Executive produced by former Walking Dead and Shield producer Glen Mazzara, the new Omen inspired series will pick-up 25 years after the events of the original film that see a 30-year-old Damien begin coming to terms with his true destiny as the one and only antichrist.
And as for the show’s “content,” Mazzara claimed:
I think ‘Damien’ is cutting-edge material. It’s trying to push the boundaries as far as violence and horror go. There’s a lot of really great drama on TV and that was not the case in 1976 when the film came out. So the bar is set so high given other great horror shows that are on TV. We have our work cut out for us; everybody is really interested in pushing the boundaries. I think we’ve got a few episodes that people are going to be talking about.
