As "Preacher" looks toward its second season, the hit AMC drama has added six new faces to its ensemble cast.
Deadline reports Noah Taylor ("Game of Thrones"), Pip Torrens ("The Crown") and Julie Ann Emery ("Fargo" have signed on to be series regulars, while Malcolm Barrett ("Dear White People"), Justin Prentice ("Homeland") and Ronald Guttman ("13 Reasons Why") will have recurring roles. No details have been revealed about their characters.
Based on the acclaimed Vertigo comics series by Garth Ennis and the late Steve Dillon, “Preacher” tells the story of a West Texas minister named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) who finds himself inhabited by the renegade spawn of an angel and demon. With Jesse now able to control people with just a word, all hell breaks loose as events quickly spiral out of control.
Season Two will follow Jesse, Tulip (Ruth Negga) and the Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) on their road trip to find God. Bizarre shenanigans will ensue.
The AMC series comes from executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Caitlin. No premiere date has been announced, but expect to see AMC’s second season of “Preacher” in mid-2017.
