AMC Network released the first full trailer to Preacher Sunday night during the 90-minute episode of The Walking Dead.
AMC’s Preacher is an adaptation of the comic book series of the same name created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint.
Preacher is one of the most celebrated graphic novels of all time, the story of a man of God in a small Texas town who sets out to avenge the decimation of his hometown by supernatural forces.
The plot of the show revolves around Jesse Custer, a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who merges with a powerful creature that has escaped from heaven. Along with his ex-gal, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy, the three embark on a journey to find God.
AMC’s Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Jesse’s Irish vampire best friend Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Jesse’s girlfriend Tulip O’Hare, Ian Colletti as Arseface, and W. Earl Brown as Arseface’s father Sheriff Hugo Root. There is no firm date for when Preacher will hit the airwaves, but mid-2016 looks to be the target.
