Description: Damien, from Fox 21 Television Studios and executive producer Glen Mazzara, is a follow-up to the classic horror film, The Omen. The show 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. aetv.com
Comments: Instead of a reboot or re-imagining, this is a direct continuation of the 1976 film (ignoring the theatrical sequels) following the adult Damien coming to terms with his legacy. Considering the current political climate, this one could certainly hit a nerve and should be worth checking out.
