Is ‘Preacher’ On The Verge Of Cancellation?

Is ‘Preacher’ On The Verge Of Cancellation?


The “Preacher” Two-Night premiere hits AMC tonight, but a peculiar marketing decision may allude to a potentially fatal problem for the series.

With the kickoff to “Preacher” premiere only hours away, AMC’s final marketing push comes across as awfully peculiar. Instead of showcasing the characters or set as a symbolic precursor what’s to come this season, the poster in bold letters above features recent films created by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen with a picture of the pair below.



As a show moving into its second season, one would imagine that “Preacher” has already established enough of a fan following and viewer interest not to need to cash in on Seth Rogen so directly. To me that seems like something a series that’s on the ropes would do, a scenario where the network has no confidence in the rapport of its characters. They even dangle a sneak peak teaser call to action button to bait viewers.

See the questionable “Preacher” promo image below:


This blatant use of Rogen to wrangle any last minute viewer for their premiere event seems suspiciously ominous. Even the file name,”preacher-S2-TONIGHT-seth-evan-blast.jpg,” is a cringe-inducing statement. I may be reading into to much, but I just feel like if “Preacher” was healthy Rogen would by a “brought to you by” text header on the promo material at best.

The “Preacher” Two-Night premiere begins on AMC tonight at 10/9C.

What do you think? Is preacher on the verge of cancellation, or is this standard practice? Tell us below!

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
