Preacher Renewed for Expanded Second Season on AMC


NEW YORK: AMC is bringing back its original supernatural series Preacher, based on a comic-book franchise, for an expanded 13-episode second season.

Season two of the Sony Pictures Television-AMC Studios co-production will debut in 2017. The show is currently averaging 3.3 million viewers per episode on AMC and is the number two new series on cable this year among adults 18 to 49 and 25 to 54.

Preacher was developed for TV by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is The End, Superbad, Neighbors) and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).

Preacher is a special television program and we’re eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season,” said Charlie Collier, the president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis’s graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters, be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond.”
