The core cast and plot of Hulu’s upcoming Helstrom series has been announced via Deadline.
Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon will play Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the children of long-incarcerated serial killer Victoria Helstrom, played by The Crown‘s Victoria Marvel, who travel the country hunting down “the vilest of the vile.” In comic books, Daimon Hellstrom (note the extra ‘L’) is billed as the “Son of Satan,” while his sister goes by the name “Satana.”
Rounding out the show’s principle cast are four more actors, all in yet-to-be named roles, including Raising Dion’s Ariana Guerra, Ballers’ Robert Wisdom, June Carryl and Alain Uy.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent,” showrunner Paul Zbyszewski told Deadline. “From the beginning, we knew we’d need a group of actors who were multifaceted, who could play all the chords any great Marvel show promises to play, from dramatic thriller to comedy to action. It’s going to be really fun to watch them work.”
“Marvel Television is thrilled to have such an amazing cast that enriches Paul’s fantastic writing,” added Marvel head of TV Jeph Loeb. “The ensemble is the perfect way to bring our audience into our Adventure into Fear franchise causing delicious nightmares of what’s to come!”
No projected premiere date for Hellstrom has been announced.
