The third series of AMC’s Preacher will debut in the UK on Amazon’s Prime Video this June, with the streaming service confirming the first episode will launch on Monday 25th June and new episodes following weekly.
Based on the popular cult comic book franchise, Preacher tells the absurdly twisted tale of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a small-town preacher inhabited by an angel-demon spawn that gives him the power to make people do his bidding, Tulip (Ruth Negga), his volatile true love, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), a 119-year-old Irish vampire.
In series two, after Jesse accidentally discovered that God is absent from Heaven, the three of them set out on a road trip to find Him, all while being hunted by the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), an unstoppable, mythical killer from Hell.
The trio’s pursuit led them to New Orleans, where they dodged local gangsters, dangerous agents, and other unimaginable mayhem on their way to uncovering an even bigger secret. Now, with Tulip’s life and Cassidy’s friendship in the balance, Jesse must rely on a mysterious figure from his past in order to save his friends and continue on with his mission.
The new 10 episodes seriesis inspired by the second volume of the comic book franchise, Until the End of the World.
The Sony Pictures Television and AMC Studios co-production was developed for television by Seth Rogen (Bad Neighbours, 22 Jump Street), Evan Goldberg (Sausage Party, Neighbours 2, Superbad) and showrunner Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad).
Amazon Prime Video can be accessed on selected Smart TVs, via smartphone and tablet apps and via Amazon’s Fire TV stick and Fire TV and is free to Amazon Prime customers.
