AMC officially renewed fan-favorite Preacher for a second season today, set to premiere in 2017 with an expanded season of 13 episodes.

AMC president Charlie Collier went on to say: “What Sam, Seth, Evan and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis’ graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond.”

Live-action adaptations of occult graphic novels often seem to have bad luck. Movies like the Hellboy series are fanfavorites, but they fail to make enough money to warrant sequels. On the TV side of things, NBC’s Constantine was famously cancelled after just one season. Preacher appears to break the mold so far, though it remains to be seen if it will become a huge hit like Arrow or The Walking Dead.

If you are watching Preacher, we’ve been reviewing the season thus far, so check back weekly.
