A&E premiered the trailer for the upcoming horror series Damien during the show’s panel at the 2015 San Diego Comic Con. The new series picks up 25 years after the events of The Omen and stars Bradley James as a grown up Damien Thorn. Executive produced Glen Mazzara, the cast also includes Barbara Hershey, Meganlyn Echikunwoke, Omid Abtahi, and the just-announced Scott Wilson.
Damien follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.
