Preacher AMC

Preacher Gets Premiere Date at AMC

Your prayers have been answered: AMC’s Preacher adaptation has a premiere date.

The supernatural drama will bow Sunday, May 22 at 10/9c, leading out of Fear the Walking Dead‘s midseason finale. After encoring the pilot twice on Sunday, May 29 (during Memorial Day weekend), new episodes will resume Sunday, June 5 at 9 pm (its regular time slot).

Based on the cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows Jesse Custer (played by Agent Carter‘s Dominic Cooper), a West Texas preacher who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Along with his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Misfits‘ Joseph Gilgun), Custer is thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

    Weird scheduling decision

  2. Simon says:

    Is there going to be a Talking Dead for each instalment of FTWD? And if so when does Talking Dead air for the midseason finale (May 22) since Preacher is premiering right after. It would be silly to air Talking Dead an hour after the FTWD episode.

    Saw the trailer when TWD went on their winter break. This Preacher HAS some major issues def. going to check this out!

    The comics series was awesome. No idea how they can translate it well to TV, it’s going to be severely watered down….
