AMC PREACHER Season 2 Confirmed for 13 Episodes

AMC’s Preacher Season 2 is officially greenlit for a full 13-episodes. Season 2 of Preacher will premiere in 2017, still too early for a definite premiere date. I am enjoying Season 1 of Preacher currently and cannot wait to see each episode.

Press Release: NEW YORK, NY - June 29, 2016 - AMC today announced that it has renewed its cinematic and critically acclaimed supernatural series "Preacher" for an expanded 13-episode second season, slated for 2017.
