AMC has finally set a date for the return of “Preacher,” the show will be going into its third season later this summer. The network will debut season 4 of the popular series on June 24th, and the new season will consist of 10 episodes. Seth Rogen, the executive producer of the show, confirmed the season 3 premiere date on Sunday’s “Talking Dead,” just as AMC fans were recapping their viewing of “The Walking Dead”.
“Preacher” is a dramatic thriller that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
AMC teased the upcoming season adding, “Jesse Custer’s quest for God takes him back to the place he’s been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past… because the future of the world depends on it.”
“Preacher” stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, Malcolm Barrett and new series regulars Betty Buckley (“Supergirl,” “Split”) and Colin Cunningham (“Blood Drive,” “Falling Skies”). Jeremy Childs (“The Last Castle,” “Nashville”), Liz McGreever (“Star, Nashville”), Jonny Coyne (“Turn,” “Alcatraz”), Adam Croasdell (“Reign”) and Prema Cruz (“Mozart in the Jungle”) are recurring guest stars.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Sausage Party,” “This is the End,” “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, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair and Ken F. Levin.
