Last week AMC gave us our first look at the upcoming TV adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s acclaimed comic book series Preacher [watch it here], and chatting to Comic Book, Ennis has shared his thoughts on the trailer for the hotly-anticipated series.
“I’m delighted with it,” states Ennis. “I like Jesse’s grim dialogue taking you through it, and his explosion into violence. And Cassidy’s little moment at the end is the icing on the cake… I’ve seen the pilot, which I think is excellent – the trailer hits just the right note. The thought of watching each episode as it’s completed, seeing what they’ve done with the story [has me excited]. They’ve added a good deal to the basic plot of Preacher, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the results.”

Based on the twisted and popular ‘90s comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher,” created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, 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, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God. The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (“This Is the End,” “Superbad,” “Neighbors”) and showrunner Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”).
Preacher is set to premiere in May 2016.
