Before Amazon Prime’s The Boys, there was another character based on Garth Ennis’s comics that made the audience fall in love. AMC’s Preacher is a supernatural drama series created by Sam Catlin, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen premiered the fourth season in 2019. Even though the season ended on a conclusive note, fans are still wondering will there be Preacher Season 5. So, let’s discuss what we know about it.
Preacher Season 5: Plot Details!
The first season of the series portrayed the story of a preacher named Jesse Custer with a questionable lifestyle. He is a smoker, an alcoholic, and he is also high several times. The show chronicles Jesse’s journey on the path of search of god. Jesse also has some supernatural abilities that he uses to save the world from unspeakable dangers.
The ending of the fourth season of the series was quite satisfying on so many levels. The Preacher trio was successfully able to stop the end of the world. Jesse finally got his confrontation with God. Cassidy also found peace in the end. Everyone who deserves it, and even a few who don’t, got their satisfying conclusions.
The fourth season of Preacher tried to wrap the majority of the ongoing storylines, so there is not much to anticipate about Preacher Season 5. The story has properly ended in the fourth season. So, if the show comes back for Preacher Season 5, it will likely follow an entirely different narrative or a new angle in the story. The show might decide to dive into completely uncharted territory by not following the plot that comic book explores.
Preacher Season 5: Cast Details!
Preacher stars some truly amazing actors. This includes Dominic Cooper in the role of Jesse Custer, the preacher. On the other hand, Joseph Gilgun plays the role of Proinsias Cassidy, Ruth Negga stars as Tulip O’Hare, and W. Earl Brown appears as Sheriff Hugo Root. Derek Wilson as Donnie Schenck, Ian Colletti as Eugene, Tom Brooke as Fiore, Anatol Yusef as DeBlanc, and Graham McTavish as The Saint of Killers.
In addition, other cast members of the series include Pip Torrens as Herr Starr, Noah Taylor as Adolf Hitler, and Julie Ann Emery as Sarah Featherstone. At the same time, Colin Cunningham essays T.C. Preacher, Betty Buckley plays Marie “Grandma” L’Angelle, and the god is portrayed by Mark Harelik. Even though there is very little chance but if the series returns for Preacher Season 5, then fans might see some original cast members starring in it, while there might be some new faces in the season.
Preacher Finale Left Fans Divided
It is a tale as old as time that finales of popular TV shows rarely manage to satisfy all the fans. At least one or the other section of the fans are mostly left disappointed with the ending. The ending of Preacher Season 4 has also created a division among the fans. With fan reactions ranging from highly positive to roundly condemning.
Some fans were angry claiming that the finale titled “End of the World” didn’t reach enough of a climax. Fans think that the episode spent more time tying off various character arcs, instead of bringing an outstanding conclusion to the stories that the series took so much time to establish. Fans were not happy with what happened to Cassidy and the choice of the creators to depict the Saint of Killers vs. God story from the comic books.
However, a competing position claims that Preacher’s last episode succeeded in resolving all of the characters and story arcs, hitting all of the proper emotional notes and remaining faithful to the series’ ethos. Critics’ scores reflected this divided reception, with most thinking that Preacher’s finale was a success overall but nonetheless plagued by some of the show’s long-standing problems.
Will There Be Preacher Season 5?
AMC premiered the fourth season of Preacher on August 4, 2019, and the season concluded on September 29. And, as far as Preacher Season 5 is concerned, unfortunately, we do not have good news for the fans of the series. Even before than premiere of the fourth season, the creators announced that it will be the last installment of the story, and there will not be Preacher Season 5. Co-creator Seth Rogan in an Instagram post wrote, “The fourth and final season of Preacher is coming. It’s been a wild ride. Thank you all.”
