Van Helsing season 2 returns in the fall with the addition of Missy Peregrym to its powerful cast.
Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue) joins Syfy’s action-horror series Van Helsing as Scarlett Harker. She will play opposite lead star Kelly Overton’s Vanessa Van Helsing.
Apparently, Scarlett is a woman who has a shadowy past. Even so, her presence will reportedly be a big help in the fight against vampires.
Showrunner on Missy Peregrym Casting
Showrunner Neil LaBute is excited at the entry of Missy Peregrym to Van Helsing season 2, according to Deadline.
“We are so lucky and happy to have Missy join the Van Helsing team this season. The series thrives on female energy & power and we’re getting two barrels full with Missy’s talents. I can’t wait to see her jump into battle alongside Kelly Overton and the rest of the cast with all we have planned for them in Season Two.”
Chris Regina, Senior Vice President for Original Co-Productions at Syfy and Chad Oakes, Executive Producer and Co-Chairman of Nomadic Pictures are equally happy Missy Peregrym is joining the cast. Both have high praises for her energy, talent, and mental strength. Thus, their belief she would prove an asset to the Van Helsing TV series.
Missy Peregrym is a former fashion model turned actress. The Canadian actress is best known for her role in Rookie Blue as Officer Andy McNally.
Everything We Know So Far About Van Helsing Season 2
Production for Van Helsing season 2 is in progress and currently filming in Vancouver, BC. The exact return date for the Syfy series remains unknown although fans can likely expect it to be in the fall. Syfy gave its nod to the Van Helsing season 2 renewal last October 2016. According to Den of Geek, the next season will also run 13 one-hour long episodes.
The small screen adaptation of the Van Helsing mythology focuses on the next generation of vampire hunters. This time around, Vanessa Van Helsing (Overton) is leading the fight against them. Moreover, she is humanity’s last hope against them, according to the series synopsis from Syfy.
The network recently released the Van Helsing season 2 teaser. By the looks of it, the season could be the start of something truly amazing. Despite the hospital gown, Vanessa shows she is ready to kick ass as a Van Helsing.
