AMC hopes Preacher becomes the latest comic book-inspired hit for the cable TV network when it premieres following the Fear The Walking Dead midseason finale tonight. If early reviews and critical reaction to the Pilot episode are any indication then Preacher has a bright future ahead of it. Watch Preacher live streaming online free tonight on AMC or later on via Amazon.com to see where it begins.
Preacher draws its inspiration from the 1990s comic book by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. It centers around preacher Jessie Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted man whose body is inhabited by a mysterious presence that gives him unconventional power. Together with his girlfriend (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire (Joseph Gilgun), they come together in hopes of finding God.
As with The Walking Dead before it, Preacher is not a show you want to sit down with your kids and watch. It promises to be dark, violent and comedic, pushing boundaries wherever it can.
Preacher was developed for television by the comedy team of Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg with Sam Catlin of Breaking Bad serving as showrunner. The talent in front of and behind the camera should be enough to draw in a huge premiere crowd and solid ratings.
The Preacher premiere start time tonight is 10/9c on AMC or immediately following Fear The Walking Dead. You can watch Preacher live free online streaming for select cable and satellite providers here at the official AMC website that you can access on computers, phones, tablets and more in case you need a second screen.
Amazon.com will offer Preacher episodes here from tonight’s episode and forward. Also keep in mind that next weekend’s Preacher premiere encore will be immediately followed by the live Talking Preacher after show hosted by Chris Hardwick, as well as the Season 1 finale later this summer.
