Syfy has announced that its forthcoming Legion-based TV series, Dominion, will premiere on June 12. The first poster for the show has also been released.

They were created to protect mankind, but what happens when they decide to destroy us, asks the latest preview for Syfy’s TV follow-up to the 2010 film Legion that starred Paul Bettany and Dennis Quaid.

Here’s the full synopsis for Dominion:

Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in the year 25 A.E. In this transformed post-apocalyptic future an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, has waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, has chosen to side with humanity against Gabriel. Rising out of the ashes of the 25-year-long battle are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. 

In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war between the human race and the fallen angels hellbent on their domination escalates.

Dominion stars Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale, Anthony Stewart Head and Luke Allen-Gale.

Directed by the feature’s director and co-writer Scott Stewart and written by Vaun Wilmott, Dominion will first air a 90-minute pilot on June 12, 2014.
