AMC’s Preacher TV series will air in the UK exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
The supernatural drama, based on the graphic novels by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
Agent Carter’s Dominic Cooper stars as Jesse, with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Ruth Negga playing Tulip and Joseph Gilgun (This Is England, Misfits) joining the cast as Cassidy. The talent behind the team is just as promising, with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This Is The End, Superbad, Bad Neighbours) producing and Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) on board as showrunner.
Amazon Prime Video will be the exclusive home of the series’ first run in the UK, Austria, Germany and Japan.
In the US, the show’s pilot will premiere on AMC on Sunday 22nd May, following the Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 finale. In the UK, the pilot will be released in the UK on Monday 23rd May. Episode 2 will then be released on Monday 6th June, with futher episodes arriving every subsequent Monday, within 24 hours of their US broadcast.
“Preacher is one of the most ambitious and highly-anticipated new series of the year, and exactly the kind of show we want to bring our Prime members around the world,” says Brad Beale, Vice President of Worldwide Television Acquisition for Amazon. “Sitting alongside shows like The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mr Robot, Fear The Walking Dead and the upcoming Clarkson, Hammond and May show, The Grand Tour, Preacher is another great addition to our line-up and we think our customers are going to love it.”
Amazon Prime Video costs £5.99 a month, or is included within an annual Amazon Prime membership, which costs £79 a month. For more information, head this way, or read on for the trailer:
