Get ready Preacher faithful (or is it faithless?), AMC’s Preacher has been renewed for a third season, according to executive producer Seth Rogen.

Preacher Season 3 Renewal

Rogen tweeted the announcement earlier today, and a blog post on the official site for the series confirmed that it will be returning in 2018, though no other details are available at this time.  The announcement is an answered prayer for fans, particularly with the season two finale ending in a cliff-hanger (read about the most recent episode here, but only if you’re willing to accept spoilers into your heart).

Preacher follows Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) – a criminal-turned-preacher with the power to control people’s minds through his voice, Tulip O’Hare (Ruth Negga) – a criminal-turned-well, criminal with the ability to turn just about anything in reach into a deadly weapon, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) – a vampire-turned-drug addict with the ability to make any day a party, on their quest to find God.  Through two seasons, they have persevered in the face of a reincarnated cowboy killing machine (the Saint of Killers, played by Graham McTavish), a kind-hearted boy with the face of an arse (Eugene, played by Ian Colletti), and the world’s most powerful organization, led by the ruthless Herr Starr (Pip Torrens), a man with a taste for global domination and sodomy.  But can they survive Jesse’s grandmother?  We’ll find out in season three, God (and the Grail) willing.

Preacher airs on AMC and was created by Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen.  It is based the comic book series (also titled Preacher), created by Garth Ennis and the late Steve Dillon.
