Despite multiple Marvel series being put on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, Marvel Televisions final series Helstrom escaped production shutdowns and has officially wrapped.
The news was confirmed via Instagram by Alain Uy, who plays Chris Yen on the series. You can check out the screenshot from his Instagram Story which has since disappeared below.
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 the aforementioned 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.”
Helstrom will be directed by Daina Reid (The Handmaid’s Tale), along with Finnish director Anders Engström. 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.
Helstrom will debut on Hulu later this year.
