The Spirit of Vengeance is returning to the small screen, and another hellish Marvel Comics creation is along for the ride.
Hulu has announced that new Ghost Rider and Helstrom series are in the works as part of its expanding partnership with Marvel Television, with both shows on track for 2020 premieres.
A version of Ghost Rider was introduced on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but while this show will also focus on the Robbie Reyes incarnation of the character, it doesn't sound like Gabriel Luna will be reprising the role. The show will be executive-produced by Ingrid Escajeda (Justified), who will also serve as showrunner, Paul Zbyszewski (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb.
Helstrom, meanwhile, will focus on Daimon and Ana Helstrom, the son and daughter of “a mysterious and powerful serial killer," who track down “the terrorizing worst of humanity.” In the comics, Daimon Hellstrom, a.k.a. Hellstorm, is the literal son of Satan, so this appears to be quite a lose adaptation. Helstrom also has Paul Zbyszewski and Jeph Loeb on board.

UPDATE: Maybe Luna is returning after all!
