AMC Airs ‘Preacher’ Season 2 Trailer
The second season will have 13 episodes, and will continue where the first season left off as Preacher Jesse Custer, his thief/assassin ex-girlfriend Tulip, and his best friend, the Irish vampire Cassidy, as they continue on their road trip to find God and bring him back to his seat in Heaven.
Based on the comic book franchise published by Vertigo of the same name, Preacher is an incredibly strange and wild supernatural drama that follows a preacher hailing from West Texas, Jesse Custer, as he struggles to align his beliefs and past with his role as taking over his fathers church. However, everything changes when he’s possessed by a mysterious being that makes people do whatever he says to them – unfortunately, very literally.
Through attracting the unwanted attention of angels, Jesse finds out that the creature is called Genesis, and is an abomination too powerful for anyone to control – so powerful, it has frightened away God himself.
Preacher has been developed for television by Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express, The Green Hornet, Sausage Party) and Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin, starring Dominic Cooper (Dracula Untold, Agent Carter, Mamma Mia!), Joseph Gilgun (Misfits, Ripper Street, This Is England ’90) and Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Loving, Misfits). Graham McTavish (24, Prison Break, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies) will be returning as The Cowboy, a.k.a. The Saint of Killers.
New additions to the cast include Noah Taylor (Vanilla Sky, Game of Thrones, Peaky Blinders), Pip Torrens (The Crown, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Versailles), Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul, Fargo, Major Crimes), Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People, Nerd Court, Timeless), Ronald Guttman (All My Children, Heroes, Girl Most Likely) and Justin Prentice (iZombie, Awkward., 13 Reasons Why). None of these actors have had their official roles confirmed yet, though with production well under-way and the second season due to return officially this summer, it’s likely fans will know soon.
Preacher will return 19th June 2017 with the first episode ‘On the Road’.
