Today at the SXSW Festival, AMC announced that the Season 2 premiere of their critically-acclaimed, supernatural series Preacher will air Monday, June 19 at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT. Aside from that, the cable network also released a synopsis, official cast, and six first-look photos.
The images feature scenes from the Season 2 premiere as well as behind-the-scenes images. Some of the highlight include Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy sharing a bed; the Saint of Killers inspecting what looks like ground meat; Jesse and Tulip ducking behind a police car as bullets fly all around them; and a pair of cops at a roadblock are pointing guns at Cassidy, who is protecting himself from the sun with an umbrella.
The expanded second season, consisting of 13 episodes, is a genre-bending thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
Preacher season two stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, and new additions Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones), Pip Torrens (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, My Week with Marilyn), Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul, Fargo), Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People), Justin Prentice (13 Reasons Why, Awkward) and Ronald Guttman (Mozart in the Jungle, Mad Men).
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbors 2, Superbad) and showrunner Catlin (Breaking Bad). The series is executive produced by Catlin, as well as Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter and Ken F. Levin.
