Marvel Television and Hulu have officially announced the cast for the new Helstrom live-action series. As revealed by Deadline, the show will feature some rising talent alongside some reliable character actors. Marvel's Helstrom is set to premiere on Hulu, which Disney owns, next year with a 10-episode run.
Following the story of Daimon and Ana Helstrom, two siblings of a notorious serial killer, the series promises a somewhat darker adaptation than Marvel's usual cinematic flair. Tom Austen will take the role of Daimon Helstrom, while Succession and Fear the Walking Dead alum Sydney Lemmon stars as Ana Helstrom. The rest of the cast is rounded out by Homeland's Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria Helstrom, Ballers actor Robert Wisdom as Caretaker, Mindhuner's June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings, Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rosetti, and Alain Uy of The Passage and Paper Tigers as Chris Yen.
"We feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a cast loaded with this much talent," said Helstrom showrunner and producer 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."
No premiere date has been set for Marvel's Helstrom just yet, but production is set to start in Vancouver, Canada any day.
