The Damien panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con excited audiences on Thursday, when The Walking Dead alum (and a fan favorite) Scott Wilson (Hershel) joined Executive Producer Glen Mazzara (also ex-TWD), along with lead Bradley James (iZombie) and Barbara Hershey playing Ann Rutledge (Once Upon A Time) made an appearance. There they discussed what to expect (and what not to expect), and by the looks of the trailer, it will fit right in following Bates Motel next spring.
Check out the official trailer here below.
I love Scott Wilson and am still not over (spoiler alert!) Hershel’s death. I was going to watch Damien anyway, but this is just icing.
Mazzara said of the series:
“We’re taking the Jesus story and turning it on its head, which I’m sure will piss a lot of people off… Hopefully this is something that people fall in love with and come back season after season. We have a long story to tell.”
The trailer looks super creepy. It shows Damien coming home, interspersed with scenes from the 1976 movie, The Omen.
“The seal’s been broken. the trumpet blown.”
So many symbols, the music… it’s A&E… this is gonna be so good.
Who’s excited?!?!? This girl!
Be sure to keep it here at Geeks Of Doom all week for our on-site coverage of SDCC 2015.
