Marvel Animated Shows, Helstrom Safe At HULU

With Kevin Feige now in charge and having booted Marvel TV as well as canceling numerous projects, it is learned that the live-action Helstrom series and the adult animated shows are safe at HULU.

While at the 2020 Television Critics Association press tour on Friday, HULU content chief Craig Erwich briefly touched upon Helstrom and the Marvel TV animated series, offering they are coming "very soon," which also includes M.O.D.O.K., Hit Monkey, the Tigra & Dazzler Show, and Howard the Duck, with the four animated shows leading into a special animated event with Marvel's The Offenders.

Regarding the Marvel TV HULU shows, Erwich specifically mentioned M.O.D.O.K. and Helstrom (via Deadline):

On the programming front, Erwich briefly touched on Marvel series including Patton Oswalt’s animated series M.O.D.O.K – “it’s a whole new take and a very funny one” – and live-action satanic series Helstrom – “it’s in production now”.

Erwich also added at the press tour:

We’re in production on Helstrom. I’ve seen the first four episodes of that as well [as the animated M.O.D.O.K.]. I’m really excited about it. And it’s definitely different corner of the Marvel Universe in terms of its horror...

[Helstrom is] a really unique take on a horror show that has a very unique family situation at the center of it.
