Lifetime has ordered Glen Mazzara's thriller Damien straight to series, the network announced on Monday.
Based on the 1976 horror classic The Omen, the follow-up series is about the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the original film, 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 most feared man throughout the ages.

"We are thrilled to be bringing a contemporary version of The Omen's Damien Thorn back to the screen.

The Walking Dead has gone through some growing pains over the last three seasons. Under former showrunner Frank Darabont, some viewers complained that the story was lagging, while under other former showrunner Glen Mazzara, the breakneck speed arguably gave some people whiplash.

The Walking Dead kicks off the second half of its third season Sunday (10/9c, AMC), which marks the beginning of the end for former showrunner Glen Mazzara.
In late December, AMC announced that its megahit series — which drew a whopping 10.5 million viewers for its midseason finale — was renewed for a fourth season, but it would go on without Mazzara, who will be replaced by Dead writer Scott Gimple.
