Lifetime has greenlit “Damien”, the “Omen”-sequel series that will fix on the devilish tyke as an adult.

In the show, Damien Thorn, now all grown up, is “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.”

The 6-episode first season will debut early 2015. Glen Mazzara, of “The Walking Dead”, is the showrunner.

Meantime, a series based on the Martin Scorsese film “Shutter Island” is in the works, says Deadline.

Martin Scorsese will executive produce the series which is set up at HBO and Paramount Television under the working title “Ashecliffe”.

Scorsese plans to direct the pilot.
