AMC’s Preacher has a premiere date: The supernatural dark comedy will debut right after the midseason finale of Fear the Walking Dead

The 10-episode first season kicks off Sunday, May 22 at 10 p.m. ET. Preacher, based on the 1990s comic series, follows the adventures of a West Texas preacher with a mysterious power. The series hails from executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Caitlin and stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, and Ruth Negga. 

Attendees of the South by Southwest festival will get to see the pilot early — on Monday, in fact — at a premiere screening at the Paramount Theater.
