“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.
The show stars Dominic Cooper, who plays the lead role of Reverend Jesse Custer; Joseph Gilgun, who stars as the Irish vampire named Cassidy; Ruth Negga, who stars as Custer’s ex-girlfriend and current companion Tulip O’Hare; and Ian Colletti, who has the distinct honor of playing the character named Arseface. Other stars include Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef, Tom Brooke, Derek Wilson, Ian Colletti, and Jackie Earle Haley.
The Preacher pilot episode airs this upcoming Sunday night at 10PM EST on AMC.
The beginning of the original AMC series is nigh. Premieres Sunday May 22, 10/9c.
