So there's not a chance in Hell (pun intended) that this will get renewed, but just thought I'd sound off here to recommend it: it's worth your viewing time and if it's the last hurrah of the old Marvel TV, it's a fitting sendoff.  I love the cast, the scripts had great dialogue, and the stories explored interesting side-roads of what can be the overused possession sub-genre.

I never read the comics, so I have no idea how closely this hews to them (I suspect not a whole lot).  The soundtrack is BOSS, too, a nice bonus.  Would be great to get on vinyl, but, again, I doubt there's any chance of that.

I thought this was part of the new wave of Marvel TV shows and that
they put it on Hulu because it was more adult than Disney+ fare.

Glad to hear itís pretty good. I had forgotten about it. Iíll probably start it
in the next couple of days.

Unfortunately, it's one of the last surviving relics of the now-shuttered Jeph Loeb TV division.  There were about five shows that all got announced at the same time for Hulu about two years ago (including a new Ghost Rider series with Gabriel Luna), and one-by-one they all got the axe, with the exception of this and the forthcoming MODOK.

I guess one of the reasons the fired Jeph Loeb was his poor spelling. "Helstrom"?

Yeah, with the spelling I thought that this was just a knock-off, did not realize it was actually Son of Satan. I tend to not watch shows that have no future but maybe I'll check this out.
