AMC’s Preacher will continue with the second season and Seth Rogen, executive producer of Preacher, is hinting that production could be starting very soon. Rogen took to Twitter and posted a picture of the script from “On The Road,” the first episode in season two.
“Very excited to get started on season 2 of #Preacher for about a million reasons,” tweeted Rogen.

No official release date has been set for season two but it has been indicated that Herr Starr will be playing a factor in the second season. The freshman series, adapted from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon’s graphic novel of the same name and developed for TV by Sam Catlin, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, became one of the wildest, weirdest and goofiest TV shows to ever hit televisions, and they’ve been rewarded for their insanity. In addition to getting a 13-episode second season, they’ve officially become the second highest new cable drama in 2016, behind FX’s equally captivating American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC, had the following to say about the exciting news.
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.
In the meantime, if you’re not caught up on Preacher, all 10 episodes are now available on AMC.com — at least for the time being.
