While some genre favourites have recently been sadly cancelled – most notably The Exorcist and Lucifer – one show that is returning imminently is AMC’s stunning Preacher. And now, we’ve been given our first look at one of the new characters set to be involved in Preacher’s third season.
As some shiny new images have been released by AMC, the part of this that will grab the attention of longtime Preacher fans is the first glimpse of Betty Buckley as Jesse’s no-good Gran’ma. And when we say no-good, we really mean it.
The official blurb on the Gran’ma character has her pegged as “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.
And while she does indeed love Jesse, that loves manifests itself in a strange, strange way.
The third season of Preacher will see Jesse’s quest to find God taking him back home; somewhere that he’s been purposely avoiding since the show began. There, of course, our titular Preacher will find old friends, old enemies, and even older grudges.
Preacher premieres its third season on June 24th.
