AMC’s announced a Sunday, June 24, 2018 premiere date for the third season of Preacher and the network’s released the first three official photos from the upcoming season. The trippy series based on the popular comic book series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as Tulip, and Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy.
The season three cast will also feature returning cast members Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Malcolm Barrett. Betty Buckley (Supergirl, Split) and Colin Cunningham (Blood Drive, Falling Skies) join the cast as season three regulars. In addition, Jeremy Childs (The Last Castle, Nashville), Liz McGreever (Star, Nashville), Jonny Coyne (Turn, Alcatraz), Adam Croasdell (Reign), and Prema Cruz (Mozart in the Jungle) will be recurring as guest stars.
Season three will consist of 10 one-hour episodes and will air on Sundays at 10pm ET/PT. Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad) developed the series for television and serve as executive producers. James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz, Ori Marmur, Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair and Ken F. Levin also executive produce the adult drama.
The Plot: Preacher is a supernatural, twisted and darkly comedic drama that follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer, who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that causes him to develop a highly unusual power. Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip and an Irish vagabond named Cassidy come together, and when they do, they are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
In Season 3, Jesse Custer’s quest for God takes him back to the place he’s been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past… because the future of the world depends on it.
