Jonathan Lloyd Walker, the showrunner, who took over from Neil Labute in the fourth season, recently confirmed on Twitter that the production has wrapped, so fans would not have long to wait to see a very conclusion to the story of Vanessa Van Helsing, the descendant of the greatly famed vampire hunter who has the power to reverse the conversion of humans into bloodsucking fiends.
Entering our last week on #VanHelsing I must say thank-you to a group seldom thought about at season/series wrap. Family. Partners, kids, friends… all endure a lot of stress, separation and extra work supporting cast/crew through long hours & days. YOU make the dream possible.

“We are so proud of Van Helsing and would also like to thank Syfy and the great fans who embraced this series.
We are very excited to end the show on its terms and to give these characters, our story, and our fans the conclusion that they so richly deserve,” Daniel March, a managing partner for this show on behalf of Dynamic Television, notably stated after the show’s renewal announcement.
A 2020 date of release was always in the cards for Van Helsing season 5, and the production delays related to the coronavirus outbreak have not changed that expectation.
Executive producer named Chad Oakes speculated during the Comic-Con@Home panel of the show that the series would “return late fall, early winter, November, December and back on the air for the fifth season.” We will update this article once the exact date is known.

“Kim, Ali, and Steve are such incredible talents and we are more than thrilled to welcome them to our Van Helsing family,” said the executive producer and Nomadic Pictures co-chairperson, Michael Frislev in a press release after the production resumed in the summer.
Lead actress Kelly Overton was also notably in the background during the fourth season of Van Helsing, due to being pregnant during the filming, but this allowed other characters in the show to step to the forefront, including Nicole Muñoz as Jack and Keeya King as Violet, both of whom had their ties to the Van Helsing legacy.
