It was, therefore, noted that the season would air sometime in 2020. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, production was delayed. It is therefore expected that the show will air most likely in November or December 2020. But this series is delayed and released on April 16, 2021.
Syfy stated that season 5 would be the final chapter when the renewal status of season 5 was confirmed in December 2019. Unfortunately, there is no release date for the Van Helsing season 6. Fans would be better off not hoping or waiting for the same thing.
The future of ‘Van Helsing’ is uncertain at the moment. It’s possible that if it’s approved for season 6, it won’t be until 2022 or 2023, but this is just an assumption.
