CBS has come out the winner in a bidding battle to grow to be the house to a brand new TV collection based mostly on Dracula’s legendary foe Dr. Abraham Van Helsing… and no, this challenge doesn’t (regardless of the picture above) have something to do with the 2004 Hugh Jackman film. Or the Van Helsing present that ran on Syfy for 5 seasons, wrapping up in 2021.

Deadline studies that this modern model of monster hunter Dr. Abraham Van Helsing makes use of his uniquely inquisitive thoughts working alongside his ex, relentless FBI particular agent Mina Harker, to resolve New York Metropolis’s most harrowing circumstances.
