PREACHER Season 2 Teaser Unleashes the Saint of Killers

PREACHER Season 2 Teaser Unleashes the Saint of Killers

Last season on Preacher, fans who were unfamiliar with the original comic book series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon may have been confused by the focus on the Cowboy, as played by Graham McTavish. Through flashbacks, we witnessed the Cowboy suffer after a rare moment of altruism led him to lose his wife and daughter. Near the end of the season, the Cowboy was released from his torment with a mission to kill Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). But not before the Cowboy killed an angel on his way out of Hell.

Comic fans know the Cowboy by another name: the Saint of Killers. In AMC’s newest teaser for Preacher‘s second season, even Jesse and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) have reason to fear the Saint, because he’s one of the few individuals in Heaven and Hell who can’t simply be dismissed by Jesse’s “word of God.”

While the TV series has taken some liberties with the Saint’s origins, he’s already demonstrated that his guns can kill any celestial being. Within the comic—spoiler alert for those who don’t want to know!—the Saint’s outrage over the injustice of his death literally caused Hell to freeze over. It was the Angel of Death that gave the Saint his signature weapons, and the Saint’s first victim was none other than Satan himself. On top of everything else, the Saint can not be killed or commanded—he’s the ultimate wild card, and he’s coming for the Preacher!

The teaser also hints at other problems facing Jesse, Cassidy, and Tulip (Ruth Negga), including the organization known as the Grail and a legion of law enforcement officers. But that’s only the beginning of the insanity to come.

Preacher season 2 will premiere on Sunday, June 25.
