“This is why I’ve come home to save you,” it says.
Based on the cult comic book of the same name, Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a faithless man of the cloth who returns to his Texas hometown and is granted a highly unconventional power by a mysterious entity. Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) plays his ex-girlfriend Tulip, and Joseph Gilgund (The Last Witch Hunter) is an Irish vampire named Cassidy.
Preacher debuts May 22 on AMC, after the midseason finale of Fear the Walking Dead. Watch the new teaser above.
