The upcoming fourth season of AMC's Preacher will also be its last.
Co-creator Seth Rogen announced the news in a video teaser posted to his Twitter page. The simple, yet stylized video prominently displays the Preacher title card, followed by an explosion and the declaration, "The end is now." Then, the title card returns to confirm that the show's fourth season will mark the end of the series. The teaser also reveals that Preacher Season 4 will debut on Aug. 4.
Based on the DC/Vertigo comic book series of the same name by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher debuted on AMC in May 2016.
The series was officially renewed for Season 4 late last year, with AMC Networks entertainment programming president David Madden saying, "We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan [Goldberg] and Sam [Catlin] for everything they have brought to this series, which we are pleased to renew for a fourth season. Like the superfans of Preacher, we can’t wait to see where this journey leads next."
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip and Joe Gilgun as Cassidy the Vampire, Pip Torrens as Herr Starr, Malcom Barrett as Hoover and Julie Anne Emery as Featherstone. Betty Buckley (Gran’ma), Colin Cunningham (T.C.), Jeremy Childs (Jody) and Jonny Coyne (Allfather D’Aronique) also appear. The series returns for its fourth and final season on Aug. 4.
