The brass over at ABC have given the green light to bringing back the show Preacher for a third season, set to premiere on the network in 2018.

If you’re a fan of the Preacher man, here’s some awesome news for you!

Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we can officially pass on to you that AMC has renewed Preacher for a third season on the network. Containing 13 all new episodes, Season 3 will air sometime during 2018 on a date as of yet to be determined.

News of the renewal is additionally confirmed by executive producer Seth Rogen on Twitter.

This series has been pretty entertaining throughout its two seasons. But the future of the show was on the bubble, with Season 2 concluding a month ago with no official update on a renewal. Now fans of the program don’t have to worry about leaving things with a cliffhanger, as we will get to see sometime next year what happens next.

Official synopsis:

“Fulfilling a promise to his deceased father, one-time outlaw Jesse Custer returns home to West Texas to take over his dad’s church. Jesse’s mission, however, becomes twisted when his body is overcome by a cryptic force that unleashes within him a highly unconventional power. Together with hell-raising ex-girlfriend Tulip and Irish vagabond Cassidy, the preacher-in-training embarks on a journey to find God in a world inhabited by holy, hellish, and everything-in-between characters.”
