The series from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Sony TV and AMC Studios, is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s cult 1990s comic. It centers on a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Cooper), who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (Gilgun) come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
