'Helstrom': Meet Tom Austen, Sydney Lemmon and rest of the cast of Marvel series set to drop on Hulu

Here's all you need to know about the cast of Marvel's 'Helstrom' that will stream on Hulu from October 16

There's a strom coming. And no, we didn't get the spelling wrong. After what seems like eons of rumours and confusion, Marvel's 'Helstrom' is going to finally see the light of day.

Revolving around a family mystery and a dark past, the trailer and synopsis feature a brother-sister duo that take on the most demonic forces there are invading the Earth, using their unique skills and shared history to keep the darkness at the periphery of their lives. The character was brought to life in the 1970s comics when Marvel decided to experiment with the occult and arcane.

According to every comic story tradition, the character was re-written and retconned several times, but that still couldn't take away from his essence, and he makes for one of the most intriguing Marvel characters.

But the show promises something different. The synopsis reads, "Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in Marvel’s 'Helstrom'. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the terrorizing worst of humanity — each with their attitude and skills."

There's also a synopsis for the first episode that's revealed, which reads: "Daimon Helstrom investigates a possessed young boy in Oregon. Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Ana Helstrom stages an auction to expose a criminal. Disturbing events at St Teresa's cause concern as the siblings estranged Mother remains hospitalized." Meet the cast of the Hulu series.
