Preacher Viktor Review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Preacher season 2 by examining the differences between the original comics and AMC’s television adaptation.)

When Preacher’s second season started, longtime fans of the comic were really excited. Here was the road trip story we were waiting for, the one that started in the very first issue of the Preacher comic but somehow got ignored as the first season was an extended stay in one town. Most of the comic book run sees our heroes getting into adventures on their journey across America. They’d have brief stops in cities, but they kept moving and kicking ass. Nothing could stop them from finding God.

The first few episodes of the show certainly felt like that, but it wasn’t meant to last. “Viktor” slows down the proceedings and the show feels seems doomed to repeat itself, as if it were trapped in a hell of its own creation.

Preacher Damsels Review

(Each week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Preacher season 2 by examining the differences between the original comics and AMC’s television adaptation.)

After last week’s episode of Preacher, which went off-book in some pretty significant ways, “Damsels” continues the trend. The story is going in the same general direction as the acclaimed ’90s Vertigo series, but the journey is taking a few unexpected twists and turns.

One thing is for sure though – Herr Starr is going to be a big part of it.

Preacher Season 2 Promo

Preacher is back for a second season on AMC. Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on the road looking for God but they’re not alone – The Cowboy (Graham McTavish), introduced last season, is on their tail.

Showrunner Sam Catlin developed the Preacher series alongside Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and the second season continues to toy with elements of the comic book. For instance, Eugene (Ian Colletti) is in Hell, reliving his “Arseface” origin while the lead trio meet new characters back on Earth.

Catlin spoke with /Film by phone this week to discuss Preacher season 2. While he was tight-lipped on some spoilers, he revealed some major comic book characters coming this season and addressed some of the encounters in the first three episodes of the new season.

preacher season 2 trailer

When AMC revealed the initial trailers for the first season of Preacher, fans of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s beloved and blasphemous comic book raised an eyebrow at the dreary tone on display. For the longest time, the network seemed to be dancing around the series’ goofier aspects, trying avoid the blend of horror, comedy, and fantasy that actually drives the plot forward in favor of selling a gritty thriller to the millions of people tuning in for The Walking Dead.

All of that has changed with the new season and the new Preacher season 2 trailer is silly and weird and unapologetic about the fact that this is the story of a man with the power to command others using “the word of God” going on adventures with his deadly ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire. Preacher is finally starting to look like Preacher.

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?
