A&E has just unveiled a lightning quick promo for their new drama series Damien.

Based on horror film The Omen, this shows little Damien all grown up, and now he must embrace his past and fulfill his destiny of being the Antichrist.

An A&E original, the hour long drama stars Bradley James (Homeland, Merlin) as the Antichrist himself with Oscar nominated Barbara Hershey and Omid Abtahi, star of Better Call Saul.

If you're unfamiliar with little Damien, take a look at this clip:

Unaware of his childhood, Damien must now embrace what he really is with the help of Ann Rutledge (Barbara) a woman who his the power to help him reach his full potential. Will loyal colleague Amani (Omid) stay by his friend's side when he finds out who he is?! It also features Simone Baptiste, played by Meganlyn Echikunwoke, who's life is hanging in the balance after she is plagued by tragedy.

With a production cast with more credentials than you can shake a stick at, including The Walking Dead writer and executive producer Glem Mazzara, it looks like finding out what happened to Damien is going to make for some amazing viewing.
