Preacher Season 3 kicks off production in New Orleans

I'm a bad PREACHER fan. I'm into the comics but I have been seriously slacking on my viewing of the TV series. That said, I plan to catch up before the third season airs. And speaking of the third season, not only do we have news today that the third season of AMC's PREACHER TV series has begun production in New Orleans, but the new season is all set to premiere later this year.

On top of that we have learned today via Deadline that Betty Buckley (Supergirl, Split) and Colin Cunningham (Blood Drive, Falling Skies) have been cast as series regulars for season three, and Jeremy Childs (The Last Castle, Nashville) and Liz McGeever (Star, Nashville) have also been cast as recurring characters.

Below you will find some quick character rundowns for the new cast, and then after looking through all of that make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for the upcoming third season of AMC's PREACHER in the comments below or on social media.

Buckley will play Gran’ma, "a spiritist with true powers, who can cast spells and even bring back the dead (for a price)." Cunningham will portray TC, "a man born of the bayou and the loyal caretaker and soldier for Gran’ma."  Childs is Jody, "the enforcer for Gran’ma and the only man Jesse’s never beaten in a fight." And 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."


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 premieres 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 otherworldly along the way.

PREACHER comes to us from executive producers Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Julie Ann Emery, Noah Taylor, Pip Torrens, Lucy Griffiths, and W. Earl Brown.

Preacher returns to AMC later this year.
