Watch some angels raise hell in Syfy's new Dominion teaser

Syfy has released a new promo for its upcoming series Dominion. Inspired by the 2010 film Legion, Dominion centers on a battle between angels and humans. The heavenly creatures are led by Gabriel, whose sole purpose is to destroy mankind, while the angel Michael opts to protect it. This supernatural war's been raging for years, with no sign of stopping.

Humans have adapted to the angels' presence on Earth by distancing themselves. They've created angel-proof fortresses and rebuilt their cities from the ground up. But that won't be enough to keep them safe.

Dominion features a who's-who of genre actors. The series stars Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin), Alan Dale (Lost, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Luke Allen-Gale (Ripper Street, The Borgios) and Christopher Egan (Gothica, Resident Evil: Extinction).

Watch the new promo for Dominion below:

Dominion's pilot is directed by Scott Stewart, who also helmed Legion. The series premieres June 19 at 9 p.m.
