Yesterday, Syfy announced that the filming for Van Helsing Season 5 has resumed for its final run. The horror series from Dynamic Television and Nomadic Pictures is on its end journey, where survivors and vampires are ready to battle for their existence. Recently, the network confirmed who will reprise their roles. Along with them, the network also announced the new faces who are joining the show. No doubt, the final run would be as powerful as its other parts, since the characters arriving can topsy-turvy your world. Let’s have a look.
Van Helsing, created by Neil LaBute, is a dark fantasy horror drama series on Syfy. The series based on Zenescope Entertainment’s graphic novel title Helsing. It follows the struggles of Vanessa Van Helsing (Kelly Overton), daughter of Abraham Van Helsing. She has a unique blood structure that can turn vampires human. She has awakened from a coma in a world where vampire rules. It happened when the Yellowstone Caldera erupted, covering the world in ash, cutting off the path of sunlight and permitting the vampires to invade humanity. However, because of her blood, she became a prime target for the vampires. But, she has been protected by the doctor who saved her and a Marine.

Further, the executive producer and co-chairman of Nomadic Pictures, Chad Oakes, admired the team, including crew, writers, directors, procedures, and executive team. He said it wouldn’t be possible if the team couldn’t work on the safety measures. Chad said that they believe that their team safety is first. So it’s their duty to get their team’s health check-up.
Chad said: “The safe and active return to production results from 12 weeks of tireless efforts. On behalf of our entire executive team, directors, producers, writers, and crew. It would not be possible without the endless discussion, drafting, and execution of our safe return to work protocols with all the unions and guilds. We understand the tough duty. To be the first out of the gate. And proceed with every cast and crew member’s safety as our priority.”
