Is there any chance of 'Van Helsing' returning for season 6?
'Van Helsing' is a fantasy drama series created by Neil LaBute and directed by David Winning. The series is based on the graphic novel series 'Helsing' by Zenescope Entertainment. 'Van Helsing' season 5 concluded in June 2021. The series follows the story of Vanessa Helsing, a distant relative of the renowned vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing. She got resurrected in a post-apocalyptic world run by vampires. All five seasons of 'Van Helsing' received positive reviews from critics, and fans are still wondering if there will be more in the future. Is this the end of the 'Van Helsing' series?

Unfortunately, folks, 'Van Helsing' will no longer return for a sixth season. In December 2019, Syfy announced that the fifth season would be the last run for the series. Season 5 premiered on Syfy on April 16, 2021. It ran for 13 episodes and concluded on June 25, 2021. It is always sad to say goodbye to our favorite shows, but at least 'Van Helsing' had the chance to finish its story properly. Others have got canceled prematurely and left us with cliffhangers that will never get answered. If you want to return to the post-apocalyptic world, you can always rewatch the entire five seasons on Netflix.
In the five seasons of 'Van Helsing,' we witness Vanessa hunting down vampires, especially the Elders, to save humanity. At the end of season 5, Vanessa defeats Dracula in one last epic battle. She manages to bring back the daylight and transform all vampires into humans again by sealing the Dark One in her body. The series ended with Vanessa returning to a death-like coma, with the Dark One trapped inside her. Like a true messiah, she had made the ultimate sacrifice to save humanity.
The saga of Vanessa Van Helsing has ended in season 5.
However, if season 6 will happen in the future (although it is unlikely), we expect the story to pick up from the episode finale of the fifth season. It will be interesting to see what new challenges Jack and Violet will face protecting the human race.
