The full-length trailer for Preacher season 2 is now online, teasing Jesse’s crazy road trip (to find God) to come. Based on the comic books of the same name written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Steve Dillon, AMC’s Preacher series was developed by Breaking Bad royalty Sam Catlin, along with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg of Superbad, This Is the End and Sausage Party infamy.
Judging by both the Preacher season 2 teaser and trailer alike, Preacher appears to be heading in a new direction this next season, offering plenty of crazy action and locations along the way. Heading into the new series of episodes on AMC, Preacher will soon see small-town preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his gun-toting ex-girlfriend Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga), and undead Irish playboy Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) embarking on a supernatural road trip sure to feature plenty of demons and angels alike – and the latest trailer promises more of just that.
As said Preacher season 2 trailer illustrates, Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy will soon find themselves “on a mayhem-filled road trip to find God – but Hell is coming after them.” Offering plenty of explosions, close encounters with local law enforcement, and wry wit and good humor, Catlin, Rogen, and Goldberg seem to be having as good a time as ever adapting the original comic book series for television.
Garnering largely positive reviews over the course of its first season, Preacher is quickly earning its salt as a premiere original program on AMC to match the likes of contemporaries such as The Walking Dead. Only time will tell whether or not Catlin, Rogen, and Goldberg will manage to keep the show on track heading into season two, but with any luck viewers who tuned in for the first season will want to see where the program is headed next.
AMC is doing its own part to ensure that interest in and awareness of Preacher season 2 remains high. In addition to the trailers, the network has released multiple Preacher character posters, teasing such key season 2 players as Eugene “Arseface” Root (Ian Colletti) – returning from season 1 – and the new season’s big baddie himself, aka. The Saint of Killers (played by Graham McTavish of The Hobbit movie trilogy and Outlander the TV series fame), along with the show’s returning main crew of hell-raising (anti)heroes.
Preacher season 2 premieres June 25 on AMC at 10 pm EST.
