These shots give us a good look at Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, W Earl Brown as Sheriff Hugo Root, Ian Colletti as Arseface, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, and Lucy Griffiths as Emily, who is a new character created by the show’s writers.
Those writers are, of course, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who also directed the pilot, and Breaking Bad veteran Sam Catlin will be the showrunner. We absolutely can’t wait.
“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.”
Preacher will air on AMC from 22 May 2016, with a UK air date to follow. For more news about the biggest TV series, pick up the latest issue of SciFiNow.
