Critic Reviews for Preacher Season 2

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (8)

Preacher just feels slightly... hollow. Style over substance. Sound and fury, signifying nothing much. A noisy, gory, breakneck-paced romp aimed at overgrown teenage geek-boys.

With Jesse still taking much of the main focus, this newest season of Preacher benefits from his sense of singular purpose.

...an anarchic blast of violent fun, weird metaphysics and general gonzo goofiness.

Jun 11, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

Preacher never quite creates appointment television with its storytelling. It can be interesting (the second episode Season 2 is the show truly at its best), but it's juggling a lot of elements without moving things forward enough.

The second season of Preacher appears to fully deliver on its promise...Rogen and Goldberg have hand-crafted a fresh take on the source material that's as much of a gift to the fans as Ennis' comics.

Preacher is extremely violent and often grotesque, but it hits its stride mashing high-brow theology with comic book insanity.

Jun 23, 2017 | Full Review…

Rogen and Goldberg, who directed the season 2 premiere written by Catlin, continue to imbue the action with enough slapstick to keep viewers from taking almost everything they're seeing too seriously.

Jun 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Although Preacher does lapse into the occasional dude-bro moment, its sense of humour allows it to carve its own niche, and what an enjoyable niche that is. Let the hunt for God begin.

Jun 26, 2017 | Full Review…

Preacher recovers a lot of ground from the first season, thanks in part to improved pacing. And it's really just looking better than ever, from the costuming to the sun-washed cinematography and gorgeous saturated colors.

Audience Reviews for Preacher: Season 2

½

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.
