While the first teaser for the second season of Preacher prominently featured Dexys Midnight Runners’ “Come On Eileen,” this latest promo is dominated by another 1980s hit: Ton Basil’s “Mickey.” Oh, and the Saint of Killers, of course.
In the 30-second spot, Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare and Cassidy have a serious problem that they’re looking to take care of, and quickly. “Someone’s after us,” Dominic Cooper’s Jesse explains. “We don’t know how to get rid of him.”
That someone is a seemingly unstoppable bounty hunter with god-like powers (played by Graham McTavish) who’s set his sights on Jesse. “He’s a beast straight out of hell,” we’re told. And if we’re left with any doubts, a montage of the Saint of Killers in action will undoubtedly take care of them.
Based on the acclaimed Vertigo comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, hit AMC drama returns for its 13-episode second season on Sunday, June 25. Developed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen and Sam Catlin, Preacher combines elements of the supernatural with dark, twisted humor to tell the story of Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), whose body is inhabited by a mysterious entity, imbuing him with the ability to make other do his bidding with just a word.
Cooper is joined by Joseph Gilgun as Irish vampire Cassidy, Jesse’s best friend; Ruth Negga as Tulip O’Hare, Jesse’s gun-toting ex-girlfriend; Lucy Griffiths as waitress Emily Woodrow, Jesse’s loyal right hand; Ian Colletti as Eugene Root, aka Arseface; W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Hugo Root; Tom Brooke and Anatol Yusef as the Adelphia angels Fiore and DeBlanc; and Graham McTavish as the bounty hunter The Saint of Killers.
