preacher season 2 premiere date

Yesterday, a trio of new actors joined the cast of Preacher and we took a stab at who they could be playing. Today, we learned when the second season of AMC’s comic book adaptation will premiere. The date arrives alongside a batch of new images from the set, which seem to depict one of the comic’s most famous sequences. You can take a look for yourself below.

new preacher actors

I have my qualms with the first season of AMC’s Preacher, but for the most part, the series pulled off the impossible – it’s a show that felt an awful lot like Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s classic comic book series, even when it diverged from the story in a big way. Showrunner Sam Catlin and his team eschewed the aspects of the comic series that haven’t aged well and doubled down on the stuff that has aged beautifully. Namely, the characters, their relationships, and the way that dusty, Texas atmosphere mingles with so much blasphemous fantasy.

A group of new actors have joined the second season of the show, including Game of Thrones and Star Wars veterans. But the news stops there. We have no idea who they’re playing. So how about we crack open the comic series and take a guess?

Sausage Party Preacher

Sausage Party screened during San Diego Comic-Con this year. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-wrote the raunchy animated comedy about supermarket food that dreams of being taken home by a customer. Once purchased, the food panics that they are being eaten. Rogen was at a press conference for his AMC series Preacher and discussed the mashup of genres in Sausage Party, although he corrected me when I suggested it blended R-rated comedy with the animation genre.  Read More »

preacher influences

With two episodes left in its first season — and now only one as of publication — Preacher came to San Diego Comic-Con. The cast and creators of the show gave a press conference, where Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg dodged questions about the finale or second season with jokes. They did reveal some noteworthy behind-the-scenes stories though, particularly that a frequent collaborator of theirs was once considered for the lead role of Jesse Custer.

“We had a nice conversation with James Franco at one point,” Goldberg said. “He looks very Jesse-ish. He was into it but just literally he has to make 4,000 things in 20 different formats. It would take up his time and he wouldn’t be able to do a Tori Spelling movie or whatever the hell he was going to do.”  Read More »

Preacher renewed

Jesse Custer may not be a very good preacher, or even a very good person, but for the past several weeks he’s been one hell of a reason to look forward to Sundays. And AMC wants to make sure you keep coming back to that little church in Annville. As Preacher passes the halfway mark of its first season, AMC has renewed it for an expanded second season, to consist of 13 episodes.  Read More »
