A road trip with Jesse Custer, Tulip O’Hare and Cassidy may be many things, but it will never, ever be boring.
AMC has released the first teaser for the second season of “Preacher,” filled with car chases, gunfire, explosions, and Dexys Midnight Runners’ “Come On Eileen.” “It’s a good song,” Cassidy insists.
Based on the acclaimed Vertigo comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, hit drama returns for its 13-episode second season on Sunday, June 25, a change from the announcement made just last month. AMC previously indicated “Preacher” would return on Monday, June 19.
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.
