The tagline for this series is "The Beginning is Nigh".
The pilot episode had a special 90-minute running time.
A follow-up feature, "Talking Preacher", hosted by Chris Hardwick, aired on the night following the initial broadcast of the pilot episode. It was a 30-minute talk-show segment in much the same vein as "The Talking Dead", which accompanied The Walking Dead.
In June of 2016, AMC announced that Preacher would receive a second season with an expanded episode order of thirteen episodes.
