Sorry, Preacher fans, but your prayers have not been answered: The action-packed AMC drama will end after its upcoming fourth season, which will debut on Sunday, Aug. 4.
Based on the Garth Ennis/Steve Dillon comic book, Preacher starred Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a laconic preacher in rural Texas who finds himself possessed by a supernatural force and locked in an epic battle of good versus evil. (That battle involves lots of high-octane, kick-ass fight scenes, by the way.) Oscar nominee Ruth Negga co-starred as Jesse’s gun-toting girlfriend Tulip, with Joseph Gilgun playing Irish vampire Cassidy.
Executive producer Seth Rogen confirmed the news with a tweet on Monday, referring to Season 4 as the “final season”:
Debuting in May 2016, Preacher got renewed for a fourth season in November, with production relocating to Australia. TVLine’s Cable Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect the final-season news.
