Preacher Season 3 Now in Production; New Characters Announced

We have some exciting news to share today regarding Season 3 of AMC’s “Preacher.” First, production has begun in New Orleans; and secondly, several characters from the comic book will be joining the series this year! If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll want to read on for the early details.

The new cast members include Tony-winner Betty Buckley (pictured right; “Supergirl,” Split) as “Gran’ma,” Colin Cunningham (below left; “Blood Drive,” “Falling Skies”) as “TC,” Liz McGeever (below center; “Star,” “Nashville”) as “Christina,” and Jeremy Childs (below right; The Last Castle, “Nashville”) as “Jody.”

Here are the character descriptions:

Betty Buckley as “Gran’ma” – A spiritist with true powers, who can cast spells and even bring back the dead (for a price). Pay the fee, or pay with your soul to feed Gran’ma’s thirst for eternal youth. She is weathered, tough, and mean, but also intelligent beyond measure. She’s Jesse’s only living family and she loves him.

Colin Cunningham as “TC” – A man born of the bayou and the loyal caretaker and soldier for Gran’ma. Weasely and wiry, he’ll gladly tell you about his perversions… whether you ask him or not. While he seems like the friendliest guy you’ll ever meet, don’t make the mistake of turning your back on him.

Liz McGeever as “Christina” – Capable and efficient, Christina has a face that lures customers in for her family business. Christina hides it well, but she hates her job and has dreams and aspirations outside of her current life – but suffers to protect her child.

Jeremy Childs as “Jody” – Massive and intimidating, Jody emanates danger. He’s the enforcer for Gran’ma and the only man Jesse’s never beaten in a fight. He’s nobody’s fool and not someone to cross.

Season 2 Recap:
After Jesse accidentally discovered that God is absent from Heaven, Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy set out on a road trip to find Him, all while being hunted by the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable, mythical killer from Hell. The trio’s pursuit led them to New Orleans, where they dodged local gangsters, dangerous agents, and other unimaginable mayhem on their way to uncovering an even bigger secret. Now, with Tulip’s life and Cassidy’s friendship in the balance, Jesse must rely on a mysterious figure from his past in order to save his friends and continue on with his mission.
