With less than six weeks to go before Jesse's series-long sermon from "The Book of Genesis" comes to an apocalyptic end with its upcoming fourth and final season, AMC's adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's comic book series Preacher hasn't really offered us much up to this point – and we'll admit that we were getting on the cabler a little bit about it.
Well, someone's been listening because we'be got a brand new teaser ("Jesus") and season key art that gives us a better sense of just how insane Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Cassidy's (Joseph Gilgun) final run is going to be – and how this seems to be part of doG's (Mark Harelik) plan…?!?!?
We're not buyin' it…
As the series inches closer to the finale, God's endgame for the universe begins to click into place. Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time — or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan — will soon be revealed as "Preacher" barrels towards the end of the world.
A Look Ahead to AMC's "Preacher" Season 4
Here's what we do know about the end-of-the-world madness that awaits us when Preacher returns to AMC on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at 9 p.m. ET., including the initial announcement video of the show's return as well as a teaser overview of the upcoming season:
AMC's Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, along with series regulars Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Noah Taylor.
When we last left The Saint of Killers (McTavish), he was marching out of Hell and heading straight for a showdown with Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy. Doing his best Lone Wolf and Cub homage with a still-brooding-over-being-in-Hell-for-no-reason Arseface (Colletti) in tow, The Saint is looking to engage in a high-body-count airing of grievances – and if even Satan himself couldn't stop the cursed gunslinger, what chance does even a Genesis-fueled Jesse have?
Except that Jesse and Tulip are on their way to save a captured Cassidy from the clutches of a now feeling very scorned Herr Starr (Torrens) and the unholy might of The Grail.
Joining the cast during the final season as a series regular is actor/musician Ritter, frontman for The All American Rejects – but in this universe, we know him better for his will dual role of Jesus Christ and modern messiah-wannabe Humperdoo, previously appearing in five episodes in a recurring role.
Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo comic book series from Ennis and Dillon, Preacher follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer, his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip, and an Irish vampire named Cassidy as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
Preacher is a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios, and developed for television by Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and series showrunner Sam Catlin. Catlin, Rogen, Goldberg and James Weaver executive produce for Point Grey Pictures. Original Film's Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur and Vivian Cannon, Jason Netter, Michael Slovis, Mark McNair, and Ken F. Levin also serve as executive producers.
