Preacher Season 3 is now airing on AMC. The show stars Dominic Cooper as a preacher turned criminal named Jesse Custer, Ruth Negga as the outlaw Tulip, and Joseph Gilgun as the Irish vampire Cassidy. Together, they’re on a road trip across the United States to find God, who’s gone missing from Heaven.
Last season saw the trio of Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy leave their West Texas town, which was completely destroyed, and travel to New Orleans, the last known whereabouts of God, who happens to be a really big fan of jazz. This season, the quest will lead to trio to a Louisiana plantation called Angelville, the place where Jesse was raised, which he’s been avoiding his whole life. Of course, still on their tail is the Saint of Killers, the Angel of Death hired to collect their heads.

Preacher Season 3 Trailer
The first proper Preacher Season 3 trailer is here!
While a lot the reveals here were teased in a still-fresh behind-the-scenes featurette, the Preacher Season 3 trailer does provide the first look at Gran’ma (Betty Buckley), the spellcasting matron of Jesse’s former family, who appears willing to help heal Tulip, likely for a price that, for Jesse, is far costlier than currency. We are also treated to plenty of punch-happy footage of Jody (Jesse Childs), a belligerent figure from Jesse’s childhood.
Here’s a new Preacher Season 3 behind-the-scenes featurette, which provides loads of new footage and a glance at some of the new characters.
As executive producer Michael Slovis explains of the tone for Preacher Season 3:
“What were going for this season was to enhance what we’ve already started; keep the action going, keep the comedy going.”
Indeed, cast members Dominic Cooper and Joseph Gilgun affirm that the series is upping the ante in terms of irreverent ultraviolence. It should make for a marvelous season as Preacher looks to adapt the “Until the End of the World” comic book storyline, while pushing further down its wacky rabbit hole of debauchery and mysticism.
…And here’s the first Preacher Season 3 teaser trailer, which arrived back in late-May.
Preacher Season 3 Cast
Check out the new cast members and their official descriptions.
Betty Buckley will play Gran’ma, “A spiritist with true powers, who can cast spells and even bring back the dead (for a price). Pay the fee or pay with your soul to feed Gran’ma’s thirst for eternal youth. She is weathered, tough, and mean, but also intelligent beyond measure. She’s Jesse’s only living family and she loves him.”
Colin Cunningham is TC, “A man born of the bayou and the loyal caretaker and soldier for Gran’ma. Weasely and wiry, he’ll gladly tell you about his perversions whether you ask him or not. While he seems like the friendliest guy you’ll ever meet, don’t make the mistake of turning your back on him.”
Jeremy Childs is Jody, “Massive and intimidating, Jody emanates danger. He’s the enforcer for Gran’ma and the only man Jesse’s never beaten in a fight. He’s nobody’s fool, and not someone to cross.”
Liz McGeever will play Christina, “Capable and efficient, Christina has a face that lures customers in for her family business. Christina hides it well, but she hates her job and has dreams and aspirations outside of her current life – but suffers to protect her child.”
Adam Crosadell (Reign) will be Eccarius, “a 350-year-old vampire who bears wisdom and has an air of aristocracy. Regal and charming, he styles himself after the more romantic, Gothic images of vampires. Appearing as a cliche at first, Eccarius is a much darker figure beneath the surface.”
Prema Cruz (Mozart in the Jungle) is playing Madame Boyd, who is a tough forward thinker: educated and attractive, she intends to take the family business into the modern age — by any means necessary.”
There there is, and this is a big one, Jonny Coyne as “Allfather D’Aronique.” Google images of this character at your own peril.
Preacher Season 3 Story
It looks like Preacher Season 3 will adapt the “Until the End of the World” arc, which was the second volume of the comic series.
As the latest official synopsis reads:
In Season 3, Jesse Custer’s quest for God 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.
Here’s the previous official synopsis:
Picking up where Season 2 left off, Season 3 sees Jesse, Cassidy and Tulip return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised and where 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.
Preacher Season 3 Photos
The latest Preacher Season 3 photos (via Collider,) provide the first look at a crucial character in the bellicose bully, Jody, played by Jeremy Childs (Nashville, The Committee).
With Season 3 taking Jesse back to his roots in Angelville, he will be forced to face demons from his past (as opposed to actual demons,) most notably, Jody, an enforcer for the ruthless Gran’ma (Betty Buckley). Jody was a crucial figure during Jesse’s childhood, serving as a consistent tormentor, whose abuse seemed to be motivated by a desire to toughen him up. Of course, that kind of behavior has only magnified in Jody, who has become a dangerous person as an adult, and the upcoming reunion with Jesse could be better described as a collision course.
And check out Jesse, Tulip, as well as a returning Herr Starr (Pip Torrens), leader of the white-clad cabal, Grail.
