Tricia appears about 2 minutes in.
Creepshow, Shudder’s first longform original, has announced three new additions to the anthology series’ cast.
Joining the cast are actors David Arquette (Scream franchise), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Lucifer) and Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Stan Against Evil). Shudder also revealed the three new Creepshow stories in which they will appear, and announced Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, 1990’s Night of the Living Dead) as the director of Joe Hill’s “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” (adapted by Jason Ciaramella), marking Savini’s return to the franchise.
Helfer will star in “Lydia Layne’s Better Half,” written by John Harrison (based on a story by Harrison and Greg Nicotero) and directed by Roxanne Benjamin (Body at Brighton Rock). It centers on a powerful woman denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout.
The new cast join Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito and Tobin Bell, previously announced for the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed by Nicotero (The Walking Dead).
Creepshow is based on the 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The DNA of the original movie is firmly embedded in the new series: in addition to Savini’s and Barbeau’s return to the franchise, Joe Hill played comic-book-loving “Billy” in the original film’s wrap-around segments; John Harrison, who was 1st Assistant Director on 1982’s Creepshow and composed its theme, is back to direct segments of the series; and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero visited the first film’s set as a teenager, and contributed make-up effects to its 1987 follow-up, Creepshow 2.
One of the stars of Battlestar Galactica is returning to Syfy.
Tricia Helfer has signed on to the cable network’s Van Helsing, playing the most iconic vampire of them all: Dracula. She’ll appear in the show’s fourth season, which is in production and set for a fall premiere.
Season four will also feature Richard Harmon (The 100), Nicole Munoz (Defiance), Keeya King (Jigsaw) and WWE star Big Show, aka Paul Wight. Details of their roles are being kept under wraps for now.
“We are thrilled to welcome the talented Tricia Helfer to our Van Helsing family,” said Chad Oakes, executive producer and co-chairman of Nomadic Pictures, which produces the series. “She will be a fierce and unstoppable Dark One as the battle between good and evil reaches new heights.”
And a bit of news as well! We know from earlier news that Lucifer was getting a third season, though we were unsure whether or not Tricia was going to remain as a part of the cast. Thanks to this tweet, we have confirmation that Tricia will be in Season 3!
It is the second Fox drama series picked up for next season, joining flagship drama Empire. Lucifer is getting a renewal ahead of the other two WBTV dramas in contention, its Monday companion Gotham and promising freshman Lethal Weapon.
A low-key midseason entry last season, Lucifer exceeded expectations, earning a second-season renewal in May and then a Season 2 back order in October. It is running head-to-head in the ratings with the higher-profile, bigger-budget lead-in Gotham, both averaging a 1.1 adults 18-49 rating in Live+Same Day and and 1.9 in L+7.
Lucifer, based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer and Scarlett Estevez.
Lucifer’s second season returns from hiatus on May 1. Lucifer (Ellis) has gone off the grid and cut off all contact from his family and the police department following Chloe’s (German) near-death. But the murder of an up-and-coming guitarist causes him to resurface – with a new mystery woman. Meanwhile, Lucifer’s mom (Helfer) realizes she might have found a way to finally get them back to heaven.
No word yet on Tricia’s involvement in Season 3, but we’re very hopeful!
Premieres: Nov. 20
The film stars Stars: Tricia Helfer, Marc Blucas, and Lisa Durupt.
Sparks will fly when Lucifer brings the title character’s mom into the fold in season two.
“It’s given us a little piece of dynamite that we’ve given to the cast and exploded everything,” showrunner Joe Henderson told the crowd at the Fox drama’s Comic-Con panel Saturday.
Lucifer’s first season ended with the title character being fatally shot, and then resurrected by God. However, in exchange for his life, Lucifer promised God he would recapture a soul that had escaped from Hell — the soul of his mother.
“We had all these conversations about Lucifer family. … The big revelation we had midway through season one was: what about mom?” Henderson said. “That became a big piece of it that we hadn’t originally planned for.”
Playing Lucifer’s “nemesis/nurturer” mother as Henderson described the role is new series regular Tricia Helfer.
“The introduction of mom brings a whole new dynamic to the show,” star Tom Ellis said, saying the characters “behave differently” when she resurfaces. “You see the formidable characters be really not so formidable.”
The introduction of mom also further complicates the brotherly relationship Lucifer and Amenadiel. “I think we both have a different relationship with her. I think she’s going to come in the middle of that and play with that a little bit,” D.B. Woodside said
Added Helfer: “Mom kind of does try to smooth things over and get in the middle of it a little bit.”
One person mom will definitely clash with is Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt). “There is no love lost between Maze and mom,” Helfer teased.
