Marvel TV’s last live-action series Helstrom wraps production
Cast member Alain Uy took to Instagram (via Comic Book) to reveal that production has officially wrapped on Hulu’s upcoming first season of Helstrom, which is Marvel Television’s last live-action series following Jeph Loeb’s exit and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige’s full takeover on Marvel TV. The series will also be Hulu’s second live-action Marvel series after Marvel’s Runaways had debuted its third and final season last December.
Marvel’s Helstrom follows siblings and supposed serial killer offspring Daimon Helstrom (Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Lemmon). Plagued by their family background, the Helstrom’s will pursue the world’s vilest of the vile — with some family drama of their own.
Daimon Helstrom is a professor of ethics who moonlights as an exorcist. Daimon has no illusions about saving a world he has no patience for; he just hopes he can help a few of the people closest to him. In his battle against a hidden world, Daimon is determined to root out demons as they arise, and will not stop until they’re vanquished.
Ana Helstrom runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others. Traumatized by her father as a child, Ana is driven to rid the world of those like him, even as she secretly worries her father will return.
The series stars Tom Austen (Grantchester, The Royals) as Daimon Helstrom, Sydney Lemmon (Fear the Walking Dead) as Ana Helstrom, Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland, Unbelievable) as Victoria Helstrom, Ariana Guerra (Raising Dion) as Gabriella Rosetta, Robert Wisdom (Ballers) as the Caretaker, June Carryl (Mindhunter) as Dr. Louise Hastings, and Alain Uy (The Passage) as Chris Yen.
The 10-episode first season of Marvel’s Helstrom is executive produced by Paul Zybszewski who will serve as showrunner. Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb will also executive produce. It is expected to debut next year.
