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.
