Learn More About First Five Episodes Of ‘Helstrom’

Horror (and comic book) fans may have to wait another month for the debut of the Helstrom series, but Hulu is giving everyone a glimpse into what to expect.

The streamer has revealed the synopses of the first five episodes–of the 10 planned for Season 1–and these teasers shed considerable light on the brother and sister at the heart of the Marvel Comics-inspired storyline, according to CBR.com.

Helstrom, as reported here in Horror News Network, debuts Oct. 16 as part of the Huluween promotion. The show follows Daimon Helstrom (a professor of ethics by day and an exorcist by night) and his sister Ana (who runs an auction house), who are the children of a “mysterious and powerful serial killer.” In truth, their father is really a demon who drove their mother, Victoria, into an insane asylum. Using their supernatural powers, the siblings “hunt the worst of humanity.”

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

The first five episodes play out this way:

Episode 1Mother’s Little Helper (written by Paul Zbyszewski and directed by Daina Reed)–Daimon investigates a possessed boy in Oregon, while Ana stages an auction to expose a criminal.

Episode 2Viaticum (written by Blair Butler and directed by Anders Engstrom)–An accident leaves Daimon and Gabriella fighting to save a man’s soul, while a demon force tries to stop them.

Episode 3The One Who Got Away (Written by Marcus Dalzine and directed by Michael Offer)–Daimon and Ana learn more about the destruction their father left in his wake.

Episode 4Containment (written by Sheila Wilson and directed by Amanda Row)–A demonic enemy brings together an unusual group, and Ana tells Daimon about her extracurricular activities.

Episode 5Committed (written by Matt Morgan and Ian Sobel and directed by Jovanka Vuckovic)–Victoria’s health sharply declines, and Daimon makes a life-and-death discovery.

Helstrom was created by showrunner Paul Zbyszewski, who oversees the show along with executive producer Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television. The series is based on the Marvel Comics characters Daimon and Satana Hellstrom, created by writers Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich and artist John Romita Sr.
