‘Preacher’: Dominic Cooper On Jesse & How He’s ‘More Solidified’ In Season 2


Preacher season two is almost upon us and lead star, Dominic Cooper, recently chatted with ComicBook.com and discussed Jesse’s journey and how in season two he’s “more solidified.”

“I think he is more solidified. He has a very, very particular focus. And if you’re not with him on that journey then he’s not really that interested.”

In Preacher’s first season, Jesse was on the fence about a lot of things. Whether it was his faith, himself, his abilities as a preacher or what have you.

“He was really struggling with an identity then. With what he wanted to be. What people expected him to be. What his father wanted him to be. This guilt that he was harboring. Now, he thinks he’s doing what’s best for the world. For mankind. How delusional that may seem. There’s something he gives away that he can’t ever get back. And that’s probably the beginning again, of the next phase of inner destruction and self-hatred that will occur.”

The show 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 10/9c on AMC.
