Damien TV show on A&EA&E has ordered some additional episodes of their new series Damien, a follow up to The Omen feature film. The cable channel initially gave the show a six-episode straight to series order but has now increased that number to 10 episodes. No release date has been announced yet.

Here’s the press release:

A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE ORIGINAL SCRIPTED DRAMA SERIES “DAMIEN” BASED ON TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX’S CLASSIC HORROR FILM, THE OMEN

FOUR ADDITIONAL EPISODES ADDED TO ORIGINAL SERIES ORDER FROM FOX 21 AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER GLEN MAZZARA (“THE WALKING DEAD,” “THE SHIELD”)

New York, NY – April 29, 2015 – A&E Network will premiere the new original scripted drama series, “Damien.” The hour-long drama from Fox 21 Television Studios and executive producer Glen Mazzara is a follow-up to the classic horror film, The Omen. Currently in production in Toronto, “Damien” will premiere a 10-episode season on A&E, increased from the initial six-episode straight to series order. The announcement was made today by Rob Sharenow, Executive Vice President & General Manager, A&E and Lifetime.

“A&E’s unwavering commitment to high quality original scripted drama programming, coupled with the sizable fan-base for our hit series ‘Bates Motel,’ which so perfectly aligns with ‘Damien,’ make the network the ideal fit for this exceptional show,” said Sharenow. “We are thrilled with what we’ve seen so far and know that Glen and the creative team have even more story to tell in season one.”

The series stars Bradley James as Damien Thorn (“Merlin,” “Homeland”), along with Oscar(R) nominee Barbara Hershey (“Once Upon a Time”), Omid Abtahi (“Better Call Saul”) and Meganlyn Echikunwoke (“House of Lies”).

“Damien” follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist. Barbara Hershey stars as Ann Rutledge, the world’s most powerful woman who has been tasked with making sure Damien fulfills his destiny. Omid Abtahi portrays Amani Golkar, a close colleague of Damien’s whose fierce loyalty will be tested when he realizes who his brother-in-arms actually is. Meganlyn Echikunwoke plays Simone Baptiste, a woman whose life is thrown into turmoil when tragedy unexpectedly strikes.

“Damien” is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios (“Homeland,” “Sons of Anarchy”) for A&E Network. Glen Mazzara (“The Walking Dead,” “The Shield”) serves as writer and executive producer via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman (“Lights Out”), who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his company, Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield (“Queen of the South”) also serves as executive producer. Golden Globe(R) and BAFTA Award nominated director Shekhar Kapur (Elizabeth) directed and executive produces the first episode.
