Images offer first look at the stars of Hulu’s Marvel series Helstrom

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

When the project first went into development for the Hulu streaming service, there were some cool plans in mind for the Marvel television series Helstrom. It was going to be, along with a Ghost Rider series and a couple other shows that never got announced, part of an endeavor called Adventure into Fear, which would dig into the darker side of the Marvel Universe. But then there was a major shake-up at Marvel TV, most of the shows that weren't intended for Disney+ came to an end, Ghost Rider was cancelled before it even went into production… and now Helstrom is heading toward its premiere as a holdover from a different era.

Helstrom will make its debut on Hulu this October, and IGN got their hands on a batch of images that offer the first look at the show's cast and characters. These images can be seen below.

Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon star in the show as Daimon and Ana Helstrom, 

the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills. 

Also in the cast are Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria Helstrom, "Plagued by demons both real and imagined, Victoria has been institutionalized for 20 years. While she struggles to be herself, she hopes to repair her relationship with her children"; Robert Wisdom as Caretaker, "a guardian of knowledge of the occult. He uses his knowledge and his relationship with Ana to help keep demonic forces at bay"; June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings, "a psychologist with a strong faith but an open mind. Hastings is head of the psychiatric hospital where Victoria is being monitored. She has watched over the Helstrom family for years, caring for them as best she can"; Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rossetti, "a woman balancing logic and faith. Gabriella arrives from the Vatican to help Daimon and Hastings uncover cases of demonic possession. She wants to save everyone she can, including Daimon"; Daniel Cudmore as Keith Spivey, "a nurse at St. Teresa’s, where Daimon and Ana’s mother, Victoria, has been institutionalized for the last 20 years";  David Meunier as Finn Miller, "part of a secret organization that handles work not for the faint of heart"; and Alain Uy as Chris Yen, "Ana's business partner and her closest friend — some would say surrogate brother. He carries out the bulk of the auction house's responsibilities and assists Ana with whatever she needs."

Directors of Helstrom episodes include Amanda Row, Michael Offer, Daina Reid, Sanford Bookstaver, and Jovanka Vuckovic. The show is a co-production between Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, and is executive produced by Jeph Loeb and Paul Zbyszewski.
