AMC’s Preacher will be coming back for a fourth season. The network announced the renewal of the supernatural series along with the news that production will begin early next year in Australia.
The series is based of the Vertigo comic of the same name created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. It follows Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a Texas priest who is literally trying to find God with the help of his e-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). Together they are caught in the middle of a war raging between Heaven and Hell and other demonic forces.
“Preacher is a show unlike any other on television, said David Madden, President – Programming, Entertainment Networks, AMC Networks. “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. 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.”
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.
