Hell hath no fury like a West Texas preacher, his badass ex-girlfriend and an Irish vampire embarking on a journey to find God. Dominic Cooper returns as Jesse Custer, a former disillusioned preacher, with Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga as his ex, Tulip, and Joseph Gilgun as the vampire Cassidy for ten new episodes of Preacher.
According to AMC’s announcement on Monday, season three follows Jesse on his continuing quest to find God, which takes him back to the small plantation where he grew up in Louisiana. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy arrive in Angelville, where old grudges and dangerous obligations await them. Jesse is going to have to escape his past in order for the world to actually have a future.
