Hulu Releases Episode Synopses For Marvel’s Helstrom
Next month, Marvel will debut its scariest small-screen offering yet with Helstrom. Although Hulu dropped the series’ first trailer during July’s [email protected] event, there’s still a lot we don’t know about the story. Fortunately, Hulu has just posted synopses for the first five episodes for anyone too impatient to wait for the October premiere.
The synopses also give fans a peek at the talent that Helstrom’s producers have assembled in its writers room. Some highlights include Marcus Dalzine (Doom Patrol), Matt Morgan and Ian Sobel (SYFY’s 12 Monkeys), and former G4 mainstay Blair Butler.
