Eager to get a taste of the upcoming "Preacher"? Well, you can see the first 5 minutes here, courtesy of AMC.

Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic told the story of Rev. Jesse Custer and his possession by a supernatural entity known as Genesis. The adaptation stars Dominic Cooper as the titular preacher Jesse, Joseph Gilgun as Irish vampire Cassidy and Ruth Negga as Jesse's ex-girlfriend Tulip.

Fans were initially a little sceptical about Sam Caitlin (of "Breaking Bad" fame), Seth Rogen (of stoner comedy infamy) and Evan Goldberg's adaptation of the irreverent, gruesome and gratuitous comic, but from the first few minutes presented here, it looks like it's going to live up to the source material.

From the opening scenes, the show is already embracing the weirdness, the goriness and the supernatural elements of the comic.

"Preacher" will air on AMC, the network that also brought audiences the very popular zombie comic adaptation, "The Walking Dead". The show is set to premiere on May 22.
