In the fourth season of Syfy’s vampire hunting smash hit ‘Van Helsing’ we’ll see our hero going up against the most iconic of all the vampires as Tricia Helfer (‘Lucifer’,’Battlestar Galactica‘) is set to play Dracula! Clearly, we’re not getting Vlad the Impaler here but a new take on the iconic bloodsucker. As the show is already known for following Vanessa Helsing played by Kelly Overton in a world overrun by vampires, it should come as no surprise that we’ll be getting a change here.
Any excuse to have Helfer back in an active genre role is one we’ll happily bite into!
The fourth season is currently in production and is slated to come out this fall. As to Helfer’s casting, Chad Oakes, who is the executive producer and co-chairman of Nomadic Pictures which produces the series, has shared with fans that:
“We are thrilled to welcome the talented Tricia Helfer to our Van Helsing family. She will be a fierce and unstoppable Dark One as the battle between good and evil reaches new heights.”
Helfer isn’t the only new cast member either as “Richard Harmon (‘The 100’), Nicole Munoz (‘Defiance’), Keeya King (‘Jigsaw’), and WWE star Big Show, aka Paul Wight” have all joined the cast in mystery roles.

Van Helsing is set in the near future, where vampires have risen and taken control. Vanessa Van Helsing is humanity’s last hope, as her unique blood composition gives her the ability to turn vampires human. With this secret weapon, Vanessa becomes a prime target for the vampires. Van Helsing comes from the producers of Fargo and Hell on Wheels.
