As it was previously reported, Seth Rogen who’s the co-creator and co-writer of the television adaptation of Preacher, tweeted that the series would premiere on AMC in May of 2016. ComicBook.com now has officially broke the news that Preacher has been given a 10 episode run.
Here are the details. Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg with showrunner Sam Catlin. Rogen and Goldberg will produce the series through their Point Grey banner, along with Neal Moritz’s Original Film. AMC indicated that the series will premiere in mid-2016.
In an interview with Show-Runner Sam Caitlin and Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV speaks more on the news of the series and what’s to come
“Couldn’t be more happy with Sony/AMC’s decision to bring Garth’s amazing Preacher to television,” said Caitlin, who wrote the pilot. “Can’t wait to spend some quality time with vampires, psychopaths, rednecks and God.”
“Garth Ennis’ Preacher is, above all, about great characters – something we look for in all of our series,” “The fact that it is also darkly funny, has some great supernatural elements, and takes us on an incredible adventure is just the icing on the cake. The incredible creative team behind this show – led by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Sam Catlin and Neal Moritz – made a pilot that completely blew us away, and we know the series will satisfy and surprise fans of the comics, and captivate fans of great TV everywhere.”

If 2016 wasn’t already filled with so many exciting premieres. AMC tends to have shows that run up to 13 episodes, so 10 is pretty close to a full season for the network and further shows the confidence in its product.
