'Helstrom' has been filming since last year, and the first photos from the set have finally surfaced much to the joy of fans.

Tom Austen's Daimon Helstrom can be seen on the Vancouver set, clad in a grey or olive jacket, jeans, and grey boots in photos that were snapped by Canadagraphs last month and released this week.

The photos were taken during photography on the show's seventh episode. In one photo, the production used cop cars that have the San Francisco PD insignia on it, which suggests that the show would be taking place in San Francisco. At present, there's no sign of the chest pentagram and the hellfire-wielding trident.

Not much is known about the show. Initially, it was meant to join Ghost Rider, along with a  few unannounced projects as a mini, horror-based universe on Hulu. However, after Marvel Studios took over, the plans had to change.


Earlier, this year, Hulu original content chief Craig Erwich had a lot to say about the show. "We're in production on [Helstrom]," Erwich shared. "I've seen the first four episodes of that and I'm really excited about it. It's definitely a different corner of the Marvel Universe in terms of its horror. It's a really unique take on a horror show that has a unique family situation at the center of it."

Apart from Austen, the cast includes Sydney Lemmon (Ana Helstrom), Elizabeth Marvel (Victoria Helstrom), Robert Wisdom (Caretaker), June Carryl (Dr. Louise Hastings), Ariana Guerra (Gabriella Rosetti), and Alain Uy (Chris Yen).  The official synopsis of the show on IMDB reads as, "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."

'Helstrom' has not yet been given a release date by Hulu. There are expected to be around ten episodes.
