‘Preacher’ Renewed For Season 2 On AMC
The show is currently airing its first season run of ten episodes — which will expand to 13 episodes for the second season, slated to air in 2017.
The series based on the comic by Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, has become one of the top series on cable this year, with over three million viewers per episode.
Preacher was developed by executive producers Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin; Catlin also serves as showrunner and writer.
“Preacher is a special television program and we’re eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis’ graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary.”
“We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond,” Collier praised.
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Texan preacher Jesse Custer — who is inhabited by a mysterious entity called Genesis that gives him the power to make people do whatever he commands.
Preacher airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on AMC.
