AMC’s ‘Preacher’ hits Hulu in April, season 2 debuts this summer
Hulu grabs another exclusive
AMC’s hit series “Preacher” is coming to Hulu soon, so everyone can catch up on the first season before season 2 hits the network this summer. Season one, comprised of 10 episodes, is now available On Demand and on AMC.com beginning today through Tuesday, April 4th – with the first two episodes of the season available unauthenticated. Season one can also be streamed exclusively on Hulu beginning Wednesday, April 5th. The show was a huge hit for AMC, and was quickly picked up for a second-season. AMC is currently a powerhouse of its own, offering series like “The Walking Dead” which has been the highest-rated series in cable history and the number one show on television among adults 18-49 for the last five years.
“Preacher” is based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s popular ‘90’s cult comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher” season one follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), who is inhabited by the renegade spawn of an angel and demon and gains the power to control people with just a word. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award® nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
“Preacher” season two debuts this summer with a genre-bending thrill ride that follows Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy as they embark on a road trip to find God, dealing with issues both worldly and other-worldly along the way. The network did not give an exact date for the premiere at this time. Fans can expect an announcement, and a teaser trailer or two, from the studio sometime over the next few weeks.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg (“This Is the End,” “Superbad,” “Neighbors”) and showrunner and executive producer Sam Catlin (“Breaking Bad”). In addition to Catlin, the series is executive produced by Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter and Ken F. Levin.
AMC’s other current original drama series include “Better Call Saul,” “Hell on Wheels,” “Turn: Washington’s Spies,” “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Humans,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Into the Badlands,” “The Night Manager,” “Preacher,” and the forthcoming “The Son,” “The Terror,” “Lodge 49,” “Loaded” and “McMafia.” AMC also explores authentic worlds and discussion with original shows like “Talking Dead,” “The Making of The Mob,” “Comic Book Men,” “Ride with Norman Reedus” and “The American West.”
