The release date for the second season of Preacher has been announced. 

The show will return to AMC in the US on June 19th, with episodes showing up on Amazon Prime Video soon after in the UK.

The adaption of the much-celebrated comic book started last year, and stars British actor Dominic Cooper as a priest who is taken over by a demon and tasked with fighting God himself. 

The first season followed Jesse and friends as they set out to search Texas to literally find God, who is an actual being that has abandoned heaven.

The series is produced by US network AMC (the channel behind The Walking Dead) but Amazon have the rights to air it in the UK.

The second season has also been extended to 13 episodes, meaning that it will be a longer season compared to the first. 

Series star Dominic Cooper teased the second season with pictures of the filming at the start of the year.

Ruth Negga, who plays Tulip on the show, said that the cast was prepared for it to become a long-running series.

“So in its simplest form, this first season can be seen as a prequel to the comic books.

“But I'm excited for season two. We've laid the foundations, now we're going to build a really beautiful, awesome house!"

You can watch the first season of Preacher on Amazon Prime Video now.
