This bit of information dropped during the Hulu Newfront 2020 presentation today. The company revealed that the Marvel series Helstrom will air as part of the streaming service’s Huluween slate probably sometime in October.
Finally, the platform unveiled a number of titles for its Huluween strand. Originals launching around the spooky holiday including horror film Books of Blood, based on Clive Barker’s book and starring Anna Friel, Rafi Gavron, Britt Robertson and Yul Vazquez, horror satire feature Bad Hair starring Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Jay Pharoah, Lena Waithe, Blair Underwood, Laverne Cox and James Van Der Beek, Marvel Studios’ Helstrom and Mary Laws’ Monsterland.
Despite the huge Marvel brand attached to it, there’s been virtually no news about this show since it was greenlit. The show was, oddly, the only survivor in the axing of multiple Marvel TV projects. The cast announcement went under the radar. We don’t know what exactly to make of this show in the wake of the dissolution of Marvel TV but it’s happening.
