Black Jesus Trailer

Aaron McGruder’s “Black Jesus” Extended Trailer

Glory be to the Lord! It looks like all of our collective prayers have been answered. No longer will we have to wait for the arrival of a comedic savior, for he is him.

Adult Swim has dropped the official extended trailer for their new series Black Jesus, and it’s chock full of divine goodness. Building upon the previous YouTube mini-series of the same name, we get a new version teeming with action, cameos, and of course knowledge of the mystical and esoteric variety.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the show:

From the creator for The Boondocks, Aaron Mcgruder’s new upcoming series puts Jesus in the present day in Compton trying to spread peace, kindness and help through the show with a few neighborhood followers by his side.

You can expect to see a bunch of familiar faces, when you check out this jammie jam, including Charlie MurphyCorey HolcombAndrew “King Bach” BachelorJohn Witherspoon, and more. 

Hit the video player up top to check out the new trailer, and mark that date for the rapture for the August 7 premiere of Adult Swim’s Black Jesus. If you haven’t seen the YouTube mini-series yet, check it out below.
