Helstrom arrived on Hulu on October 16th but fans who have binged their way through have been left asking if Helstrom will return for season 2.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has dominated the film industry for the past 10 years and plans for a plethora of TV series are well underway.
But whether or not those plans include Hulu’s newly-released Helstrom is a hot topic among fans who have been tuning in to the new series since it released.
Helstrom hit Hulu on October 16th and fans who have binged their way to the end have been left asking will Helstrom return for season 2?
Helstrom on Hulu
Heltstrom arrived on Hulu on October 16th, 2020.
The series, which is a standalone story in the MCU, tells the story of Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the children of a mysterious and powerful serial killer.
The estranged brother and sister duo, who have been cursed with some special spooky abilities must put their differences aside in order to hunt down the worst of humanity.
Helstrom season 2 renewal status
- Helstrom has not been renewed for season 2 at the time of writing.
Unfortunately for fans, it looks highly unlikely that the Helstrom siblings will be back for season 2 either.
That’s because the show is the product of Marvel Television, a division which no longer exists according to Decider as Marvel Studios (the division responsible for the films) look to expand the MCU onto the small screen via their shows on Disney+.
If Helstrom was to survive for a second season, it would need to generate a huge following given that the production company behind it is now defunct.
Prior to being shut down in December 2019, Marvel Television had touted a line-up of new dark and spooky series, including Ghost Rider, but many of these projects have been cancelled with Helstrom being one of the lucky few to survive.
Potential release date and plot
If, and this is a big if, Helstrom does get renewed for season 2, you’d normally expect a new season to arrive around a year later.
That would mean a potential second season would arrive in October 2021, although with the delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, season 2 would likely arrive later if Helstrom is indeed renewed.
Agonisingly, season 1 of Helstrom ended on one heck of a cliffhanger which will surely lead to calls for more from fans.
The season 1 finale sees the Helstrom siblings reunite and save their mother from the demon possessing her while Ana’s business partner, Chris, has kidnapped Daimon and Gabriella’s newborn child and taken it to a new and mysterious figure who fans suspect is Ana and Daimon’s father.
With more conflict brewing, the season comes to an end and fans are left waiting for news on a potential second season.
Season 1 of Helstrom is available to stream now on Hulu after releasing on October 16th, 2020.
