Helstrom is one of the most unique Marvel shows to grace the Hulu platform and the Marvel universe in general. It is unlike any other show that we have ever seen before from Marvel, and carries a vibe that remains unparalleled. Instead of the usual Marvel affair, where superhero powers and theatrics are the star of the show, Helstrom brings forward a completely different side of the comic book studio. Subdued and Understated in its nature, Helstrom Season 2 is expected to be quite dark and intense. And it makes no effort to mask that with undue humor and anticlimactic dialogue. And that makes for a really interesting watch. The debut Season of Helstrom came two years ago, and was largely well received by audiences at Hulu. But since then, we have not seen another episode from the show. So what happened to Helstrom Season 2? Read on to find out.

Helstrom Season 2: About The Show
Helstrom is a show that takes place in the Marvel Universe. Surely many of you here are fans of Marvel. I am too. The show is about two siblings Daimon and Ana Helstrom, who belong to the infamous Helstrom family, and hence the name of the show. They are born to someone who is as evil as he is a genius. The children of a serial killer, are born with abilities far beyond those of humans. What doesn’t help the fact is that their mother is possessed by a demon, and is giving rise to other such demons. And so, the show begins and we see the siblings being reunited with their family, and coming to terms with the fact that there is more to this than meets the eye.
Helstrom’s debut season was met with a generally lukewarm response from the fans as well as the critics but still happened to be one of the better shows on Hulu at the time. The first season ended on a cliffhanger and quite a major one at that. While the Helstroms have mostly gathered back together, there are still loose ends that need to be tied. There are those that are against the Helstroms’ demonic vessel birthing process and would go to great lengths against them. Gabriella and Chris’ fate is still unknown and was left to be revealed in the second season of the show. But the major cliffhanger comes in the form of the character played by Mitch Pileggi. Rumored to be the father of Ana and Daimon, his identity was not revealed, and the show left that for Helstrom Season 2 too.

But amidst all the controversy, how would the show cope? Read the article to find out.
Helstrom Season 2: Where Is It?
Now, given the fact that Season 1 was left on such a huge cliffhanger, it would make a lot of sense for Hulu to capitalize on all that potential. But it seems that it is not the case. The studio that was behind Helstrom was shut down and disbanded, and since then, Hulu announced that Helstrom Season 2 has been canceled. This news came as quite a shock to the fans given the short run of the series. But Helstrom wasn’t the only show that was canceled in this manner. Marvel went on to cancel a lot of its shows in this manner. And it is just sad.
Marvel canceled Iron Fist in the same way back in 2018. Iron Fist Season 3: Latest News talks all about this and much more. Suffice to say, this isn’t the first time Marvel has pulled a stunt like this. Iron Fist was canceled in pretty much the same manner, and it was really sad to see. What we can take away from this is the fact that Helstrom doesn’t really have a future in the Marvel Universe. So it would be surprising to see the second season of the show ever being picked up again. By all means, you can let go of any hopes you might have had.
Helstrom Season 2: Outlook
With Marvel canceling yet another show in its development stages, I think it is time that we expect that the transition to Disney+ is a rough one. And all of this is just weight that Marvel felt that they had to shed off. It is just the way they work, and no show is ever guaranteed a renewal. In the meanwhile, you can watch the first and only season of the show, and enjoy it for what it is.
