As some studios have begun their restart of production, a staple of SYFY is ready to get started. SYFY’s Van Helsing is back in production on its fifth and final season in Vancouver.
Nomadic Pictures and Dynamic Television announced work on the final 10 episodes for the action-horror series had resumed after shutting down on March 15th amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Production on the final run for Van Helsing also marks the first U.S. network series to restart location shooting in Canada. Chad Oakes, executive producer and co-chairman of Nomadic Pictures stated,
“We understand the herculean responsibility to be the first out of the gate and will proceed with every cast and crew members safety as our first priority,”
The first three episodes of the final season were shot on-location in Bratislava, Slovakia in January and February before production was halted in March.
Van Helsing is now in its fourth week of production, with the remaining episodes to also be shot in Kamloops, British Columbia. Syfy added it still expects the final 13 episodes of the epic tale to premiere this fall.
