"I couldn't be happier to learn that SYFY has renewed Van Helsing for a Season 3 - it has been a wonderful journey thus far, but we have much more of the 'Van Helsing' saga to tell before we're through," said Showrunner Neil LaBute. "It's great to be working with SYFY on this project again, along with Chad and Mike at Nomadic and all the others at Dynamic and Echo Lake as well. The writing team has some amazing adventures planned for our cast and a few new surprises as well - expect blood to be spilled and characters to die screaming while the fate of humanity slips closer and closer to the edge of true chaos and utter darkness."
"We are thrilled to be coming back for a Season 3 of our beloved Van Helsing. Neil LaBute, our writing team, returning directors and amazing cast are suited up and ready to go into battle once again," said Chad Oakes, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures.
"Here's to another year of creating the 'God Damned Apocalypse' that is Van Helsing. Hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as we enjoy making it! Thanks to SYFY, Neil LaBute and our entire team of creative artists," added Michael Frislev, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures.
"Thank you to Syfy and to all of the dedicated cast and crew," added Daniel March, Managing Partner, Dynamic Television. "It's exciting to continue the Van Helsing legacy and to deliver another season for our global fans."
