Although Hulu made the horrible mistake of not moving forward with Marvel Television’s ‘Ghost Rider,’ the streaming studio appears to still want to release a ‘Helstrom’ series. Now, breakdowns of three of the supporting characters they want on the show have been released.
Since the initial announcement, we’ve learned that Daina Reid (‘The Handmaid’s Tale’) is directing the series with Finnish director Anders Engström based on a script by Paul Zbyszewski (‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..’) Zbyszewski is also slated to serve as an executive producer with Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.
The series and leading characters are as follows:
- [M.A.R.D.U.K.] 30s-50s: Ana and Daimon’s father. A notorious serial killer who seemingly came back from the dead after being shot in the head.
- [ MR. C.A.V.A.L.L.O.] 30s-40s: seek Ana and Daimon’s help after his son exhibited traits of “demon possession.”
- [ CARL ] 40s-50s, Black: an old friend of Ana. Call ber to investigate a strange murder case after three bodies were found in the desert.
If you’re not familiar with ‘Helstrom,’ this should help:
Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in Marvel’s Helstrom. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills. Marvel’s Helstrom is executive produced by Paul Zbyszewski, who will serve as showrunner and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb.
As we know, the studio is taking liberties with the source material as Daimon was initially the literal Son of Satan and went by the same name while his sister was known as Satana. It sounds like some of their origins were a bit too dark for the characters if they were downgraded from the devil to a serial killer for a father.
Production for the series is slated to begin on October 7th, 2019, and run through February in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. That is, of course, if Hulu doesn’t pull the plug on this one as well. At this time, it isn’t clear if this new “Terror” line will still kick off a fully realized set of “Adventures Into Fear” shows or if this will be a fully standalone series.
