It’s all for no one, apparently, and least of all for Damien. Following a low-rated first season (itself initially dropped from Lifetime), A&E’s The Omen sequel series has officially closed the book on Season 2, thwarting the Anti-Christ once more.
It’s been some time since we’ve checked in for a stay at A&E’s Bates Motel, and it seems another famous horror property will be setting up shop nextdoor this March. The network has officially set a March premiere for the fourth year of Norman Bates’ descent into madness, as well as The Omen sequel series Damien.
If the past year in TV has proven anything, sequel series and movie tie-ins are no longer a guarantee of success, so where might A&E (formerly Lifetime)’s The Omen sequel Damien land? A slick new teaser for the demonic thriller recreates one of the horror film’s most enduring images, which at least ups the creep factor.
Between Sons of Anarchy, Justified and plenty other landmark dramas of recent years, there’s been no shortage of visibility for The Shield’s prolific cast and creators, save the actual series itself. Now, the Strike Team returns prettier than ever, as creator Shawn Ryan confirms a 4K conversion that will enable a Shield Blu-ray and upgraded streaming.
First announced last year, Damien is the forthcoming television series which serves as a sequel of sorts to classic 1976 horror film The Omen. The series was originally set up over at Lifetime, which has recently dipped its toe in the genre with Lizzie Borden Took an Ax follow-up The Lizzie Borden Chronicles. Damien is now being ported over to sister network A&E, where it’s been given an order for four more episodes.
Just when you thought 'The Walking Dead''s latest season renewal had gone by without the showrunner shakeups so often associated with the series, it seems the AMC monster drama has a new problem on its hands. 'The Walking Dead''s original showrunner and co-creator Frank Darabont has hit AMC with a lawsuit alleging that the network defaulted on upwards of $10 million in royalties. Merry Christmas to all!
Yes, that prequel to 'The Shining' is still happening, but we're a little more hopeful now that 'Walking Dead' veteran Glen Mazzara has been hired to pen the script.
It was a great shock to fans of AMC's 'The Walking Dead' when show-runner Glen Mazzara opted to depart the acclaimed horror-drama in advance of the fourth season, despite being largely accredited with the increase in quality over the third. Mazzara still has a part to play in the next few episodes, including co-writing this Sunday's nail-biter "Prey," but will now develop a variety of cable series for FOX Television studios under his newly-formed production company "44 Strong." Find out about Glen Mazzara's next work inside!
Months ago we were shocked to learn that 'The Walking Dead' show-runner and somewhat savior Glen Mazzara would depart the AMC drama in advance of the fourth season, following in a pattern for the series that saw Frank Darabont ousted prior to the season 2 premiere. Writer/producer Scott M. Gimple had been rumored to take the reigns of 'The Walking Dead' season 4, and now AMC has made the news official, bringing on two new executive producers as well. Find out the latest on 'The Walking Dead' inside!
Overjoyed as we are to have 'The Walking Dead' return this Sunday with mid-season premiere "The Suicide King," the AMC drama's return also turns our stomach in knots with thoughts of which beloved characters might bite the big one in the coming weeks. And despite producers' claims that no character is safe, fans have their own ideas of who 'The Walking Dead' would never kill off. However, could new comments from ousted showrunner Glen Mazzara reveal the creative differences that led to his exit? Who might Glen Mazzara have wanted to kill off from 'The Walking Dead' that AMC refused?
