From the same producers of The Walking Dead, the series features the character Damien Thorn, who at 30 years of age must face his destiny to become Antichrist.
The suspense and action series Damien arrives at A&E in May. Production accompanies the adult life of Damien Thorn (Bradley James), the mysterious child of the 1976 film The prophecy, and who grew up unaware of the satanic forces surrounding him. Tormented by his past, Damien must now face his true destiny: accept that he is the Antichrist, the man most feared by the human race of all time.
The saga begins when Damien, a renowned war correspondent photographer, returns home to New York, after going through a dramatic event during a mission in Syria. Strange events and memories torment him and he is forced to face his true identity.
In the cast we also have Barbara Hershey (Once Upon a Time, Black Swan), who plays Ann Rutledge, the most powerful woman in the world, not only because she runs a global conglomerate, but because she was assigned the task of ensuring that Damien Thorn fulfills his destiny as the Antichrist.
Also in the cast, Omid Abtahi (Better Call Saul), who plays Amani Golkar, a translator and close friend of Damien, whose true loyalty will be put to the test when he realizes who his mate is.
Megalyn Echikunwoke (House of Lies, Spydergames) acts as Simone Baptiste, a woman who grew up in the shadow of her consecrated sister and whose life turns into real chaos, when tragedy strikes her unexpectedly; and David Meunier (Justified), as Detective James Shay, a veteran and cynical policeman, who is investigating the strange events surrounding Damien.
Damien opens on May 27, Friday, at A&E.
