AMC's Preacher Will Bless Television In 2016

Last night during The Walking Dead, AMC gave us our first glimpse into one of their upcoming shows for 2016.  It's another comic book show and not unlike Walking Dead, just so happens to be one of my favorite series of all time.  And again, much like the mind blowing announcement that Walking Dead would be a television series, this new comic adaptation is both unbelievable and exciting.

Preacher is coming.

The series, which filmed its pilot earlier this year, is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic book series of the same name. With Breaking Bad's Sam Catlin serving as showrunner and developed for TV by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun.

The new AMC drama follows Cooper as Jesse Custer, a preacher in a small town in Texas who develops special abilities. Negga stars as Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tulip, while Gilgun plays an Irish vampire named Cassidy. Together they set off on a journey to find God in the flesh.
Preacher is slated for a mid-2016 premiere on AMC.

Check out the first trailer, and I would advise if you don't know anything about Preacher, but like what you see below, maybe just wait to find out what the show is about.  It is worth the surprise, believe me.

I cannot stress enough how excited I am for this.
