At the end of the first season of AMC’s comic book adaptation Preacher, Ruth Negga’s Tulip, Joseph Gilgun’s Cassidy, and Dominic Cooper’s superpower-possessing Jesse Custer set off to find God. And, according to Negga, things do not go well with that search in season 2.
“It’s a road trip that goes horribly wrong,” the actress recently told EW. “Tulip’s expecting a great fun time, like a road trip you take with your friends, and it doesn’t end up quite like that. Tulip’s not that interested in looking for God; I don’t think she really believes in it. But unfortunately, her soul mate is Jesse and that’s what he wants. Tulip and Cassidy don’t really have any other options. He’s a vampire and she’s on the lam her whole life. Their only option is to go on the road with this other miscreant who they expect will show them a good time — but just doesn’t.”
Truth be told, as a just-released clip reveals, the expedition is not exactly a great time for Tulip right from the start — unless, of course, your idea of a great time is being lectured about circumcisions by a motormouthed vampire.
Preacher returns with a two-night event, beginning with the season 2 premiere on Sunday, June 25, at 10 p.m. ET, followed by the second episode on Monday, June 26, at 9 p.m. ET, in the series’ regular time slot.
