SEASON AVERAGED 3.0 MILLION VIEWERS PER EPISODE, INCLUDING 1.7 MILLION ADULTS 25-54 (LIVE+3)

SEASON FINALE DELIVERED 3.1 MILLION VIEWERS, INCLUDING 1.7 MILLION ADULTS 25-54

ALL 10 EPISODES OF SEASON ONE NOW AVAILABLE ON AMC.COM FOR A SUMMER BINGE - FANS CAN RELIVE THEIR FAVORITE MOMENTS OR GET CAUGHT UP IN ANTICIPATION OF NEXT YEAR'S SECOND SEASON

NEW YORK, NY, August 5, 2016 - "Preacher" on Sunday ended a first season that solidified the series as a top 10 cable drama and the #2 new cable drama of 2016 among adults 25-54. The initial season of 10 episodes averaged 3.0 million viewers per episode, including 1.7 million adults 25-54. Sunday's finale delivered 3.1 million viewers, including 1.7 million adults 25-54.

The series will return for a second season next year and all 10 episodes of season one are currently available on AMC.com for the next two months as a summer binge for fans who want to relive favorite moments and episodes, catch up in anticipation of season two or just watch from start to finish. Over the course of the season, Preacher episodes were watched 2.4 million times online through AMC.com and other authenticated digital platforms, in addition to the linear viewership.

"When we announced plans for a TV adaptation of the iconic comic book 'Preacher,' the most consistent reaction - often, even, from existing fans - was, 'There's no way to do that story on television.' Thanks to the vision, passion, smarts and guts of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Sam Catlin and the entire team on this show, we have just concluded a season of television that looks like nothing else I have ever seen on television," said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. "Huge thanks and well done to the trio of Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, who are now leading a road trip unlike any other. And, of course, thank you again to our partners at Sony Pictures Television, Tom Cruise, and the creators of 'Preacher,' Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the latter simply for being so damned crazy in the first place. It is the time of the Preacher, and the story really has just begun."
