Preacher ends third season with a pop, not a bang
We’re three seasons into what some Ars Technica staffers consider the best TV show based on a DC Comics series: Preacher. The sacred and profane collide on a regular basis in this violent, cartoony adaptation of comics created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon in 1995.
Whether you’ve kept up with the series or are oblivious to its existence, Sunday night’s Season 3 finale had all the elements we’ve come to expect from this singular series: rollicking road trips, black humor, and lots of operatic, over-the-top violence in the form of gory slow-motion action sequences set to music. We got personal closure for our main protagonist and a few breadcrumbs to hint at a possible fourth season, despite that familiar mix of low ratings, critical accolades, and a fervent fandom.
(This article reveals major plot points of the first three seasons of Preacher, but it is mindful of spoilers in general, should you be interested in a recap but still want to preserve some surprises.)
