Preacher Season 3: Meet Allfather D’Aronique, the corpulent head of the Grail, in first-look teaser
The show that centered on the misadventures of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) will be moving on to a new setting, replete with a host of otherworldly characters in the third season
In terms of its intense tone and theme, the darkly comedic AMC series Preacher is making no exception when it comes to its upcoming season.
The show that is centered on the misadventures of the not-so-ideologically-driven Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) will, however, be moving on to a new setting, replete with a host of otherworldly characters in the third season. A first-look teaser of the upcoming season was recently released by the network and you can check it out below.
Together with his outlaw girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and the vagabond Irish vampire, Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), our unconventional preacher's long-standing quest for God is going to take him to fresher pastures. The last season saw Jesse and co's presence ravage the town of New Orleans but, this time around, the trio will be shifting base to Angelville.
Incidentally, it's also a place that Jesse has been avoiding his whole life, having practically been raised on this plantation in Louisiana. As this twisted journey in search of the Almighty continues, fans of the show better be prepared to feast on a slew of new and outrageous characters.
Going back to Jesse's old roots will mean that some not-so-familiar names associated with the preacher's life are about to pop up. The list includes his dark Gran’ma (played by Betty Buckley) and her loyalists TC (portrayed by Colin Cunningham) and Jody (Jeremy Childs).
Cast additions for Preacher season 3 also include Liz McGeever as Christina, Adam Crosadell in the role of Eccarius, and Prema Cruz as Madame Boyd.
However, one of the most anticipated characters of the season is Allfather D'Aronique (Jonny Coyne), the gluttonous leader of the organization called the Grail. Described as the 112th Allfather of the Grail, D'Aronique is defined by his corpulence and intelligence. He is indeed powerful and someone Jesse isn't looking forward to having a reunion with.
The official synopsis of the new season reads: "In Season 3, Jesse Custer’s quest for God takes him back to the place he’s been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past… because the future of the world depends on it."
Preacher season 3 premieres on Sunday, June 24 at 10pm EST on AMC.
