Fans of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series Preacher have been waiting a long time to see it brought to life, with the memory of plenty of failed attempts at adapting it still fresh in mind.
But come Sunday that all changes, as the TV series adaptation of the same name from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin finally premieres on AMC after the latest episode of Fear the Walking Dead. But if you’re the impatient type, and you simply cannot go another day without seeing something, anything, substantial from the series, you are in luck this day. AMC has released the first four minutes of the pilot episode, so you can get a small taste for the show beyond the quick shots a trailer offers you.

For those of you anxiously awaiting word on when you might see the Preacher TV series, get those calendars and a marker ready. The status of the show last we knew was that AMC had ordered a pilot episode, and the cast was put together to film that first episode in hopes of it winning a full series order from AMC. Now it appears that order has been made.
Seth Rogen, who is writing and executive producing the show with his This Is the End and The Interview co-writer and co-director Evan Goldberg, tweeted out that Preacher is coming to AMC in May of next year. He also shared the first poster for the series, which you can check out below. Unfortunately he deleted the tweet quickly and then sent out a new one simply saying “Preacher is coming to AMC!” so it’s unknown whether the May of 2016 part was incorrect or he wasn’t supposed to say anything yet. But either way, it looks like the show is real and you will get to see it.
After weeks of speculation and rumors, AMC’s Preacher — based on the critically acclaimed Vertigo comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon — has finally found its leading man.
Actor Dominic Cooper has been confirmed for the role of Jesse Custer. Cooper is no stranger to bringing comic book characters to life, having played the role of Howard Stark, the father of Tony Stark (Iron Man) in Captain America: First Avenger and its spin-off television series, Agent Carter.
Another actor has been locked in for the upcoming AMC TV series adaptation of the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series Preacher, which is written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, with Sam Catlin acting as showrunner.
It’s being reported that Joseph Gilgun has been cast in the role of Cassidy, an Irish vampire who’s joining the main character Jesse Custer and his ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare as they seek to find God…actually find God, not just spiritually.
