Despite a drop in the ratings last year, the Preacher TV show remained AMC’s fourth highest rated series in the 18-49 year old demo and fell just one slot, to sixth place, in terms of total viewers. Now that it is back for season three, will its Nielsen numbers rise, fall, or stay the same? Will Preacher be cancelled or renewed for season four? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A comedic supernatural AMC drama from Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen, Preacher stars Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, Ian Colletti Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Malcolm Barrett. Betty Buckley and Colin Cunningham join as season regulars in the third season, with Jeremy Childs, Liz McGreever, Jonny Coyne, Adam Croasdell, and Prema Cruz recurring. The story centers on West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Cooper), his badass ex-girlfriend Tulip (Negga), and Irish vampire Cassidy (Gilgun) on their road trip to find God. Along the way, they’re drawn into a battle spanning Heaven, Hell and all points in between.

*11/28/18 update: Preacher has been renewed for a fourth season. Details here.
My opinion season 3 writing could not have been better… My girlfriend and I were truly entertained with this season and look forward to another. If they keep up this blend of entertainment the TV show will be as good as any of the top AMC shows put out (if not better) including Walking Dead – and that goes a long way.
The Preacher is all that!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I put it over the fear of the walking dead!!! The Preacher needs more and more season’s!!! Please keep it going!!!!! More New season’s!!!
I love Preacher! Hoping there is a season 4 so much more to tell. Tulip and Jesse are awesome, and Cassidy kills me!!!
Next season could be it. Not a cheap show to make. A 0.25 live ratings average isn’t making AMC happy, unless someone else is helping foot the bill for this show.
Hands down one of my FAVORITE shows. Fear the walking dead can keep walking. Totally sucks compared to Preacher. So witty, very engaging characters! Keep it please!!!!
Please make a season 4. This show has so much more to tell. I am getting all my friends into it, they are usually hooked after the first 3-4 eps. The issue is accessibility. Put it on Netflix and ratings will skyrocket. No one in the demographic that targets this show uses Hulu.
you’re so right about,it was a recommendation from a friend too,at first i didn’t like it,but now am addicted,it will be awesome to have season 4 especially now where it has ended,theirs loads of questions and excitement.
I absolutely LOVE this show! Season 3 isn’t over yet and I already can’t wait till season 4. For the love God (hehe) make season 4! I’m tired of the awesome shows getting canned and straight up ridiculous shows sticking around. Huge Sci-fi / fantasy fan here. Don’t let us down Seth…
I would love to see a Season 4 of Preacher. It’s a fascinating and provocative and funny show. DElicious Gothic pastiche! Please, AMC, do renew Preacher for its Season 4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please we need season 4.Love Preacher. Preacher got better with every season. Took a while for me to get into it. But now I am hooked.
the writers on this show are truly starting suck.!!! need better writers.
What? Season 3 is the best!
I agree totally!! Writing is horrid
