To whet the appetite for this Sunday’s season 1 finale of Preacher, AMC released the first five minutes of the episode. To bring you up to speed, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) has a powerful half angel/half demon hellspawn called Genesis inside him. He made perhaps the biggest promise in recorded history… promising God himself will show up in church on Sunday in Annville, Texas. If God doesn’t show, he is forced to publicly denounce the Lord and sign over his church to meat packing magnate, cult leader and psycho killer Odin Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley). If that wasn’t enough pressure, a legit Cowboy from Hell (Graham McTavish) has been commissioned to kill him by renegade angels Fiore (Tom Brooke) and DeBlanc (Anatol Yusef).
San Diego Comic Con just finished up, and soon with it is Preacher which is completing its first season on AMC. Based on the acclaimed graphic novels by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, and brought to you by executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, Preacher has filled the summer void on AMC for The Walking Dead fans pissed off about cliffhanger endings. At SDCC, the Preacher panel was hosted by Kevin Smith and featured Ennis, Rogen, and stars Dominic Cooper (Jesse), Ruth Negga (Tulip), Joseph Gilgun (Cassidy), Graham McTavish (The Cowboy), Ian Colletti (Arseface aka Eugene).
AMC has officially ordered a season two for Preacher, the new TV series from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlin based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon.
The second season order is for an “expanded” season, which will run a total of 13 episodes. The current debut season, which most recently aired episode five “South Will Rise Again,” includes a total of 10 episodes.
If you’re someone who’s excited to watch the new series Preacher but, for whatever reason, are not able to watch it on TV, AMC is making it very easy for all with an internet connection to at least check out the pilot episode.
The entire pilot episode, which first aired on May 22nd, is now available to watch in its entirety, for free and legally, online. And if that wasn’t good enough news on its own, the episode can be watched without any commercials on top of that! It’s as easy as heading below, where the episode awaits thee.
Sure, the Preacher TV series on AMC from Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Sam Catlinlooks pretty great and we’re all very excited to finally check it out this weekend. But Rogen is still best known for his comedy work, so he made sure to put that to use for a Preacher trailer parody starring…you guessed it, Rogen himself.
The video shows the Rogen parody and then a side-by-side with the original trailer. You can check it out below, along with another recently released video offering a peek at a quick but intense car ride involving Tulip O’Hare (played on the show by Ruth Negga).
