Hulu’s Ghost Rider has been cancelled, but the series that follows the children of Satan hunting down riff raff is full steam ahead.
The Roy Thomas and Gary Friedrich created Daimon Hellstrom first made an appearance in Ghost Rider in the early 1970s, and was given his own book shortly after. The series will follow siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the children of an enigmatic and powerful serial killer. The pair use their powers for good, despite their origins, to track down criminals and various other types of scum that roam between Earth and Hell. It’s an update on the books also by Thomas and Friedrich starring Satana and Daimon (aka the children of Satan).
The main cast was announced at NYCC (from top left)…
- Tom Austen as Daimon Helstrom
- Sydney Lemmon as Ana Helstrom
- Elizabeth Marvel as Victoria Helstrom
- Robert Wisdom as Caretaker
- June Carryl as Dr. Louise Hastings
- Alain Uy as Chris Yen
- Ariana Guerra as Gabriella Rosetti
No news on release date right now – hopefully it sticks around. The attempt is at least confirmation of what some were expecting after the Netflix series were canned and the Fox/Disney merger went through – more grown-up oriented Marvel shows will be finding a home on Hulu. That includes a line up of original animated shows that were announced earlier this year.
