It’s been close to two years since AMC announced that they’d be developing Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s legendary comic Preacher for television. Now, after a brief teaser, they’ve finally given viewers the first decent look. The result, thankfully, is exactly what’s supposed to happen when you hire Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to adapt one of the darkest, most irreverent Vertigo titles of the ’90s. In the clip, a young boy (Thomas Barbusca, aka Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp‘s “Burp King of Westchester”) asks preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) to hurt his father, who it’s implied is physically abusive. “People say before you were a preacher,” the kid says, “you did things.” Custer’s reply—“how bad d’you want him hurt?”—leads to a montage that gives us glimpses of Custer’s girlfriend Tulip, his vampire buddy Cassiday, and any number of dead bodies and fires. What it doesn’t give us a glimpse of, and we know you’re wondering this, is Arseface. Don’t worry, we know he’ll come along sooner or later.

Preacher comes to AMC in 2016.
