It has been finally announced by Seth Rogen that Preacher will return for its final season on the AMC network, starting August 4. This came out yesterday during the AMC summit event. The renewal for Preacher was announced in November by AMC. However, this upcoming season is confirmed to be the last for Preacher. The series is based on a comic book series by Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis. It follows an unconventional Preacher named Jesse Custer who becomes possessed with powers that rival that of the divine. He then sets on a journey to find God, who is now missing from Heaven, to hold him accountable for whatever has happened to the mortals.

‘Preacher’ Season 4 to Be Final Season Of Series
“Preacher is a show unlike any other on television,” said AMC Networks president of programming of entertainment networks David Madden when the show’s fourth season was announced. “A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy and have followed along with their adventures, at times indescribable adventures, for three seasons. We are thankful to our partners at Sony and to Seth, Evan and Sam for everything they have brought to this series, which we are pleased to renew for a fourth season. Like the superfans of Preacher, we can’t wait to see where this journey leads next.”
Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Ian Colletti, Graham McTravish, Pip Torrens, Noah Taylor, Tyson Ritter and Julie Ann Emery. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg developed the series. The first season was filmed in New Mexico while the second and third in New Orleans. The filming of the final season will take place in Australia.
‘Preacher’ Season 4: What’s in store?
Towards the end of season three, Angelville is left by Jesse and Cassidy is taken by Grail as hostage. This may set up for a major showdown between Grail and Jesse, just like the comics, however, Rogen won’t hesitate to alter things a bit from the source material.
“When you see in the comic books this spooky house in the Bayou somewhere you don’t ask a lot of questions,” series creator Seth Rogen previously explained. “But like as soon as it’s brought into the real world you’re like ‘What do these people do? What do they do all day? What is this? Do they have dogs? Do they hike? How does this work?’ As soon as we started having this conversation we realized that there was actually a lot of opportunities to build out the mythology of Angelville and what they actually do. What the purpose of it is and whether or not other people do the same thing and how they knew those people.”
