HELSTROM Canceled At Hulu After Just One Season, Ending The Marvel Television Era Once And For All

In news that will surprise no one, Helstrom has been cancelled at Hulu after just one season, bringing the era of Marvel Television to an end as the focus is shifted to Disney+. Read on for details...

Marvel Studios and Marvel Television may both be part of the same company, but their projects couldn't be more separate. The latter has only ever had access to the characters Kevin Feige doesn't need or want, though the end of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. saw that show's executive producers reveal they'd been stopped from using M.O.D.O.K.; Clearly, Marvel Studios has always been in charge.

Now, they've been tasked with creating a slate of shows set firmly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and that means the Marvel Television era of storytelling is now at an end. 

Adding to that is the news that Helstrom has been cancelled at Hulu after just one season.

This was to be expected, as the show was never really marketed as a new Marvel TV series (likely meaning viewership was low). Showrunner Paul Zbyszewski (who previously worked on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) had his overall deal with Marvel terminated in April, so the show was done for even back then.

The M.O.D.O.K. and Hit-Monkey animated TV shows coming to Hulu are all that's really left from Jeph Loeb's time in charge of Marvel Television, though it's unlikely they'll last any longer than Helstrom.

Instead, the focus is being shifted to big budget Marvel Studios projects on Disney+ like WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier
