It’s been nine years since the film adaptation of Mamma Mia! rocked audiences around the world, and finally fans will get a chance to see what all their favorite characters have been up to in the recently-confirmed sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!

Among the many stars who’ve recently signed on to reprise their roles is Dominic Cooper, who says he’s very excited to be involved in the long-awaited sequel.

“It’s kind of a phone call I’ve been waiting for for 10 years, so it was odd to finally get it,” Cooper told ET on Tuesday during a press junket for his acclaimed AMC series Preacher. “I mean, I was always surprised that it hadn’t come sooner.”

The musical rom-com — which was adapted from a Broadway show of the same name, based on the songs of the beloved Swedish pop group ABBA — was a smash hit when it hit theaters.

The film earned $144 million domestically and $610 million worldwide based off a $52 million budget. Its massive financial success essentially guaranteed that the film would get a sequel, but most people didn’t expect the follow-up to take a decade to come together.

The second season of AMC’s Preacher aims to be one heck of a holy road trip.

Small-town Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), given extraordinary powers from the spawn of an angel and demon living in his body, embarks on a journey to find God — currently missing from heaven — with his two best pals, ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and 119-year-old Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). And his quest is only going to get weirder.

“I don’t ever know really know how to describe what we’re creating here,” Cooper says of the show, which returns June 25 (10 ET/PT) for 13 new episodes. “I’m endlessly shocked and surprised by the characters who are walking out of trailers or scenes unfolding before my very eyes.”

Dominic Cooper is a conflicted man of God in ‘Preacher’
The first season of Preacher made its mark with violence, insane plot twists (Tom Cruise was blown up in the premiere episode) and crazy characters, from the pair of angels (Tom Brooke and Anatol Yusef) assigned to return Genesis home to the troubled disfigured boy named Arseface (Ian Colletti) who confides in Jesse and winds up in hell.

The Preacher star on Cassidy and Tulip’s secret, and delivering ‘a totally different show to some extent’

Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy hit the roaring road, on the search for God Almighty, as Preacher returns to AMC on Sunday, June 25th at 10/9c.

We’ve got a first look at some “powerful” new Season 2 key art for you, as well as a revealing chat with star Dominic Cooper, where he discusses this year’s crazy road-trip premise, Jesse’s continued mishandling of the Genesis power, Tulip’s secret, insane new fights scenes, and more.

Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, Preacher is an absurdly twisted and action packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer (Cooper), a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip (Ruth Negga), Jesse’s volatile true love, and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun), an 119 year old Irish vampire and Jesse’s best mate. In Season 2, the gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish), an unstoppable killer cowboy from Hell.

Check out the new key art in the gallery below (look for a shadowy glimpse of the aforementioned Saint of Killers), along with more new Season 2 art, and then continue on to see what Dominic Cooper has to say about the chaos of Season 2…

IGN: Season 1 was centered in Annville but now you’ve left that behind in a very explosive way, literally. What’s it like having Jesse, Tulip, and Cassidy be on the road this season?

Dominic Cooper: It’s been odd, actually. But it’s been odd in a great way. It almost feels like we’re in a totally different show to some extent. And the landscape and the backdrop of where we are is playing a role, as it did before, just like the backdrop of Annville and the slower pace of the town were very much a part of the atmosphere of that first season. I think now things are much more hectic and ever-changing. Evolving as we visit new landscapes and areas. It’s lends itself to the madness of our inner psychology, I suppose. Which seems, at first, like a straight road complete with clarity. And the idea that Jesse is following is very specific. But that very quickly starts to deteriorate and fall apart. I think that’s been very cleverly integrated into the scripts with this idea of being on the road.

AMC’s “Preacher” is coming to New Orleans. Producers of the darkly comic series, developed partly by Seth Rogen and creative partner Evan Goldberg, have filed paperwork with the Louisiana film office to shoot its 13-episode second season in town in early 2017.

Adapted from the supernaturally tinged cult comic book series of the same name, “Preacher” stars Dominic Cooper as a small-town Texas man of the cloth who, suffering a crisis of faith, is imbued with mysterious powers. From there, describing the show — a striking, often unsettling blend of horror, violence, comedy and theology — becomes difficult.

“The show’s just bonkers,” Goldberg said in a promotional video for AMC. “It’s just a crazy show.”

