Helstrom is due to arrive on Hulu soon and the series breaks away from the Marvel universe to tell a standalone story of two heroes. Daimon and Ana Helstrom hunt down the worst dregs of humanity in this Marvel Television production, which came to light in May 2019. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about what to expect in the upcoming episodes.

How many episodes are in Helstrom?

Production for this new series started in October 2019 in Vancouver, and the series was originally going to be called Omens.

Tom Austen was cast as Daimon Helstrom, an ethics professor, and Sydney Lemmon plays Ana, his half-demon sister who runs an auction house.

They were both children of a notorious serial killer and their mother Victoria (Elizabeth Marvel), had been institutionalised at a psychiatric hospital.

Executive producer Paul Zbyszewski said the series would be unlike any other Marvel work as it hopes to dissect people’s deepest fears.

Deadline said: “Plagued by their family background, Grantchester and ex-The Royals blackmailing bodyguard Austen and Fear TWD alum Lemmon will pursue the world’s vilest of the vile – with some family drama of their own.”

The first season will be made up of 10 episodes and they will all land on Hulu at the same time, on October 16.

Fans will be able to binge their ways through the series, however those in the UK may have to wait to be able to watch the episodes.

Each of the episodes have been given their own titles, and they are as follows:

Episode 1 – Mother’s Little Helpers

Episode 2 – Viaticum

Episode 3 – The One Who Got Away

Episode 4 – Containment

Episode 5 – Committed

Episode 6 – Leviathan

Episode 7 – Scars

Episode 8 – Underneath

Episode 9 – Vessels

Episode 10- Hell Storm

Judging from the episode titles, the first episode is likely to delve more into Daimon and Ana’s relationship with their mother. Fans can also expect a showstopping finale in Hell Storm.

Initially it was believed the first three episodes would air on Hulu at the same time and then the remaining episodes would air weekly.

However according to the show’s Twitter account, it said: “Every family has their demons… All episodes of #Helstrom premiere October 16, only on

@hulu.”

The comic book character Daimon Hellstrom first made an appearance in the Ghost Rider comics back in 1973, and he was made subject to his own series later on.

Both siblings have demonic powers and they are able to travel between their own world and Hell.

Daimon is determined to save those he cares about from demons, and his sister is equally as passionate about hunting down people who hurt the innocent.

The series also stars Robert Wisdom as demon fighter Caretaker, who acts as a guardian of the occult.

Ariana Guerra plays Gabriella Rossetti, who acts as an aid for the Helstrom siblings, and she is an agent of the Vatican.

Louise Hastings (June Carryl) runs the hospital where Victoria Helstrom is staying, and Chris Yen (Alain Uy) is Ana’s friend and business partner.

Fans were treated to the first few minutes of the series during the New York Comic-Con event, which took place on October 9, 2020.

The 10-part series is due to air as part of the streaming platform’s ‘Huluween’ haunting programme schedule.

Actor Austen has been keeping fans up to date with the series on his Instagram account, and he shared a poster of the two siblings with the message: “Family reunion”.

One fan said: “Wohh this looks so cool how your heads are connected through an ominous twirly cloud, love it love this, gonna dress up for the first episode viewing.”

Actress Lemmon has also been posting updates about the series on her social media account, saying: “October 16!! I’m so excited to share this with you.”

The trailer is available to watch online now and a voice is heard saying: “For centuries we have been fighting and keeping track of different things that move in and out of this world.

“The most dangerous ones, we find a way to contain. This is one of the worst ever.” Daimon is then seen visiting his mother in a psychiatric unit and she has been possessed by demons.
