Hulu’s upcoming series Helstrom from Marvel Television has officially kicked off production, and now the cast has been revealed.
The series will be led by Tom Austen (The Borgias) as Daimon Helstrom aka Son of Satan and Sydney Lemmon (Fear The Walking Dead) as Ana Helstrom aka Satana.
Homeland‘s Elizabeth Marvel also joins Helstromas Victoria Helstrom, Daimon and Ana’s mother who’s been institutionalized for 20 years due to all the literal and imaginary demons plaguing her.
Rounding out the new cast are Robert Wisdom (Watchmen) as a guardian of occult knowledge Caretaker, who uses his insights and relationship with Ana “to help keep demonic forces at bay”; June Carryl (Mindhunter) as Dr. Louise Hastings, the head psychologist at the hospital monitoring Victoria; Ariana Guerra (Insatiable) as Gabriella Rosetti, a woman from the Vatican helping Daimon and Hastings “uncover cases of demonic possession”; and Alain Uy (The Passage) as Ana’s business partner and closest friend Chris Yen, who “carries out the bulk of the auction house’s responsibilities and assists Ana with whatever she needs.”
In a statement, Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb calls the ensemble “the perfect way to bring our audience into our Adventure into Fear franchise causing delicious nightmares of what’s to come!”
Helstrom will be directed by Daina Reid (The Handmaid’s Tale), along with Finnish director Anders Engström, who are friends at HN Entertainment reported last week, the series was written by Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) who will also serve as executive producer and showrunner with Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.