Added Rogen: “It’s about an angel-demon baby that goes inside a guy who has a vampire for a best friend.”

Co-starring Joseph Gilgun, Ruth Negga and Jackie Earle Haley, the first season — which was shot in New Mexico — ran for 10 episodes and received mostly positive reviews, although it took a bit of time for it to catch on ratings-wise.

Season 2, which has already started pre-production, is expected to begin shooting at the end of January. It will be shot on a budget of $66.7 million, with $48.3 million of that being spent in-state, including $18 million on Louisiana payroll.

“Preacher” joins a fast-growing list of TV series setting up shop in Louisiana for early 2017 shoots, including the first season of the Disney series “Shadows,” the SyFy series “Superstition” and the pilot for the potential SyFy series “The Haunted.” In addition, Season 3 of “NCIS: New Orleans” is expected to continue shooting through spring 2017, while Season 2 of OWN’s “Queen Sugar” is expected to start shooting in March.

Some, like The Flash, Arrow and Gotham, embrace the worlds of costumed characters and larger-than-life villains. These are shows about secret identities, fancy gadgets and traditional comic-book mythology.

Others, such as The Walking Dead and Lucifer, are based on comic books that exist in a far grittier world. These are shows that are often about strangers trying to survive in a strange land.

The latest in that second category is AMC’s Preacher, based on the comic book created by Garth Ennis. It is a dark and twisted story of a West Texas preacher, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper). He’s living in a world populated by a cast of characters from Heaven, Hell and places in-between.

Almost every TV series adapted from a comic book deviates from the source material, as fans of The Walking Dead can confirm. Preacher is no different — but the changes were made after talks with the author.

Ennis told the executive producers to make all the small changes they wanted. Keeping the general story will appease fans and small changes will make it less predictable.

Libertine 1

Dominic Cooper established his name with THE HISTORY BOYSmore than twelve years ago. Since then he has often played rotters and his latest role as John Wilmot, Second Earl of Rochester in THE LIBERTINE which opens at the Theatre Royal in Bath on 31st August does nothing to dispel that image. Here he talks about the play and his part in it . . .

What attracted you to The Libertine?

Someone mentioned the play to me – I think it was an actor who wanted to direct it – about two years ago, maybe more. I got approached about doing it but it never happened at the time, but I read it and loved it. Then very strangely my agent said to me ‘Do you fancy doing a play?’ and I said ‘Yeah, I’m desperate to do one’. She said ‘What play do you want to do?’ and when I said The Libertine she said ‘Are you joking? I’ve just put down the phone from the producers who are looking for someone for The Libertine’. That’s absolutely how it happened. From the moment I first read it I loved its wit and its humour and the world of excess and the lifestyle he led at that time in England. It was a huge time of change and I was interested in how Rochester felt towards the King; what close proximity he had to the King and how he treated him. He’s such a complex, confused, dark man who never really fulfilled his potential. He was his own worst enemy in that his intellect caused complications; it hindered him more than it helped. There are so many layers to him and it’s a part that hopefully I will do justice to. I’m constantly rediscovering things every day and that will carry on – I think there will be new discoveries made in each performance. I couldn’t be loving it more actually.

Are there any similarities between you and the character?

No, not at all. He was extraordinary narcissist. There’s this wonderful speech at the beginning where he talks about the fact that he must not be ignored. Clearly he wants to be on people’s minds and thought of all the time. We are the centre of our parents’ universe, I suppose, up to a certain age and there’s a horrible moment of discovery when you realise you’re not the centre of the world. You think you are, but you’re actually just the centre of your parents’ world. There’s a realisation that many have and many don’t, and Rochester stays believing he’s the centre of the universe because he can’t bear competition from the King and he hates the lack of change the King has made.

It must be great fun getting to play such a rogue?

It’s wonderful but it’s about the language as well. Stephen Jeffreys has written such a magnificent play and the language is very fulfilling and terribly enjoyable. It’s like doing a Shakespeare in many ways. It’s that enjoyment of language they had then that Stephen certainly enjoys. That for me is very fulfilling and rare as an opportunity – to enjoy the language so much and behave in the way Rochester does; to enjoy the excess and the danger and the threat and how he relishes that. It’s a really fun character to immerse yourself in.
