Photos Prove “Preacher” is Returning This June!

AMC announced today from the SXSW Festival that the critically-acclaimed, supernatural series “Preacher” will return for season two on Monday, June 19th at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT. The network also released six first-look photos from the new season, which promise that the Saint of Killers is about to begin tracking down Jesse and Tulip.

The expanded second season, consisting of 13 episodes, is a genre-bending thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

Series showrunner and executive producer Sam Catlin, executive producer Seth Rogen and graphic novelist and co-executive producer Garth Ennis will participate in a panel discussion at SXSW on Saturday, March 11th at 2:00 P.M. CST in Room 18ABCD of the Austin Convention Center. The panel will explore the making of “Preacher,” adapting the series from the comic book and Rogen’s experience directing the series’ action-packed scenes, among other topics. Attendees will also catch an exclusive first look at season two, which will hopefully arrive online soon thereafter.

Season one, comprised of 10 episodes, is currently available on Blu-ray and DVD as well as On Demand and on AMC.com through Tuesday, April 4th – with the first two episodes of the season available unauthenticated. Season one can also be streamed exclusively on Hulu beginning Wednesday, April 5th.

The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbors 2, Superbad) and showrunner Catlin (“Breaking Bad”). The series is executive produced by Catlin, as well as Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter and Ken F. Levin.

“Preacher” season two stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, and new additions Noah Taylor (“Peaky Blinders,” “Game of Thrones”), Pip Torrens (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, My Week with Marilyn), Julie Ann Emery (“Better Call Saul,” “Fargo”), Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People), Justin Prentice (“13 Reasons Why,” “Awkward”) and Ronald Guttman (“Mozart in the Jungle,” “Mad Men”).

    Awesome. I’m one of the five people in the world who likes the show better than the comics (it’s probably the lack of beastiality. Imagine my relief when I got through the whole season with no one f*cking a fish).

      Haha no shit. I watched the show before i read some of the comic but i was happy they didn’t put that in there and hope they don’t in the future.

  • Matt Graupman

    The whole first season was a drawn out tease. I understand the need to introduce the characters and story to people who haven’t read the comic, but I’m hoping the second season really lets things rip.

    This show is waaay out there, but I found it to be pretty entertaining.

    Not to be a dick, but I thought AMC pretty much announced that they were renewing it for a second series about halfway through the first.
