Helstrom has been sent to the great beyond: Hulu has canceled the Marvel horror series after only one season, EW has learned.

With this development, the era of live-action shows overseen by Marvel Television president Jeph Loeb has officially come to an end. Loeb oversaw the development of series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the Marvel-Netflix street-level dramas, Cloak & Dagger, and more; however, he stepped down from Marvel Television last year when the division was folded into the Kevin Feige-led Marvel Studios. And with the recent conclusion of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC, Helstrom was the final Loeb-produced live action show on the air when it premiered in October. (That being said, Loeb is listed as an EP on Hulu's forthcoming animated series M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey).

Executive produced by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Paul Paul Zbyszewski, the drama was Marvel's first major foray into horror. It followed Daimon (The Royals' Tom Austen) and Ana (Succession's Sydney Lemmon) Helstrom, the offspring of a serial-killing demon, as they used their inherited powers to fight evil. Elizabeth Marvel (Homeland) played their mother institutionalized and possessed mother Virginia.

Even though Helstrom is over, we already know this isn't the end of Marvel TV shows. In 2021, the studio will launch several new Disney+ superhero shows that are intimately tied to the MCU's movies, including WandaVision (Jan. 15), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (March 19), Loki (May 2021), and Ms. Marvel (late 2021). Also coming down the pike are Hawkeye (which is currently in production in New York) Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Secret Invasion, and Armor Wars.
