Check out our Preacher recap. 

The highly anticipated adaptation of Preacher has arrived on AMC. The show premiered on Sunday following the mid-season finale of Fear The Walking Dead and drew in a reported 2.4 million viewers.

Out of the 2.4 million, 1.1 million were adults among 18-49. This is a modest viewership compared to that of the 6.39 million who tuned into Into The Badlands following an episode of The Walking Dead but despite that, Preachers demo results make it the second best scripted series debut of 2016.

Preacher will be changing time slots and moving to its regular 9 p.m. slot starting on June 5th with original episodes. Leading off the Sunday lineup for AMC on Sunday will be newcomer Feed The Beast, followed by Preacher.

Preacher is being produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and is based off of the DC/Vertigo comic book by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. showrunner Sam Catlin, known for working on AMC’s Breaking Bad is also on board the project.

Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef and Tom Brooke.

Based on the twisted and popular ’90s comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher, created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, is the story of Jesse Custer – a conflicted Preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse, his ex-girlfriend, Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy embark on a journey to, literally, find God.
