Like Its Cousin The Walking Dead, AMC’s Preacher Will Not Always Follow the Comics

Revealed by the L.A. Times’ Hero Complex from their coverage of the Television Critics Association AMC panel, fans of the 1995 comic series Preacher will have some surprises in store.

Headlining the panel were producers Seth Rogen, Sam Catlin and Evan Goldberg along with series’ stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun. Taking on a number of questions including the show’s deviation from its source material, Seth Rogen had this to say, “It didn’t seem, at first, that we should do it that way but then we talked to Garth [Ennis]. And Garth very much encouraged us to make a lot of small changes and to make it a good show first and foremost.” He continued, adding, “Our big thing is we want fans who love the comic to get everything they want, but to also make some new twists and turns. And for them to be surprised and not know what to expect on a weekly basis.”

Though older than its AMC comic book brethren, Preacher – written by comics icon Garth Ennis – has been in limbo for years and could quite possibly have higher expectations than The Walking Dead did when it first debuted. All that’s left is the watch’n!
