Helstrom, a television adaption of the Marvel comics of the same name, is Hulu’s latest supernatural (and LGBTQ+ inclusive) series.

Released just in time for Halloween, the show follows Daimon (Tom Austen) and Ana Helstrom (Sydney Lemmon), the son and daughter of a mysterious serial killer, as they “track down the worst of humanity — each with their own attitude and skills.”

PRIDE had a quick chat with Alain Uy, who plays Chris Yun on the series, Ana’s business partner and surrogate brother. In our exclusive interview, Uy opened up about his character’s sexuality, supernatural romances, and how Helstrom is different from other series from the Marvel universe.

Off the bat, it’s clear that Helstrom isn’t your average Marvel series. With all of the “gore and fear” Uy describes, the show fits right in with the horror genre. 

“It’s part of the universe that hasn’t been touched,” says Uy. For “fans that are looking for something a little bit more mature, that’s a lot more grounded, that are looking for themes that wouldn’t necessarily be in Iron Man or any those types of movies,” Helstrom is the show for you.

Uy also talks about Chris’s complicated relationship with his boyfriend, Derrick Jackson (Hamza Fouad). Ana and Chris “use his profession to boost their side projects,” which we’re sure is perfectly fine by him and won’t blow up in their faces at all. Look forward to some messy gay drama this season!

Helstrom is available to stream on Hulu now. Watch the trailer below:
