Damien, the new drama is a sequel of sorts to the 1976 film, picking up where the old film left off. The show begins with Damien, a 30-year-old war photographer, who has forgotten his Satanic past. He returns home to New York after a traumatic event in Syria with flashbacks of his childhood.  The memories plague him as he is forced to face his own identity as the Anti-Christ. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny and is in charge of getting  rid of anyone who gets in the way of making it happen. The show also casts Megalyn Echikunwoke as Simone Baptiste, Omid Abtahi as Amani  Golkar, Scott Wilson as John Lyons and Tiffany Hines as Kelly Baptiste. Glen Mazzara is the Creator, Executive Producer, and show-runner of Damien, who was the Executive Producer of the Television shows such as The shield (2002-2006) and The Walking Dead (2011-2013).
