A new TV show “Damien” based from the classic horror film “The Omen” is moving to a new network.
“Damien” was set to air on Lifetime but just recently, it has been moved to A&E and with this move changed it from a 6-episode run to a 10-episode run.
The show is a follow up to the original “The Omen,” which continues as Damien Thorn as an adult who is unaware of the satanic forces around him. Bradley James (“Merlin”) will play the role of Damien along with Barbara Hershey (“Once Upon a Time”) as Ann Rutledge, a very powerful woman who has been assigned to fulfill Damien’s destiny, Omid Abtahi (“Better Call Saul”) as Amani Golkar, Damien’s close friend and Meganlyn Echikunwoke (“House of Lies”) as Simone Baptiste whose life started to change when tragedy unexpectedly came to her life.
This is not the classic horror remake that A&E has because currently, “Bates Motel” is running, which is successful so far. The network hopes that “Damien” will follow its path of success.
“Damien” is an exciting new take on the young child whom has been a part of our lives. Who hasn’t watched “The Omen” anyway? It’s a classic movie and this TV series has a huge potential to become a success, not to mention that Bradley is one fine lad and seems to be the perfect fit for the role.
The premiere date for “Damien” has yet to be announced.
