Warning: Spoilers Ahead

You had me, quite frankly, at Bradley James. I loved him in Merlin and iZombie, so I knew I’d be sampling his next project. The fact that he’s going to be the grown up version of little Damien Thorn from The Omen is exciting. If this gets paired with Bates Motel on A&E, these two shows will make for a killer night of TV.

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. Megalyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.
