Dark times are ahead and we’re all going to need one hell of a preacher. Luckily, we have one.
The teaser trailer was released by AMC following The Walking Dead series seven finale, and features a two minute montage of the kind of action and surrealistic we the viewers are in for with the new season; Explosions, Hell-Spawn assassins, dog fetishists – everything we could have hoped for.
Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is set to return in season two of the hit show Preacher on Sunday, June 25th 2017, accompanied his best buddy Cassidy the Vampire (Joseph Gilgun) and the smooth but volatile thieve/assassin/general badass Tulip (Ruth Negga).
The new season also comes with a view exciting additions to the cast, bringing 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) along for the existential and wholly unwholesome road trip of a lifetime – or afterlife-time for some participating.
The small preview of the Preacher season two content promise more of that winning season one combination, with more gore, more hellbent venegence and supernatural powers, more dog costumes; however ,we’ll be moving out of the small country town and hitting the road with the Unholy Trinity on a mission to find God and bringing us along with them through “a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.”
The show is co-produced by creator Sam Caitlin of Breaking Bad fame, and the first season was a perfect combination of that tense, sweaty, morally ambiguous tone of Breaking Bad along with the explicit and often perverse wit of producer/creators Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg. The show is also produced by Ken. F Levin, Jason Netter, Vivian Cannon, Ori Marmur, Neal H. Moritz and James Weaver.
Season one, comprised of 10 episodes, is currently available on Blu-ray™ and DVD as well as On Demand and on AMC.com
