If you’re a fan of horror, then you should be familiar with The Omen. The horror franchise was a reputable hit in the late 70s, and it spawned several films in the past few decades including a remake in 2006, which wasn’t so well received amongst fans.
But now, the story of Damien Thorn, the protagonist in The Omen, is set to continue with an all-new series that’s being reportedly being produced by LIFETIME.
It’s being reported that the channel has placed an order for Damien, a six-episode series, which will follow Thorn as an adult. Little has been revealed about the series except that producer Glen Mazzara (The Walking Dead, The Shield) is looking to offer a contemporary take on the character, and reimagining him as a dark anti-hero.
We’re not sure if the new take will go down well with fans, since The Omen character was originally written as the Antichrist in the original film. Damien is scheduled to be launched in 2015.
