AMC has taken a bold step forward in adapting one of the most violent, intriguing, and dark comic books out there: Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s Preacher. Though superfans like show creators Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen know Preacher inside and out, the general TV-watching audience out there might need a bit of a primer before they dive into another comic book-inspired series. With that in mind, the network has released three fantastic featurettes that introduce the show’s characters and mythology while showing off the look of the series.
That’s not to say fans of the comics should skip these videos; they give a great introduction to the live-action adaptation of Preacher. There are also plenty of Easter eggs that will confuse the daylights out of the casual viewer but delight comic readers. If you’d prefer to approach this one cold, it’s best to avoid the featurettes since they could be considered spoilery.
Starring Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, and Jospeh Gilgun, Preacher debuts on AMC May 22nd at 10/9c. Check out these excellent behind-the-scenes featurettes for AMC’s Preacher below:
