AMC has released a new preview for Preacher Season 2, which takes fans behind-the-scenes while production gets under way. This preview features brand new footage from the set, plus interview snippets from star Dominic Cooper, who reveals how excited he is to have executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg directing episodes in this new season. We also hear from Joseph Gilgun, and get a look at some of the stunt filming, where we see a talented stunt driver maneuver a car up on two wheels, to go around a huge dirt pile, before bringing the car back to all four wheels safely.
This video from AMC also features interview segments with Ruth Negga, who talks about how exciting it is to see where this epic road trip will take these characters. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were also on hand to discuss the action, with the directors and executive producers revealing how they approach action different than other shows, because Preacher himself has the ability to pull off some "really unique action." Seth Rogen also teases that their action scenes have more of a sense of "insanity and mayhem," when compared to other action shows.
Domninic Cooper teases that this unique blend of action and a "macabre sense of humor" is what will draw fans to watch Preacher. Ruth Negga also reveals that this season is being filmed in New Orleans, a city which is a big part of the original comics by Garth Ennis. The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbors 2, Superbad) and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad). The series is executive produced by Catlin, as well as Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver for Point Grey Pictures, Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur for Original Film and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Ken F. Levin, Michael Slovis and the author of the Preacher graphic novel, Garth Ennis.
Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is an absurdly twisted and action packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer, a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip, Jesse's volatile true love, and Cassidy, a 119 year old Irish vampire and Jesse's best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable killer cowboy from Hell.
Preacher season two stars Cooper, Negga, Gilgun, Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, and new additions Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones), Pip Torrens (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, My Week with Marilyn), Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul, Fargo), Malcolm Barrett (Dear White People), Justin Prentice (13 Reasons Why, Awkward) and Ronald Guttman (Mozart in the Jungle, Mad Men).
