AMC has unleashed the first trailer for its highly anticipated supernatural TV series Preacher.

Developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End, Superbad), as well as showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad), the series is an adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s popular Vertigo Comics Preacher title. The trailer was revealed during tonight’s extended 90-minute episode of The Walking Dead. AMC also released the first official synopsis for the series earlier this week, and you can read it below. But first, check out the awesome trailer:

Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God.
