Even though we’ve had quite a few teasers and promos for AMC’s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s controversial comic series, Preacher, none of them have really given us any proper insight into the story, or what we can expect from the characters. Well, that all changes today with this revealing 5-minute featurette.

In addition to interviews with showrunners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and cast members Dominic Cooper (Jesse Custer), Joseph Gilgun (Cassidy) and Ruth Negga (Tulip O’Hare), we also get to see the characters interact and actually converse for the first time.

This highlights some key changes from the source material – including the fact that in this adaptation, Tulip and Jesse are childhood friends that grew up together in Anneville. Plus, we also get our first glimpse of the show’s supernatural element, as Jesse is possessed by the entity known as Genesis.

Also starring Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sherriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface, Preacher is set to premiere on Sunday, May 22nd at 10:00pm ET/PT via AMC.
