‘Preacher’ Showrunner Promises ‘All Sorts Of Crazy Characters’, Including Herr Starr In Season 2

Preacher Season 2

Preacher season two is fast approaching. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Sam Catlin teased some new “crazy characters” that will be appearing this season. They’ll be appearing alongside all of the returning characters.

“We bring in all sorts of crazy characters from the comic that we had to really restrain ourselves from bringing in too early in season 1. So that’s been a lot of fun.”

One of the characters that will be included in the show’s second season will be the German villain, Herr Starr. Starr is in charge of the organization called The Grail and will be wreaking some havoc for Jesse and his friends.

“He’ll be a big part of the season and he’ll be a big part of Jesse’s life going forward. That was a character that, as soon as I read the comic the first time, I loved him so much. Obviously, we couldn’t wait to bring him out and give him his due.”

Starr will be played by The Crown actor Pip Torrens and Sam Catlin praised the actor.

“He was born to play the role. I don’t know quite what that says about Pip, but he’s amazing.”

Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga. Below is the season’s official synopsis.

Preacher follows a West Texas preacher named Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), who is inhabited by the renegade spawn of an angel and demon and gains the power to control people with just a word. The series’ second season returns this summer and follows Jesse, 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, dealing with issues both worldly and other-worldly along the way.

Preacher season two will be premiering on Sunday, June 25 at 9/8c on AMC.
