Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s legendary comic about a supernatural Preacher, a gun-toting ex, and an “Irish” vampire.
PREACHER follows Reverend Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a tough Texas preacher who has lost his faith, has learned that God has left Heaven and abandoned His responsibilities. He finds himself the only person capable of tracking God down, demanding answers, and making Him answer for His dereliction of duty. Accompanying Jesse on his journey is his former girlfriend, Tulip (played by Ethiopian-Irish actress Ruth Negga), and a rowdy Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) who seems to prefer a pint in the pub to the blood of the innocent. On his tail is an immortal, unstoppable killing machine named the Saint of Killers – a western lone gunman archetype whose sole purpose is to hunt and kill Jesse.
The first season of PREACHER hits America’s AMC with 10 episodes mid 2016.
