Too bad she has to rescue everyone she loves, save the town of Purgatory, and take on her most diabolical, Earp-hating enemy yet — all without her trustworthy gun, Peacemaker. And that’s just Monday…

Our extensive and detailed protocols have been blessed by all BC unions, guilds, ActSafe BC and WorkSafe BC. We are ready and look forward to a safe and successful shoot.”

Coates, best known for his role as Alexander “Tig” Trager in the FX series Sons of Anarchy, will play Count Dalibor, the husband of Olivia who despite his best intentions, makes some disastrous choices. Liebert will play Nina, a vampire with a colorful past that involves Julius, and a hidden agenda that entails a lot of death.

The three actors join series stars Kelly Overton (True Blood), Jonathan Scarfe (Hell on Wheels), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Aleks Paunovic (Continuum), Keeya King (Jigsaw) and Nicole Munoz (Defiance).

Van Helsing is a total re-imagination of a timeless brand, set in a world dominated and controlled by vampires. In its final season, Vanessa, Violet and Jack will risk it all to finally bring an end to the Dark One once and for all. The Van Helsings must figure out ways to escape and evade the various obstacles in their path to prevent them from their mission, leading to an epic final showdown between the Van Helsings and the Dark One.
