At the end of season 1 of AMC’s hit series Preacher, the sign outside the Annville, Texas church read “Today: Meet God, Tomorrow: TBD.” Well, the “to be determined” part was incredibly accurate… Annville blew up… ALL OF IT! Luckily, that was behind the dust of the car carrying the trio of Preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Oscar nominee Ruth Negga), and drunk Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). They are on the search for God… no literally, God is missing. Jesse is possessed by Genesis, a half demon half angel force that allows him to control anyone. Oh and yeah, there’s a cowboy from Hell chasing him. Ok, I think we’re caught up.
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.

Warning – SPOILERS for Preacher Season 1 Episode 2 “See…
Two weeks ago, Preacher debuted on AMC and introduced the TV audience to Jesse Custer, a Texas Preacher who is trying to carve out of new life and leave a violent one buried in the past. This proves hard for Jesse (Dominic Cooper), as he and mysterious new friend; a vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) beat up an entire bar full of hooligans, including abusive father Donnie (Derek Wilson), who ends up with a graphically broken arm. While Jesse’s past, particularly his ex-girlfriend and partner Tulip (Ruth Negga), are trying to bring him back to the dark side, a strange otherworldly force has inhabited him. This same force has been turning men of god (and Satan) inside out and outside in, all over the world, and seemingly has a home now in Jesse Custer. This force is so powerful, that when Jesse told an annoying congregant to “open his heart” to his mother, the man flew to Florida and ripped his heart out of his chest in the old folks home! Right on cue, two strange men stalking the mysterious force show up in Annville likely to cause trouble.
