A&E’s new series, Damien, premiered last night. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series showrunner Glen Mazzara discussed the upcoming season and his plans for the future of the horror drama.
Damien is based off the classic 1976 horror film, The Omen.
When asked about the future of the show, Mazzara said the season one finale will be “very surprising” for viewers:
I have to say I think that finale is one of the best episodes of TV I’ve ever worked on. I’m so excited for people to see it. When you see how everything in season one comes together in that finale in a very surprising way, it’s going to kick ass.”
He added that he does have a “game plan” if the series is renewed for more seasons by A&E:
I do have a game plan and I’m not sure A&E or Fox would want me to say because I don’t want to box them into something. But we do have one and hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to tell that story. There’s a lot of story and what’s fun about writing a psychological thriller like this is that there’s not only twists and turns with the characters but there’s obviously twists and turns with the plot. If we get to tell the full story the audience will be surprised because there’s a lot of unique territory we can go into that hasn’t been told with this type of character before.”
