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.

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.

Rose Byrne may have started off in dramatic roles on the big and small screen, but with Nick Stoller’s Get Him to the Greek and Paul Feig’s Bridesmaids, the Australian actress quickly established her comedic voice. The first Neighbors gave Byrne her funniest role yet in Kelly, a character who refreshingly challenged stereotypes of wives and mothers in major comedies. And in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Byrne reminds us once again why she should add more comedies to her resume.

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.

More Comedies Should Be As Progressive About Feminism and Gay Relationships As ‘Neighbors 2'

Despite how much of a refreshing surprise the first ‘Neighbors’ was, I’ll admit I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the sequel, which looked dispensable and derivative. The poster and trailer for ‘Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising’ made it clear that Nick Stoller’s sequel to the 2014 Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne comedy was simply replicating the original premise and gender-swapping it to raise the stakes. It seemed like the expected set-up for a movie to stereotype and villainize young women, ridicule and dumb them down for laughs, and subject them to dick jokes. But it turns out ‘Neighbors 2' is a more pleasant surprise than the first movie. Not only is it one of the best and funniest comedy sequels, but the most feminist, self-aware and gay-inclusive mainstream comedy of the year, if not ever.
