The show, which airs in the UK on Amazon, is scoring well with the key 18-49 demographic, although there have been multiple comments on its pacing.
“Preacher is a special television program and we’re eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season,” Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios said. “What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis’ graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond.”
Preacher was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and showrunner Sam Catlin. It stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
