AMC Renews ‘Preacher’ For Season 4

Whilst some comic book adaptations are having a rough time today (see Marvel post), others are thriving, as AMC announces Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher will be back for a 4th Season.

Based on the Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon comic book series, the show stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a preacher in the little Texas town of Annville. After becoming possessed by Genesis, a supernatural entity produced by the unholy coupling of an angel and a demon, he gains the ability to make people do his bidding. Jesse enlists the help of Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) the Irish vampire, and Tulip (Ruth Negga), his rather unhinged but extremely badass ex-girlfriend, as they head off in search of God who has, apparently, gone missing. Season 3 of the drama took Jessie back home to Angelville, somewhere he had spent his entire life trying to avoid.

“Preacher is a show unlike any other on television,” commented David Madden, President Of Programming, Entertainment Networks, AMC. “A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy and have followed along with their adventures, at times indescribable adventures, for three seasons. We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan and Sam for everything they have brought to this series, which we are pleased to renew for a fourth season. Like the superfans of Preacher, we can’t wait to see where this journey leads next.”

Rogen and Goldberg are having a pretty good year with tv shows at the moment. Along with the renewal of ‘Preacher’, they also have ‘Future Man’ which airs on Syfy in the UK, and an adaptation of another Garth Ennis comic book, ‘The Boys’, alongside ‘Supernatural’ & ‘Timeless’ creator Eric Kripke coming to Amazon in 2019. Outside of comic books, they have dark comedy ‘Black Monday’ coming to Showtime in 2019 starring Don Cheadle, about the 1987 Wall Street crash. ‘Black Monday’ should air on Sky Atlantic in the UK as part of their overall carriage deal.

You can find ‘Preacher‘ Seasons 1 to 3 on Amazon Prime UK.
