During the season two premiere of Fear the Walking Dead, AMC released a new Preacher teaser from the pilot episode of the upcoming series. The show is an adaptation from a comic created by Garth Ennis (Hellblazer, The Boys, Crossed) and based on the comic book published by Vertigo (a DC Comics imprint), The original plot and premise of Preacher was spun out of Ennis’ run on Hellblazer, which postulated what would happen if an angel and a demon mated, and the spirit of their offspring ended up in a mortal man.
Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse embarks on a journey to, literally, find God, joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun).
The sneak peek below is non-stop action and shows you a great deal of badassery from the premiere episode. Tulip makes quite a first impression, doesn’t she?
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
