Lifetime's The Omen TV Series 'Damien' Casts Bradley James, Premiere Episode Director Announced

Lifetimes The Omen TV Series Damien Casts Bradley James, Premiere Episode Director Announced

Bradley James, Arthur Pendragon from BBC‘s Merlin TV series will play Damien in Lifetime‘s Damien Season 1 based on the Omen movies. The new Omen TV series premiere will be directed by Shekhar Kapur, of which he is also to executive produce this episode. The classic horror film was great, Damien Thorn created a lot of trouble for his parents. This new TV series will follow the spawn of Satan, Damien, as he continues his adult life and grows into his destiny as the Antichrist. There is a lot of speculation to this demon series and with a six-episode season 1, is it enough? I am definitely going to give the series a chance and with six episodes, I can dive in and watch without thinking too hard if there will be a Damien Season 2.

Produced by Fox Television Studios and based on Twentieth Century Fox’s classic horror film, The Omen, the series 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, the most feared man throughout the ages.
