Dominic Cooper to return in Preacher
AMC has renewed Preacher for a second season, starring British actor Dominic Cooper.
Preacher follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Cooper), who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy (played by Joseph Gilgun) come together and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
The cast also features Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef, Tom Brooke, Derek Wilson and Ian Colletti.
The 13-part series is a darkly comedic supernatural drama based on the ’90s comic book series created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, and adapted by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said: “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.”
Preacher season 1 is currently airing in the US Sundays at 10pm on AMC, and available on Amazon Prime Instant Video in the UK. Season 2 will air in 2017.
