Preacher begins his ministry May 22nd

PreacherAMC’s adaptation of Preacher will begin on Sunday May 22nd, immediately after the mid-season finale of Fear the Walking Dead.

The pilot will air again on May 29th, before regular episodes begin on Sunday June 5th at 9 pm.

AMC’s official description of the show: “Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.”

“We’re thrilled to finally be sharing this epic story with characters unlike any other on television,” Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV noted. “Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have brought Garth’s writing and Steve’s artistry to life in the most gratifying way possible. Fans of the comic book and fans of just great television have a lot to look forward to as they’ll travel on an unforgettable journey and watch in unison as the craziness unfolds.”

“Seth, Evan and I couldn’t be more excited to be the beneficiaries of AMC’s historic bit of programming miscalculation,” showrunner, executive producer and writer, Sam Catlin added. “Lord have mercy on all our souls!”

The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
