AMC has released the opening few minutes of its upcoming "Preacher" adaptation from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Catlin.

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 (Dominic Cooper) 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 (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embark on a journey to, literally, find God.

Additionally, it's been revealed that Amazon will carry "Preacher" in the United Kingdom, Japan and Germany -- available to Amazon Prime members a day after each episode's release in the U.S.

Amazon exec Brad Beale told Deadline, "Preacher is one of the most ambitious and highly-anticipated new series of the year, and exactly the kind of show we want to bring our Prime members around the world...Sitting alongside shows like The Man in the High Castle, Transparent, Mr Robot, Fear The Walking Dead and the upcoming Clarkson, Hammond and May show, The Grand Tour, Preacher is another great addition to our lineup and we think our customers are going to love it."

Premieres Sunday, May 22 on AMC
