Exclusive First Look: In Syfy's Dominion, a Legion of Angels From Heaven Raise Hell on Earth

Oh, we’ve come a long way from the likes of Jonathan Smith and Clarence.

In the new Syfy series Dominion — premiering Thursday, June 19 at 9/8c and based on characters from the 2010 feature Legion — it’s the year 25 A.E. (After the War of Extinction) when an army assembled by the archangel Gabriel (played by Carl Beukes) wages a war of possession against mankind’s survivors. In that fight, the archangel Michael (300‘s Tom Wisdom) sides with humanity, against Gabriel.

    I will watch this even if it’s worst show on TV just to gaze at Roxanne McKee! So happy she’s back on TV!

  2. K says:

    Yes! Big fan of Roxanne :) loved her in the British soap Hollyoaks. Happy to see she’s got a US show!

  3. Lon Burke says:

    Dominion is a confusing title and sounds a lot like Defiance. Why not call it “Angel Wars”?

  4. M3rc Nate says:

    I liked the movie, i like the concept…iv been waiting to see if Vampire Diaries or True Blood or Being Human would bring an Angel to the party….they have vampires, werewolves, shape shifters, ghosts, “gods”, first peoples (like fairies etc) and more….so there being a “God” and him having “Angels” isnt a far fetch. So the concept of this show is pretty cool, however the Syfy CGI looks lack luster…and from this trailer it doesnt look like theres enough there for me to care about to watch. Unlike say a Defiance.

    from the promotional pictures, i can say that the war of extinction has eliminated all people of color at least in what is left of the USA… hollywood casting, the more it changes, the more it remains the same… anyway…

    • tp says:

      You can bet that when a POC does show up they’ll be some type of alien or have a non human look.

    • James says:

      Well, in the photos it looks like we have a few Asians, a couple of Americans and Australians and those with some Gaelic-sounding surnames. Does that count?

    • alex jones says:

      I’m getting fed up of this talk. why does there need to be black people in every show, I’m not being racist but it’s not like we have to have someone with green eyes in every show or someone with red hair, they should just pick whoever is best for the role regardless of what colour their skin is.

      • Daren says:

        No one is saying that there needs to be black people in every show, but ANY racial diversity gives shows like this credibility. Are we really meant to believe that NO people of color survived the angel attacks? Were those with any amount of melanin in their skin their primary targets? Let’s be real here.

        • Jay says:

          C’mon now who cares if there black people in it or not and I bet there are black people on the show you don’t see white people complaining that Tyler perry barely ever puts a white person in his movies even if there in a rich neighborhood for some reason there’s no white people around why doesn’t anyone call him a racist

        • morris says:

          typical “white world drama” i stopped watching tv ages ago and read book with a bit more broader appeal. maybe in fifty years “they” will catch up…some how i doubt it.

      • morris says:

        keep that apartheid strong …..

      • doug says:

        I care. Especially as the show is shot in Cape Town.

  6. meatwad says:

    looks good from this article, will definitely be watching

  7. Jeff says:

    Aren’t angels immortal, so why bother trying to kill/injure one? Why 500 years in the future are they still using conventional firearms? Since there are angels, wouldn’t God be around and wouldn’t he have some say in what’s going on, and wouldn’t that be the final word, so to speak?
    Seems like a weak concept.

  8. Eric Walls says:

    What? No! Angels are the good guys – as in the definition of the word “good,” as in literally good, as in inherently good. This is all backwards and upside down.

  9. Rich says:

    Supernatural is a great series and does have angels,demons,and other monsters. Dominion sounds pretty good and I will be watching it! I just hope it is as god as Grimm,supernatural,arrow and revolution!

  10. leqp says:

    I agree with carrinebchaud, I am offended by the lack of African American and other minority characters. It seems to me that the only ones who don’t care if there are blacks in the show or not are Europeans who are always represented in practically every tv show.

  11. Blainedamono says:

    Yea, I am a little late to the game. But I thought it was odd that a TV show that takes place in a post apocolyptic dystopian future has very few minorities in it. At least with game of thrones the where and when are fctional places. I am literally sitting here watching this show saying to myself, the only black people of note is the brawler in a cage, some Half naked Rick Ross looking dude on top of the Angels cage and a servant of the foreign dignitary…oh yea one of the naked ladies on the bed. Shameful!

  12. liquidcobra says:

    People getting fed up with people talking about no black people being in the show when they don’t have a problem with all whites being in them. Typical…

  13. Rene Shupe says:

    is Lucifer going to play a role in this War of bringing Hell to Earth,………would make for an interesting twist

    • Whitewitch says:

      What would be more of a twist is if Lucifer worked with Michael and the humans to over throw Gabriel. But it seems like if every movie like Constantine for example Gabriel was bad and Lucifer took care of that problem!

      • Rene Shupe says:

        Okay, to even ignore the fact that Lucifer does not play a part whether helping Michael or Himself is almost leaving a very powerful story line, unaddressed. In “Legion” the conflict is described as an “extermination.” God being present and Michael “giving him what he needs” and Gabriel “Giving him what he wants.” Lucifer”, on the other hand brings about a problem that neither factions can ignore…….nor can either Michael or Gabriel seek his help……….Remember he in Theology is the “Adversary.” Man’s ultimate ANTAGONIST.

        • Rene Shupe says:

          Constantine, Supernatural or other similar story lines concerning “Dominion” is “to me” not repetitive or redundant but a reflection (as evidenced by the interesting discussion) of how many different directions and story lines it can take…….Again, locked on to the Movie, “Legion” and the “Extermination”…..Michael and Gabriel have stayed pretty close to the story line of original movie……..”Whitewitch” is completely correct about the Gabriel and Lucifer interactions. I am curious to see how and if the writers of “Dominion” even address “Theologies” Greatest EVIL and the Special relationship that seems to be inherent in all Angel interactions…………Family, Love yet Antagonist……take a page from the Movie “The Prophecy” and allow the “Adversary” to put in his “two cents”

    i been waiting to see this but it have a little slow but tonight the show was some what better but they need new writer. I like the ideal of
