We’ve been waiting for this moment for what feels like an eternity. AMC’s live action spin on the cult smash comic, Preacher is headed home on Sunday, May 22nd, at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. While we wait for the weeks to pass, we finally have ourselves a glimpse of the first official teaser. There’s a lot of insanity stuffed into an extremely small window of time, but Preacher fans are going to love it. Genre fans are going to love it. If it ends up being half as good as it looks, Preacher co-creator, Garth Ennis will probably love it.
We’re excited to – at long last – share this one with you. It truly has been a long time coming, but every minute of it was worth it, as the new teaser is a certified winner on all fronts. It can’t be argued, Preacher is something you should be looking into come May. If you’re foreign to the truly epic comic run, seek it out – you won’t be disappointed.
