We’re finally hitting the road in the second season of AMC’s critically-acclaimed, supernatural series “Preacher”, which will return on Sunday, June 25th.
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.
While I loved the first season, I’m dying for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to get the show on the road in adapting Garth Ennis’ comic series. This footage brings the spirit of the comic books to life as Jesse and Tulip discuss the best strategy for how to find God while Cassidy obsesses over a disturbing fact about the male anatomy. It’s got that Tarantino vibe I always loved in the books and promises that we’re finally going to see the gang hunt God down…
In this additional featurette, the cast (Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun) and creators (Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg) discuss why being on the road raises the stakes, adds even more mayhem and why Jesse is no longer hampered by the rules.
“Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher” is an absurdly twisted and action-packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer (Cooper), a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip (Negga), Jesse’s volatile true love, and Cassidy (Gilgun), an 119-year-old Irish vampire and Jesse’s best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable killer cowboy from Hell.”
