Preacher, AMC’s adaptation on the twisted ’90s comic book series, premiered on Sunday following the mid-season finale of Fear The Walking Dead and drew in a reported 2.4 million viewers. This means Preacher is the second best scripted series debut of 2016.
Preacher is being produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and is based on of the DC/Vertigo comic book by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The series follows the story of Jesse Custer, a preacher in the small Texas town of Annville who is possessed by the half demon, half angel ‘Genesis’. Custer journeys across the United States attempting to literally find God all while developing the highly unconventional power the mysterious entity has given him. On this quest he is joined by his old girlfriend Tulip O’Hare, as well as a hard-drinking Irish vampire named Cassidy.
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef and Tom Brooke.
