Live-action comic adaptations are all the rage in Hollywood these days, and it seems like the shows and movies based on the properties are making a killing.
Preacher is one of the latest properties to win over audiences on the small screen. With season two fast-approaching, the hype is getting real once again.
As if fans weren't already excited, they have another reason to cheer today. AMC just signed on six new actors for key roles in the second season of Preacher.

There's no word yet on what characters these actors will be playing, but that's a ton of talent added to an already stellar cast.
The second season of Preacher will see Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy on a trip to find God and hold Him accountable for everything that has happened in His absence. Along the way, they’ll cross paths with the Grail, a ruthless, religious secret society whose purposes is at odds with Jesse’s.
