AMC Will Marathon The First Five Episodes Of The Current First Season On Thursday, June 30 - Heading Into A New Episode This Sunday

NEW YORK, NY - June 29, 2016 - AMC today announced that it has renewed its cinematic and critically acclaimed supernatural series "Preacher" for an expanded 13-episode second season, slated for 2017. The Sony Pictures Television-AMC Studios co-production is the #2 new series on cable this year among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 and is currently averaging 3.3 million viewers per episode, including 1.9 million adults 25-54, in Nielsen live+3 ratings.

"'Preacher' is a special television program and we're eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis' graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond."

This Thursday night, AMC will air a "Preacher" catch-up/DVR marathon of the first five episodes of the current season, starting at 9:00 p.m. and running through 2:35 a.m. Friday morning. The sixth episode appears on AMC this Sunday in the show's regular timeslot at 9:00 p.m.

Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, "Preacher" is a supernatural and darkly comedic drama that follows a Texas preacher named Jesse Custer who is inhabited by a mysterious entity called Genesis that gives him the power to make people do whatever he commands. Once this power attracts the attention of two mysterious angels, Fiore and DeBlanc, Jesse, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy are thrust into a crazy world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

"Preacher" was developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg ("This is The End," "Superbad," "Neighbors") and showrunner Sam Catlin ("Breaking Bad").

The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, Joseph Gilgun as Cassidy, Ruth Negga as Tulip, Lucy Griffiths as Emily, W. Earl Brown as Sheriff Root, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck and Ian Colletti as Eugene/Arseface.
