The Cast

The Van Helsing TV series takes the title character and flips the gender—this time, Van Helsing is actually short for Vanessa Helsing, played by Kelly Overton. The beautiful Massachusetts-born actress is fully equipped to take on her role as the show’s lead star. Overton grew up a star athlete, playing basketball, soccer and even ran hurdles! Her athletic abilities will definitely come in handy and make her role more authentic. She’s very experienced in the acting field as well, as she’s made a plethora of appearances since 2000. She’s acted in Without a Trace, NCIS, Beauty and the Beast, True Blood, and Legends.

A Twist on the Genre

In an article published in The Los Angeles Times, television critic Mary McNamara shows how Van Helsing is an attempt to take an overused genre and do something new with it. With shows like The Walking Dead gaining as much popularity as it has, the post-apocalyptic genre is easy bait for viewers. That being said, some believe the genre has been overdone and plots seem recycled and repetitive. With a female lead, perhaps Van Helsing will do the genre a much-needed favor and spice things up! The female lead isn’t the only new thing LaBute is delivering to audiences—in this series, monsters get a chance for redemption! Although Vanessa Helsing has the power to fight the monsters, she also has the power to make them human again. Now, that’s something we haven’t seen too much of!


Whether the genre has worked itself into the ground or not, it’s up to you to decide whether Van Helsing is a worthy endeavor or not. Be sure to watch the season 1 premiere tonight, September 23 at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy.
