A&E’s The Omen sequel TV series Damien, starring Merlin‘s Bradley James, has been cancelled after just one season.
Showrunner Glen Mazzara took to Twitter to break the news about the show’s cancellation, and thanked the network, the cast and crew, and the fans.
This hurts to say but #Damien will not be getting a second season. Thank you from all of us to our amazing fans.

The show was set in present day New York, with Damien Thorn as a 30 year old war photographer based in New York City and becoming aware of who he is exactly: the Antichrist.
Damien also starred Barbara Hershey, Omid Abtahi, Megalyn Echikunwoke, David Meunier and Scott Wilson, and featured some impressive directing talent too: Jennifer Lynch, Shekhar Kapur, Ernest R Dickerson, Guillermo Navarro and Mikael Solomon among others.
However, the reviews for the show weren’t great and the viewing figures were in a steady decline, leading to the network deciding to pull the plug.
Still, there’s a David Goyer-produced prequel film on the way, so die-hard fans of the son of Satan have got that at least.
