While we eagerly await the premiere of Seth Rogen’s Preacher series, a new promo, as well as a couple of images, has been unleashed by AMC.
One of the most hotly anticipated new TV shows of the year, Preacher boasts a great cast that includes Dominic Cooper (Agent Carter) as titular character Jesse Custer, Ruth Nega (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as his former lady love Tulip O’Hare, and Joseph Gilgun (Misfits) as Irish vampire Cassidy, Ian Colletti as Arseface, Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow, Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quinncannon, Jackie Earle Hayley as Odin Quincannon, W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Hugo Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore and Jamie Anne Allman and Derek Wilson in the roles of Betsy and Donny Schenck.
The TV brainchild of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the series is an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s ultra-violent cult classic Preacher Vertigo comics. The new promo focuses on Jesse’s dark past and features some pretty cool scenes with Tulip (Ha! Getting kids to build her a bazooka) and Cassidy. Also, don’t forget to dig into the gallery below!
“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.
Preacher will premiere May 22 on AMC. Are you looking forward to the new supernatural TV series?
