Critic Reviews for Preacher: Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (6)

As a show, Preacher feels more vibrant, more energetic, more intense and, frankly, more enjoyable this time out, with the up-and-down nature of the central story dragging you through the wringer just as much as any of its key players.

November 22, 2017 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

More than anything, Season 2 found success playing with the two biggest villains in the comics: the Saint and Herr Starr.

All in all, it still seems like the supernatural Western can't quite figure out what it wants to be - but two seasons should have been plenty of time for Preacher to find its footing.

It may have been a diluted shell of its potential beforehand, but Preacher seems to have loosened up and stepped on the gas.

Metro (UK)

"Beautiful people kicking ass and drawling zingers" is about as low-risk and high-reward a proposition you can make for a Monday night in August, particularly when one of the beautiful people in question is (the now Oscar-nominated!) Ruth Negga.

So far, the show has managed to walk that tricky tightrope between hilariously offensive and morally responsible.

Audience Reviews for Preacher: Season 2


Preacher goes from mildly offensive to blasphemous in its second season, which is a total mess. After the destruction of Annville Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy go on a road trip in search of God (who?s gone missing from Heaven); meanwhile the Saint of Killers is released from Hell to hunt down and kill Jesse in order to stop him from using Genius. The first season managed to avoid a lot the heavier religious issues, but season 2 crafts a perverted mythology with a sexually deviant god, and Jesus as an adulterer who fathered an inbred line of retards (retarded persons) and is protected by a holy order led by a Nazi. But besides the bad mythos, the characters are all scattered in different subplots; Eugene struggles to get by in Hell, Tulip takes off with her estranged husband, Cassidy visits with his son, and Jesse frequents jazz clubs looking for God. Losing its focus and going a lot darker, Preacher completely falls apart in its second season.
