Hulu Teases October Debut Of ‘Helstrom’ With Revealing Photos

Marvel Studios is bringing horror to Hulu, as Helstrom–the much-anticipated series based on the longtime comic book characters–is set to premiere this October.

And the first-look photos on this page offer a sneak peek into the various personalities viewers can expect to see on the show this Halloween season, as reported by

The series–created for Hulu by Paul Zbyszewski–will adapt the adventures of Daimon Hellstrom (aka the Son of Satan) and his sister Satana, brought to life by Roy Thomas, Gary Friedrich and John Romita Sr. for Marvel Comics.

The show’s first season–slated for 10 episodes–will introduce Daimon and Ana Helstrom (a slight change from the 1970s comics), the children of a “mysterious and powerful serial killer” who set out to uncover their unique family history and “hunt the worst of humanity.”

The big twist in the series is that the Helstroms’ father isn’t just a run-of-the-mill baddie, but a demon–a reveal that has driven their mother Victoria into an insane asylum. And, oh yeah, Daimon and Ana learn they have supernatural powers of their own that come in handy during their quest.

Daimon, in the show, earns his daily bread as a professor of ethics–moonlighting as an exorcist–who is determined to root out demons in our world. His sister Ana, who runs an auction house, is also driven to rid our world of evil entities like her father.

The show stars Tom Austen as Daimon, Sydney Lemmon as Ana, Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria, Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rosetta, Robert Wisdom as the Caretaker, June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings and Alain Uy as Chris Yen.

Helstrom will have Zbyszewski as showrunner, with Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb as executive producer. The show is produced by ABC Signature Studios and Marvel Studios.

Zbyszewski remarked that the series will add “scares” to the Marvel formula of “heart, humor and action,” while striving to “dissect some of our deepest fears.” Loeb added that Helstrom will move into a new, “chilling” corner of the Marvel Universe.
