Several months ago Marvel Television announced plans for a live-action Helstrom series which will debut on HULU in North America. Now the studio has announced the cast for production which is due to start shooting soon.
In Marvel’s Helstrom series, Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills.
Tom Austen (Grantchester, The Borgias) will star as Daimon Helstrom, a professor of ethics who moonlights as an exorcist, Daimon has no illusions about saving a world he has no patience for; he just hopes he can help a few of the people closest to him. In his battle against a hidden world, Daimon is determined to root out demons as they arise, and will not stop until they’re vanquished.
Sydney Lemmon (Succession, Fear The Walking Dead) stars alongside Austen as Ana Helstrom. By day, Ana runs a successful auction house and suffers no fools, but her true interest lies in hunting down those who hurt others. Traumatized by her father as a child, Ana is driven to rid the world of those like him, even as she secretly worries her father will return.
Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland, The Meyerowitz Stories) will play Victoria Helstrom. Plagued by demons both real and imagined, Victoria has been institutionalized for twenty years. While she struggles to be herself, she hopes to repair her relationship with her children.
Also starring are Robert Wisdom (Ballers) as Caretaker, June Carryl (Dead Women Walking) as Dr. Louise Hastings, Ariana Guerra (Insatiable) as Gabriella Rosetti and Alain Uy (The Passage) as Chris Yen.
“We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent,” said series Executive Producer and Showrunner Paul Zbyszewski. “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,” said Executive Producer and Head of Marvel Television, 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!”
Marvel’s Helstrom is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney Television Studios.
