Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon will co-star in “Helstrom,” Hulu’s upcoming Marvel TV series. The duo will play Daimon and Ana Helstrom, two children of a mysterious and powerful serial killer, respectively.
“Homeland” alum Elizabeth Marvel will star as their mother, Victoria, who has been institutionalized for the last 20 years. The series also stars Ariana Guerra, Robert Wisdom, June Carryl and Alain Uy. “Marvel’s Helstrom” is based on the comic “Hellstrom,” which centered on Damion Helstrom, aka the Son of Satan.
In Hulu’s version, Daimon and Ana (who goes by Satana in the comic) Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills. It will debut next year.
“Marvel’s Helstrom” is executive produced by Paul Zbyszewski — who will serve as showrunner — and Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb.
“Helstrom” was ordered to series earlier this year along with “Ghost Rider,” which was set to see Gabriel Luna reprise his role from “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” However, the series was shelved following creative differences.
Along with “Helstrom,” Hulu has a bunch of other series from Marvel TV, including the third season of “Runaways” and an upcoming animation slate that will debut in 2020. That includes four adult animated series — “Howard the Duck,” “M.O.D.O.K.,” “Hit-Monkey” and “Tigra & Dazzler” — that will culminate in a crossover special, “The Offenders.” The four series are being written and executive produced by the likes of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Smith, Chelsea Handler, and the “Blades of Glory” directing team of Josh Gordon and Will Speck.
