The upcoming Helstrom series from Marvel TV and Hulu welcomes a comic book veteran into the fold with Daniel Cudmore officially joining the cast. As reported by Deadline, the actor, who played the role of Colossus in several X-Men films, is set to recur in the show, which will debut sometime next year.
Cudmore will play the part of Keith Spivey, a nurse at St. Teresa’s, the location where Victoria Helstrom is held institutionalized heading into this story. The previously-announced cast for the series is led by Tom Austen and Sydney Lemmon.
Helstrom is a series with close ties to the Ghost Rider franchise. It follows Daimon, aka the Son of Satan, and Ana Helstrom, the offspring of a mysterious serial killer, as they work to track down the worst of humanity. Daimon’s character first appeared in the debut issue of Ghost Rider Vol 2 back in 1972, while Ana’s (also known as Satana in the comics) was introduced in Vampire Tales. Paul Zbyszewski is attached to this project as showrunner and executive producer.
Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland, Gifted) will play the long-institutionalized serial killer, Victoria Helstrom. The character’s offspring, Daimon and Ana Helstrom, will take the lead in this story and will be played by Tom Austen (The Royals) and Sydney Lemmon (Fear the Walking Dead, Succession), respectively. The cast also includes Robert Wisdom (The Dark Knight Rises), June Carryl (Mindhunter), Ariana Guerra (Five Feet Apart), and Alain Uy (True Detective), and Daniel Cudmore (X-Men films, Twilight series).
The series is set to hit Hulu sometime in 2020 with a ten-episode debut season. Stick around with us on Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates ahead.
