If you own a television, chances are you’ve seen either Rose McIver or Wyatt Nash pop up on it at some point in the last few years.

A little boy named Damien is once again about to haunt your dreams, but this time on the small screen.

The young boy from the classic 1976 horror film (and 2006 remake) The Omen is now an adult facing his true destiny as the Antichrist in Damien, a new TV series in development for Lifetime from former The Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara.

The original spawned two sequels and later two movie adaptations in the ’90s. A 2006 remake starring Julia Stiles and Liev Schreiber grossed over $100 million worldwide.
