Our prayers have been answered! The drama’s producers have now filed paperwork to AMC for filming and are awaiting the network to officially green-light the series for a season 3 renewal, a decision we believe will be positive, especially due to Preacher’s viewing figures and high ratings. This is the first (and biggest) step to an official season 3 renewal.

Each episode in season 2 so far has averaged 1.2 Million viewers in the US, these are outstanding viewing figures which would easily accelerate AMC’s decision to merit a renewal.

Preacher Season 3 production is slated to begin early 2018, for a summer 2018 release. The new season would be shot on an estimated budget of $70 million, up slightly from the $67 million estimated for the 13-episode Season 2, the state filing shows. An estimated $50 million of that Season 3 budget would be spent in Louisiana, with $19 million of that earmarked for in-state payroll.

PREACHER is based on the supernatural comics of the same name published by DC imprint Vertigo in the 1990s. The story follows Jesse Custer [Dominic Cooper], who returns home to West Texas to take over his dad’s church. Jesse’s mission, however, becomes twisted when his body is overcome by a cryptic force that unleashes within him a highly unconventional power. Together with hell-raising ex-girlfriend Tulip and Irish vagabond Cassidy, the preacher-in-training embarks on a journey to find God in a world inhabited by holy, hellish, and everything-in-between characters.
