Jesse and company are sticking around for a bit longer, as AMC has officially ordered a fourth season of Preacher.
The news was announced earlier today, with David Madden, entertainment programming president at AMC Networks, dubbing the show one "unlike any other on television." The show, which first premiered back in 2016, has been a critical darling for the most part, although the series has never quite achieved the ratings of fellow AMC series The Walking Dead or Breaking Bad. Still, the network remains confident in its product and is well aware of the show's passionate fanbase that continues to tune in with each new season.
"A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy and have followed along with their adventures, at times indescribable adventures, for three seasons," Madden said via a press release. "We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan and Sam 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."
The news comes a day after producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg revealed they would be re-teaming on an adaption of the novel Console Wars by author Blake J. Harris. While that project isn't currently attached to a network, Kong director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is set to helm the limited series, with the pilot script having been written by Mike Rosolio (American Vandal).
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 join the cast.
