"'Preacher' is a show unlike any other on television. A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy and have followed along with their adventures, at times indescribable adventures, for three seasons. We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan and Sam for everything they have brought to this series, which we are pleased to renew for a fourth season. Like the superfans of Preacher, we can't wait to see where this journey leads next."

– David Madden, President of Programming-Entertainment, AMC Networks

Based on the DC Comics/Vertigo comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, Preacher follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga), and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between. Joining Cooper, Negga, and Gilgun are Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, and Julie Ann Emery.

Preacher is a co-production between Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios, and developed for television by Rogen, 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.

PREACHER is a dramatic thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.

The 10-episode third season follows Jesse's quest for God which takes him back to the place he's been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past…because the future of the world depends on it.
