'Preacher' Ends Up Second-Best New Cable Drama of 2016

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell AMC has revealed that Preacher has finished up in the top 10 cable dramas and is the second best new cable drama of 2016 among adults 25-54.

The ten episode first season averaged 3.0 million viewers per episode, with 1.7 of that in the 25-54 demo. Sunday's finale saw 3.1 million viewers. A second season is on the way, set to premiere in 2017.

“When we announced plans for a TV adaptation of the iconic comic book Preacher, the most consistent reaction – often, even, from existing fans – was, ‘There’s no way to do that story on television.’ Thanks to the vision, passion, smarts and guts of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Sam Catlin and the entire team on this show, we have just concluded a season of television that looks like nothing else I have ever seen on television,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, in a press release.

“Huge thanks and well done to the trio of Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun, who are now leading a road trip unlike any other. And, of course, thank you again to our partners at Sony Pictures Television, Tom Cruise, and the creators of Preacher, Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, the latter simply for being so damned crazy in the first place. It is the time of the Preacher, and the story really has just begun."
