A&E Cancels ‘Damien’ After One Season

Just 10 Episodes Were produced

A&E has opted against a second season of scripted drama “Damien,” which was canceled for the usual reason: low ratings. Debuting on March 7, “Damien” was based on the 1976 film “The Omen,” and it followed the adult life of Damien Thorn (Bradley James), now a 30-year-old war photographer who had forgotten his Satanic past, facing his true identity.

Barbara Hershey co-starred and the final episode of the 10-episode series was on May 9.
