Damien, A&E’s sequel to The Omen, will not be back for another season. This news comes straight from creator and showrunner Glen Mazzara, who announced it via a series of tweets this afternoon:
“There are things... going on... in my house,” Geena Davis solemnly announces in the trailer for the upcoming TV show The Exorcist, which looks to be very loosely inspired by the classic horror movie that provides its title. The demon is still present and accounted for, however.
Current A&E drama Damien picks up where The Omen ended, fast-forwarding to cast the Antichrist as a 30-year-old New Yorker who’s rediscovering his demonic destiny. It’s an uneven show. But Satan’s pop-culture moment surges forth with the announcement that an Omen prequel movie is now in the works.
Despite our initial misgivings—did we really need another police procedural?—Lucifer won us over fast. In fact, after just two episodes, we were ready to declare it the best supernatural detective show we’d ever seen. Now, with the finale airing tonight, we’re just as excited about the show as ever. Here’s why.
Chalk another one up for Satan: Fox’s Lucifer has been renewed for a second season. Loosely based on Neil Gaiman characters, the show has managed to find great success during its freshman year with a blend of police procedural, supernatural drama, and slyly hilarious pop culture commentary. Hail!
If you missed The Witch on its first rollout, Robert Eggers’ horror sensation will be re-upping its theater bookings this weekend to a carefully-chosen number: 666. But really, this new push is aimed at luring repeat business. Just look at the new trailer below, which dances dangerously close to the fiery realm of…
Nearly everything that happens on Damien is utterly ridiculous. But we’ve narrowed it down to the three most WTF-did-that-just-happen moments. Par for the course when you’re dealing with the Antichrist, the type of guy who can inspire spontaneous self-castration among those in his midst.
We already knew that Amenadiel plucked Malcolm and his sleazy facial hair from the fiery pit after the fallen police officer was taken off life support. And we knew that Dan, who’s been trying to hard to work things out with Chloe, was the person who shot him. But in both cases, we didn’t know why.
After all that flailing around after those damn missing wings, this week’s Lucifer, “Et Tu, Doctor?” was way light on the Satan stuff. The homicide du jour also took a back seat, as Lucifer came to the unpleasant realization that he was capable of jealousy—and Chloe’s corruption case took an unexpected turn.
Lucifer. Damien. The Witch. A new TV show based on The Exorcist. Hell, even Once Upon a Time is getting in on the current craze for Satanic, but this is certainly not the first time demons have infiltrated entertainment. A new book aims to trace the history of how the supernatural came to be so damn popular.
The dark lords of television have arranged it so that on Mondays, you can watch Lucifer at 9pm on Fox, then switch over to A&E for Damien at 10pm. The jury’s still out on Damien—we weren’t super-stoked on the first episode—but Lucifer turned in one of its best yet with “Wingman,” as the relationship between “Lucy” and…
In A&E’s TV sequel to the classic movie The Omen, Damien is a most reluctant Antichrist. But it turns out watching a guy fretting he may be the spawn of Satan isn’t nearly as entertaining as actually watching the spawn of Satan wreaking havoc upon the world.
Glen Mazzara is best known for working on seasons two and three of The Walking Dead, but his latest project is all his own: He’s the creator, executive producer, and showrunner of Damien, a new drama that imagines the Antichrist character from The Omen as a young adult grappling with his true identity.
The dedicated fun adversaries at One Million Moms are back with a new campaign, this one aimed at making Satan less hot. They’re outraged that the new Fox show Lucifer makes the Dark Lord look like a “likable guy” who’s “cool and irresistible to women.” Kind of like how these campaigns make the TV shows they’re…
Satan is sizzling hot right now. So it’s perfect timing for A&E to release another trailer promoting Damien, its upcoming Omen-inspired tale about what happens when the Antichrist realizes he can’t keep running from his sinister past, his evil destiny, and all the hangers-on who want a piece of his action.
Lucifer had its debut last night and we already told you how much we enjoyed it—specifically Tom Ellis’ performance as the titular Lord of Hell. But Lucifer isn’t operating on Earth in a vacuum. He’s got a fierce protector, and an equally fierce adversary. So, who are these two exactly?
Grimm, Angel, Constantine and countless other shows have explored detective stories with supernatural and occult themes—but Lucifer, which debuts Monday night on Fox, proves there’s room for one more. In fact, Lucifer may be the best this genre has ever seen, thanks in large part to its title character.
Mark your calendars, folks: between A&E’s Omen follow up Damien and Fox’s ridiculously charming Lucifer, there’s never been a better year for Satan on television. If this new trailer is anything to go by, Damien is definitely going to be the darker and creepier of the two.
We recently got a new trailer for the upcoming Fox show Lucifer; not to be outdone, A&E would like to remind you of its own entry into the “2016: The Year of Our Dark Lord” television sweepstakes, busting out a teaser for Damien, which builds off the story of classic 1976 horror film The Omen.
