Preacher (AMC, Mondays, 9/8C) takes a couple of side trips this week as we learn more about Tulip’s past and Jesse and Cassidy discover something startling about Fake God – and that Jesse has 137 jazz clubs yet to visit. Then there’s Eugene in Hell…
The first season Preacher introduced us to preacher Jesse Custer, his ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare and the Irish vampire, Cassidy and set up the story of a man searching for God – literally.
The DC comic on which the show is based was, essentially, a road trip as the trio searched for God to find out why he had abandoned Heaven (and his believers).
Today, AMC released four “Preacher” key art images in anticipation of the show’s second season featuring its “Powerful” trio: Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). The critically-acclaimed, supernatural series returns with a two-night event, beginning with the season premiere on Sunday, June 25th (10:00/9C), followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26th (9:00/8C) in the series’ regular time slot.
Season two of Preacher finds Jessie Custer, ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare and Irish vampire Cassidy on the road, and looking for the absent God – with whom Jessie desires a very specific conversation.
Somehow that will involve a Dalmation man and a small army’s worth of heavy ordnance – not to mention a soundtrack from Dexy’s Midnight Runners…
AMC’s Preacher is based on the Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon comic about a burned out preacher who is given a supernatural gift that seems to cause nothing but, so he sets out find God (wherever He may be) and have a word with him about it.
The first season served as a prequel to the tale the comics tell and season two will find Jesse Custer, his ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare and Irish vampire Cassidy on the road to literally find God. Chaos ensures.
Ahead of the show’s SXSW panel, AMC has released a gallery of first look photos – which follows. As always, double click to embiggen.
Preacher returns on Monday, June 19th (9/8C).
AMC is taking its largest contingent ever to SXSW 2017 – with panels, signings, a screening and a pop up restaurant!
The network’s big screening is the world premiere of The Son – followed by a Q&A with star Pierce Brosnan.
Preacher Season Two will be the subject of a panel with executive producer Seth Rogen, showrunner Sam Catlin and co-executive producer/comics creator Garth Ennis.
The most unusual event is the pop up Los Pollos Hermanos restaurant – where Better Call Saul fans can sample Gus Fring’s menu from Friday, March 10th to Sunday, March 12th – and maybe even run into Bob Odenkirk and/or Giancarlo Esposito on Sunday.
For a complete list of events, read on.

The home of Into The Badlands, The Walking Dead, Turn and more adds another potential hit to their solid lineup. The long awaited series Preacher, finally hits AMC Network this week. Premiering Sunday, May 22, at 10pm, Preacher tries to continue their trend of semi-greatness.
The first few episodes of AMC’s Preacher (Sunday, 10/9C) – adapted from the comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon about a preacher who, with two unlikely friends, goes looking for God with the intent of bringing Him back – is a unique series that features that unlikely trio, but does not (yet) go galloping off in all directions.
Which is good, because it gives us time to get to not only know a bit about the characters but see them in a consistent environment – however strange and twisted it might be.
