Killing season begins when Preacher returns to televisions on AMC next month and the network is gearing up for a bloody premiere.
AMC released a new trailer teasing some key scenes for Preacher’s second season, including the terrifying Saint of Killers unleashed to destroy the abomination spawned of Good and Evil.
The clip shows Graham McTavish’s The Saint of Killers on a warpath, cut with scenes Jesse and Cassidy humorously referring to the character as a “reoccurring” threat. Ruth Negga’s Tulip also stars, refusing Jesse’s attempts to drive her car.
Dominic Cooper’s Jesse gets some good screen time in, showcasing his hand-to-hand combat abilities as he takes on some white-suited thugs and a guy with a machete. Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy tries to heat things up with a blow torch. And the Saint of Killers smashes an armless guy through the glass of a vending machine.
Basically, it’s time for more of the violent and heretical fun that only Preacher can provide.
The second season looks to build off of the “origin” story from the first year’s episodes, putting Jesse on the path he’s taking in the original comic series now that the context has been established. Jesse is on a mission to find God, quite literally, and there are going to be a ton of bodies littered on the path when they’re done.
Preacher returns with an episode called “On The Road” premiering June 25.
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.
