AMC announced today from the South by Southwest (SXSW) Festival that Preacher will make its series debut on Sunday, May 22 at 10/9c, immediately following the mid-season finale of Fear the Walking Dead.
Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult comic book franchise of the same name. Executive-produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin, the series tells the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) come together and are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
