Perhaps no TV panel at Comic-Con is ever so anticipated as The Walking Dead, but doubly so for 2016, to gain any insight into Negan’s victim by a first trailer. We’ll find out, as AMC has officially booked The Walking Dead, its Fear-ful companion and Preacher for the big show in San Diego this year.
If the unilateral praise for AMC’s Preacher weren’t enough to guarantee a second season, certainly its wealth of talent and AMC’s bare-bones slate would guarantee it a spot, right? Either way, consider Preacher Jesse Custer officially booked to spread the word of God for Season 2, and this time with a longer mass.
Sunday’s newest episode of Preacher introduced us to one of the AMC comic drama’s leading antagonists in the form of Jackie Earle Haley’s Odin Quincannon, but at least a few fans were left scratching their head at the absence of other Quincannons from early casting. Now, boss Sam Catlin confirms that Elizabeth Perkins and Lucas Neff’s roles were cut from the series, despite a brief pilot appearance.
You may have heard of a little television program AMC has been enthusiastic of promoting, titled Preacher. We’ve even talked about it once or twice, spoken to slightly-recognizable cast and creators. AMC would like you to watch this television program, and have now provided a commercial-free streaming link with which to do so. Please, watch Preacher.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may have succeeded against odds in bringing Garth Ennis classic Preacher to life on AMC, but can lightning strike twice to bring the artist’s superhero-smashing The Boys to Cinemax? A new interview sees Rogen on the decision to attack the superhero world (with or without Simon Pegg’s help), while Ennis says “Sick of superheroes? Because we are.”
The comedic talents of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg may not always have a guiding hand in AMC’s Preacher, though the pilot more than carried some visceral influence. If you don’t believe us, take it from pair themselves, as AMC released the Preacher pilot with Rogen and Goldberg’s commentary!
In the wrong hands, AMC’s ‘Preacher’ could have been a bloated mess.
The gag itself made headlines months ago at SXSW, but that didn’t stop Preacher fans from a shocked chortle at Tom Cruise’s explosive cameo in the AMC comic drama’s premiere. We’ve heard a bit of Cruise’s reaction, but now Preacher bosses explain the bizarre bit, while AMC releases new sneak peeks of the show’s June 5 return “See.”
AMC’s Preacher has been in development long enough that executive producer Seth Rogen once sought to audition for Arseface in a different production, and everything appears to have come full circle. Not only did Rogen make his own Preacher, the Neighbors 2 star made his own Preacher of his own Preacher, recreating the trailer with himself starring in every role.
Debuting its first episode in less than a week, AMC’s Preacher has managed to keep a majority of its supernatural bent under wraps, but gets far weirder by its very first scene. See for yourself, as the first four-minute opening scene has arrived, taking us far from God’s country at first, but not without a bit of toilet humor.
