Preacher returns to AMC for what promises to be a bolder, bloodier, and even weirder second season on June 25!
For those who somehow missed the first season of the AMC series, Preacher follows criminal turned small town preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) as he, his wild ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an immortal Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a mission to find God… literally. The show, which is an adaptation of the famed Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series of the same name, definitely lives up to its crazy premise – it’s as funny as it is violent, and definitely not for the faint of heart. We’d expect no less from the minds of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Breaking Bad producer Sam Catlin.
We’ve got an exclusive photo of Joseph Gilgun (who plays Cassidy, a 119 year old Irish vampire and Jesse’s best mate) from season two, which you can see below:
Alongside the new photo, AMC has also released the synopsis of season two and the premiere episode:
Episode 201 Synopsis: “On The Road” – Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy hit the road in search of God, and quickly realize they’re being stalked by a killer cowboy from Hell.
Preacher Season 2 Synopsis:
Preacher is an absurdly twisted and action packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer, 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, Jesse’s ex-girlfriend and volatile true love, and Cassidy, a 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.
Preacher season two stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, and new additions 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).
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbors 2, Superbad) and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad). The series is executive produced by Catlin, as well as Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Ken F. Levin, Michael Slovis and the author of the Preacher graphic novel, Garth Ennis.
We spoke to several members of the Preacher cast last season and have written at length about why we love the show. We’re extremely excited for the upcoming second season, which finally sees Jesse Custer and company embark on the road trip to end all road trips. If it’s anything like the first season, it’s going to be a bloody good treat.
Preacher will return for its sophomore season with a special two-night event on Sunday, June 25th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, in the series’ regular time slot.
