Damien, A&Eā€™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:

He went on to thank the fans a few more times, as well as the showā€™s cast and crew, writers, and the network. Then, he offered a reason for the cancellation, too:

Though we were hopeful when the show was first announced, from its earliest episodes Damien had some fundamental problemsā€”one being that it took itself way too seriously, especially in contrast to the similarly-themed but way-more-fun Lucifer. Let this be a precautionary tale for the also somber-looking Exorcist TV show, which is bringing its own brand of evil to the airwaves next season.
