The Devil has many names.

Glen Mazzara, the writer behind the The Walking Dead and The Shield has written a horror series intended as a direct sequel to '76 cult classic The Omen and, if the teaser trailer is anything to go by, it looks like it's going to be pretty damn good.

According to Dread Central,

'Damien' follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 horror film The Omen, 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. The saga begins when Damien, an acclaimed war photographer, returns home to New York after experiencing a traumatic event while on assignment in Syria. Strange occurrences and flashbacks plague him, and he is then forced to confront his true identity.

The series will star Bradley James (Homeland), Oscar nominated Barbara Hershey (Once Upon a Time), Omid Abtahi (Better Call Saul), Megalyn E.K. (House of Lies), Scott Wilson (The Walking Dead), David Meunier (Justified) and Robin Weigert (Sons of Anarchy). In other words, the cast is great.

'Damien' is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios for A&E Network. Glen Mazzara ('The Walking Dead,' 'The Shield') serves as writer and executive producer via his 44 Strong Productions. Ross Fineman, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, executive produces through his company, Fineman Entertainment. Pancho Mansfield also serves as executive producer. Golden Globe® and BAFTA Award-nominated director Shekhar Kapur directed and executive produced the first episode.'

Damien will air on A&E March 7th.
