With AMC's Preacher having reached its conclusion, Garth Ennis, the co-creator of the popular comic series of which the show is based, offered his take on the adaptation as a whole.
"I think the show had its moments. I’d be the first to admit it didn’t particularly set the world on fire -- but on the other hand, four seasons is not bad nowadays," Ennis told CBR. "Great cast, great direction, great design. Writing was a bit up and down, but that’s the nature of the beast even on better TV shows."
Ennis went on to mention his fondness for the comic series he created with the late artist Steve Dillon. "If that’s the one I’m always known for, that my name will be associated with, then that’s fine by me," he said. Ennis also mentioned that he's happy the show has prompted people to seek out the source material.
In addition to Preacher, Ennis co-created The Boys with artist Darick Robertson, which was adapted into a TV series currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
AMC's Preacher was developed by Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. It stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Noah Taylor, Julie Ann Emery, Mark Harelik and Tyson Ritter.
