Syfy’s ‘Van Helsing’ Series to Concentrate on the Hunter’s Daughter

Prepare for a new spin on the Dracula myth.

Deadline is reporting that Syfy has picked up a 13-episode order for Van Helsing, with writer/showrunner Neil LaBute heading the series.

Instead of concentrating on a male vampire hunter from gothic history, Syfy’s version of Van Helsing will follow the legendary hunter’s daughter, Vanessa Helsing,  who finds herself “resurrected five years in the future to find out that vampires have taken over the world.” According to Deadline, Vanessa will realize she possesses an unique power over the vampires which will allow her to serve as humanity’s last hope against the undead threat.

Van Helsing will begin production in January 2016.
