There will be a Preacher TV show coming to AMC. How cool is that?! If you ware unaware, Preacher was a comic book series that was part of DC Comics’ Vertigo series. Meaning that it was not superhero based, but more adult and set in a tone that allowed a lot more violence, nudity and cursing. However, superpowers still existed, and the Preacher series was one of their more popular titles for a long time. The title was written by Garth Ennis, who is not shy at showing tons of blood and sex regularly.
The new TV show is going to be given the Walking Dead treatment and will more than likely not have anywhere near as much cursing involved, but we can look forward to a lot of violence. So that is definitely a plus! The main character is Jesse Custer, who is as the title suggests, a Preacher. However he is possessed by an entity called Genesis and has the power to control people by voice command. He also kills his congregation and goes on cross country adventure in search of God and to make God pay for his atrocities to mankind. It’s a pretty intense series.
Check out the trailer below. The series sets to air on AMC in Summer 2016.
