to the White House; however, Dracula senses them coming and unleashes an energy that turns every human in the area (excluding the Van Helsings and cured vampires) into vampires. Axel and Ivory rush back to protect the Parks, while the Van Helsings storm the White House, fighting their way through the vampiric Delta Force soldiers protecting it. Confronting Dracula in the Oval Office, she initially overpowers them, until Olivia starts fighting her for control of her body. This gives Vanessa time to paralyze Dracula with the scrolls and allow Jack and Violet to bite her, forcing the Dark One's essence out; with the amulet destroyed during the fighting, Vanessa sacrifices herself to trap the Dark One in her own body, putting herself in a death-like coma. With the Dark One sealed away, daylight returns and the vampires all become human again, with President Park being reinstated in order to begin rebuilding society. While Jack and Violet help the freed Olivia adapt to modern life, Axel stands guard over Vanessa's body, and in her mind Vanessa is reunited with the spirits of Susan and Dylan.
