Preacher was one of my favorite new shows in 2016, and this Sunday, summer gets started with the second season premiere. Based on the graphic novels by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and created for television by Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, Preacher tells the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a small town preacher from Annville, Texas. Jesse has a dark past heâ€™s trying to leave behind, and that becomes harder when a trio of factors interfere in his life simultaneously. His ex-lover and partner Tulip (Ruth Negga) returns to get him back. A crazy drunken Irish vampire, Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), ends up in his town and becomes his best friend. Oh yeah, and heâ€™s possessed by Genesis, a powerful force that is bred from an angel and demon getting it on. These things plus renegade angels, loads of cops, and the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), a literal cowboy from Hell, are what stand in Jesseâ€™s way as we enter season 2.
Watch the videos below.
In the video â€œA Look Aheadâ€ we see more of the absurd mix of comedy, action, and grisly violence we are accustomed to seeing from Preacher as the trio hit the road in the wake of Annvilleâ€™s destruction at the end of season 1. Itâ€™s great listening to how excited they are about some of the upcoming scenes, one hilarious ones has cops order Cassidy to drop his umbrella. His response, in total thick accented Irish deadpan is, â€œI canâ€™t or Iâ€™ll burst into flames.â€ Everyone is really amped to see both The Saint of Killers in his brutal glory as he hunts them down and Jesseâ€™s gleeful use of Genesis without those pesky Preacher morals he had throughout season 1.
The second clip, “The Search For God,” is a 90-second clip from the season 2 pilot with Jesse and Tulip discussing their destination, a â€œGod detector.â€ All the while Cass is in the back seat trying to engage in a conversation about circumcisions and foreskin leftovers. It is as usual, hilarious and again, as usual, Joseph Gilgun steals the scene.
Preacher returns this Sunday night, June 23rd at 10:00pm ET right after a new Fear the Walking Dead only on AMC.
