We first heard that Netflix was planning to adapt Mark Millar's 2004 Dark Horse comic trilogy, American Jesus, back in 2018, but updates on the project had been practically non-existent since.
Now, the streamer has unveiled the first poster for the series, which has been retitled The Chosen One.
Millar confirmed that the first season will adapt the first graphic novel, Chosen, while also sharing the show's premise.
"A little kid finds out that the reason his mother disappeared with him and they're hiding out in a small town is because he's the returned Jesus Christ and they're doing everything they can to stay alive so he can grow up and face the Antichrist in the City of Megiddo as per the biblical prophecy."
"What they've done with this is just masterful," he added. "It looks like Roma or City of God, a six part series of absolute beauty, and I've loved every second of this."
Check out the poster, which sees the messianic protagonist staring at some power lines in the shape of a cross, below.
Netflix's The Chosen One was directed by Everardo Gout (The Purge), who also produced and wrote the series with his brother Leopoldo Gout.
No official premiere date has been announced.
