Not every Marvel project is a slam dunk. Case in point: Hulu has pulled the plug on Helstrom–the series based on the longtime Marvel Comics horror characters–after just one season.
Hulu–one of the streaming services run by Disney (who also owns Marvel Comics)–this week brought the ax down on Helstrom, a product of the now-defunct Marvel Television operation, as reported by Deadline.
The show–which debuted Oct. 16 and ran just a single 10-episode season–followed Daimon Helstrom (an ethics professor by day and an exorcist by night) and his sister Ana (who ran an auction house), the children of a man believed to be a serial killer but who, in reality, was “a demon who drove their mother into an insane asylum.” In response, the siblings used their “supernatural powers to hunt the worst of humanity.”
Helstrom starred Tom Austen as Daimon, Sydney Lemmon as Ana, Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria, Robert Wisdom as The Caretaker, Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rosetti, June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings and Alain Uy as Chris Yen.
Helstrom–created by showrunner Paul Zbyszewski–was loosely based on the Marvel Comics characters of Daimon and Satana Hellstrom, created by writers Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich and artist John Romita Sr.
Daimon (also known as the Son of Satan) debuted in Ghost Rider No. 1, while Satana first appeared in Vampire Tales No. 2, both of which hit the stands back in 1973.
