A.D., the follow-up to Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s hit mini-series The Bible, now has an airdate. NBC announced today that the 12-hour series will premiere on Easter Sunday next year, i.e. April 5. That makes sense, since the series will begin with the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus — territory already covered at some length by The Bible — before it proceeds to show how the Church grew beyond that point. No word on who will star in it yet.
