In Season One, AMC’s Preacher gave viewers a taste of the carnage that’s so prevalent in the comic book source material. However, Season Two will look to up the ante by delivering more gore and bloodshed that could very well rival the network’s tentpole series The Walking Dead.
In an interview with TV Guide, star Dominic Cooper, who plays the series protagonist Jesse Custer, commented on the gruesome nature of the upcoming season, as well as what viewers can expect in terms of action sequences.
“It gets more and more gory,” he said. “There are some wonderfully choreographed episodes, where I had to learn a much more complex series of fight routines. … It gets worse and worse in a good way. There are a lot of intestines.”
Saint of Killers actor Graham McTavish also chimed in about Season Two, which he believes will put a fresh spin on character deaths in the series.
“It is extreme, a lot of the things that happen to people,” he said. “And the way that people die in Preacher — it’s not just sort of boring, conventional ways people would die normally in a show. It’s quite creative, and my character particularly finds interesting ways to deal with people with his various weapons and his bare hands.”
Based on the groundbreaking Vertigo series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher follows the exploits of the aforementioned Jesse Custer – a wayward preacher with the otherwordly ability to make others do his bidding with just a word – on quest to track down God who has left the throne of Heaven and is wandering the Earth. Jesse is joined on his hunt by his gun-toting ex-girlfriend Tulip and a rakish Irish vampire named Cassidy.
Preacher Season Two premieres on Sunday, June 25, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on AMC, followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26, at 9 p.m. in what will be the show’s regular night and time slot.
