‘Preacher’ Season 3 Ordered by AMC

preacher season 3

Praise the lord! Or hail Satan! Or just say thanks to the suits at AMC. Preacher season 3 is officially going forward, which is excellent news for those still watching the blasphemous and incredibly entertaining comic adaptation about the super-powered preacher, his criminal ex-girlfriend, and their vampire buddy who go on a quest to literally find God. At the very least, their journey will continue for at least one more year.

Preacher Season Finale Review

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

Here it is. The end of the road. We knew that things wouldn’t end well for Jesse, Cassidy, and Tulip in the season 2 finale, but we probably didn’t know how bad things would get.

Comic book readers had an idea, however, and are probably giddy at what this episode means for the season to come. A trip to Angelville is in order…

Preacher On Your Knees

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

Last episode, we all wondered where The Saint was, and now it’s been revealed – The Grail has him, and are using him as a weapon to take out Jesse. After all, what better way is there to take out one stubborn bastard than with the king of them?

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

Fans of the Preacher comic knew that the real purpose of The Grail would one day be revealed, and that day is today. Herr Starr’s white-suited organization guards the most important person in the world from harm, for only He can lead us and guide us when it becomes time for the end of the world.

That man is Jesus Christ’s 25th great-grandson: Humperdoo.

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

At first, it seemed like this season was when Preacher would get back on the comic book track, but by now it’s very obvious that the show is very much its own thing. This has turned out to be a very big plus. This second season has transformed a middling-if-strangely-watchable TV show into a can’t miss experience, with nearly each episode showing off different genres, filmmaking styles, and badass action scenes. This is a hodgepodge of ideas and nutty characters that somehow works, and does things that no one on TV is even attempting.

Case in point this week’s episode, “Puzzle Pieces,” which casts a new light on our heroes.

Preacher Holes review

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

Preacher’s second season has been all about the peaks and valleys, and this is a valley episode. After all the chaos and action of the last few hours, they needed a breather, and “Holes” lets all the characters take stock of where they are and what to do next…even if they’re not sure what that is.

What we do have is the appearance of some fan-favorite characters from the comic and the return of surprisingly jacked Arseface, who is doing his best Robert De Niro while working out in his prison cell to the music from Cape Fear. What more could we need?
