Damien canceled at A&E after season 1

Damien is over after one season. The series, a follow-up to the 1976 horror film The Omen, has been canceled at A&E, according to executive producer Glen Mazzara and the network.

“This hurts to say but #Damien will not be getting a second season. Thank you from all of us to our amazing fans,” Mazzara tweeted Friday. “The #Damien fandom has been the absolute best. So sorry we won’t be able to continue our story for you.”

Damien received a straight-to-series six-episode order from Lifetime before moving to A&E and bumping its show count up to 10. The show followed a 30-year-old Damien (Bradley James), now a photographer and completely unaware of his demonic-imbued past — until it catches up to him.

Mazzara cut his teeth producing on The Shield and served as showrunner of The Walking Dead for seasons 2 and 3.
