Marvel Entertainment has announced the arrival of a new TV series based on Ghost Rider.
Marvel’s Ghost Rider will star Gabriel Luna in the title role – a part he previously played on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series will air in the US in 2020 via Hulu.
According to Marvel, Luna plays “the quintessential antihero, who lives on the Texas/Mexico border, consumed by hellfire and supernaturally bound to a demon. When he unleashes the Rider, Robbie brings vengeance for the innocents he encounters, but struggles controlling the power he wields.”
In a press release, Ghost Rider Executive Producer and Showrunner, Ingrid Escajeda, said: “I couldn’t be more excited and honoured to be handed the reins to a Marvel character as beloved as Ghost Rider.
“This story hits every note for me—my love for grounded yet conflicted characters and my desire to scare the $&!# out of people! It’s important to me to find a take that thrills existing fans as well as wider audiences and I believe we’ve done just that.”
In addition to Ghost Rider, Marvel has also announced another live-action TV series – Marvel’s Helstrom.
According to Marvel, “Daimon and Ana Helstrom are the son and daughter of a mysterious and powerful serial killer in Marvel’s Helstrom. The siblings have a complicated dynamic as they track down the worst of humanity—each with their attitude and skills.”
Paul Zbyszewski is the showrunner on Marvel’s Helstrom. The series will also air on Hulu in 2020.
