Season 2 of Preacher is sure to be talked about quite a bit in the comic book world. Now that Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy are heading on their road trip, the show is sure to get better, right? Only time will tell. Unfortunately, season 1 of Preacher went up against Game of Thrones therefore it didn’t stand a chance. AMC might change that in Season 2.
If you remember, the premiere of Season 1 was the week before Memorial Day weekend. They took a week off to re-air the premiere before then having episode 2 two weeks after the premiere.
If AMC wants to go down the same road, the premiere of season 2 will be on May 21st, 2017. Hopefully, they learned their lesson and will move it to the Sunday after Memorial Day weekend which will be June 4th, 2017.
If AMC really wants to get smart, they will make certain Game of Thrones season 7 is over before premiering season 2 of Preacher. Who knows if they will do that, but it would make season. In our opinion, the TV ratings and viewership suffered due to the fact that it went up against Game of Thrones on Sunday night. I think it can be accepted that HBO owns Sunday nights with Westworld and Game of Thrones.
Maybe AMC will move Preacher to another night of the week? Only time will tell. When do you think Preacher should air? Sunday nights? At the same time of year as Game of Thrones?
