AMC has announced that the latest comic book adaptation Preacher is set to premier Sunday, May 22 at 10 p.m. ET, straight after the midseason finale of Fear The Walking Dead.
Following the shows premier, Preacher will then move to the 9 p.m. time slot during Fear the Walking Dead‘s midseason hiatus. Check out AMC’s tweet premiering the rather noir-esque poster below.

Preacher is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s 1990s Vertigo Comics series following a Texas preacher, Jesse Custer, who has accidentally become possessed by a supernatural creature named Genesis. Custer then decides to try and find God, who has abandoned Heaven, and is joined by his old girlfriend, Tulip O’Hare, as well as his vampire bestie, Cassidy.
The AMC Preacher series is executive produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Caitlin and stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, and Ruth Negga as Tulip.
