Preacher Season 2: The Road Trip Begins

As all readers of Preacher comic book know, this story is, after all, a crazy road trip in its form. This was not at all present in the first season of the adaptation proposed by AMC last summer. Nevertheless, Preacher Season 2 trip begins this Sunday on the American chain with an episode with the name On The Road.

As a reminder, the first season of Preacher was held in Annville, Texas, where Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) found himself owned by Genesis, an entity endowing him with powers. He then decided to give life back to his church, but it did not turn out as he hoped. Now, along with his girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and the vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), Jesse takes the road and sets off in search of God.

For the trio, things are not going to be simple, since they are pursued by the Holy Killers and by the members of the Grail, a secret organization that wants to use the power of Genesis to realize its plans.

On the casting side, Preacher Season 2 welcomes Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders), Pip Torrens (Poldark, The Crown) and Julie Ann Emery (Major Crimes, Better Call Saul) in regular roles. Malcolm Barrett (Timeless), Ronald Guttman and Justin Prentice (Awkward) have been announced as recurring.

AMC teams have taken their bags from the American comic book of the same name created by Garth Ennis (screenplay) and Steve Dillon (drawing). The second season was filmed in Louisiana. Preacher is developed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg with producer Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).

I've never been hooked by the universe of horror. The film that impressed me most in this style was Alien, which really cramped me up. On the other hand, I liked Spiderman and I read Preacher well before being called on this series. The comics of my time were really very different from this.
