The television version of Garth Ennis's Preacher has been greenlit for a full season, following a positive reception to the internal pilot episode. AMC will shoot ten episodes, with the season expected to debut in May 2016.
Garth Ennis's comic series has been optioned several times before by various studios (including HBO) but has stumbled due to its controversial subject matter. The latest attempt was spearheaded by comedian, writer and actor Seth Rogen, who remains on board as executive producer. Evan Goldberg will also produce, with Breaking Bad's Sam Catlin serving as showrunner.
The series stars Dominic Cooper as Reverend Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip and Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Tom Fiore as Brooke and W. Earl Brown as Sherrif Hugo Root. Recurring actors will include Ian Colletti as Eugene "Arseface" Root, Lucy Griffiths as Emily Woodrow and Elizabeth Perkins as Vyla Quincannon.
