The second season of the series continued to unravel the mysteries around The Rising, lost alliances, the Van Helsing Heritages, along with the hope of saving humankind. Followed by the third season where Vanessa Helsing continues to thrive for survival and fighting against the forces of darkness to avoid the Dark One from being resurrected.
Season four started as a fresh start of Vanessa vowing to fight darkness and keeping The Dark One from resurrecting. Thinking that she is all alone, the story’s lead role continued with her mission and fought alongside two vampire hunters, Violet and Jack who are both the highlight of the season.
