Netflix might have cancelled ‘Daredevil’, but at least one other comic book-based series is sticking around. AMC has officially renewed the controversial ‘Preacher’ for a fourth season. There will be a major change behind the scenes, however, as production moves to Australia after filming the first three seasons in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and New Orleans. Production is expected to begin in early 2019.
Like Season 1 and 3, Season 4 will consist of 10 episodes. (Season 2 expanded to 13.) It will premier in the fall, but it’s too early for a specific date to be given. Based on the DC/Vertigo comic book by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the TV series is produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Sam Caitlin, who also serves as showrunner. There may be another shift as Rogen and Goldberg have ended their development deal with Sony TV and are shifting over to Lionsgate.
AMC president of programming David Madden made the announcement of the renewal in a statement on Thursday:
“Preacher is a show unlike any other on television. A passionate base of fans found their way to Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) 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.”
