Fans of the current New Orleans-shot second season of “Preacher” can consider their prayers answered. Producers of the reliably unpredictable AMC series have filed paperwork to shoot its third season in the Crescent City as well.

It’s the first signal that AMC has green-lit the series for a third time around.

The filing with the Louisiana film office shows pre-production on Season 3 is slated to start in early November. Principal photography would begin Jan. 5, 2018.

That would put it on a similar production timeline as the current Season 2, which debuted June 25 on the cable channel — and which suggests a summer 2018 air-date for Season 3.

The new season would be shot on an estimated budget of $70 million, up slightly from the $67 million estimated for the 13-episode Season 2, the state filing shows. An estimated $50 million of that Season 3 budget would be spent in Louisiana, with $19 million of that earmarked for in-state payroll.

Based on the supernatural comic published by the DC imprint Vertigo in the 1990s, “Preacher” follows the adventures of a small-town Texas preacher (Dominic Cooper), who hits the road with his assassin ex-girlfriend (Ruth Negga) and his vampire best friend (Joseph Gilgun) in attempt to find — and have a word or two with — God, who has gone missing on Earth.

In Season 2, the fourth episode of which aired Sunday (July 9), their journey brings the characters to New Orleans.

How have things changed with Preacher?

The first series was a prequel to the comic books, the second contains more hectic madness as Cassidy and Tulip venture out with Jesse on his mission, although they don’t quite know why. Now they’ve established who the characters are, they let the floodgates open and go crazy with the ideas that Garth Ennis originally came up with in the comic.

Why do you think it’s so popular?

You’re never expecting what happens next. It leads you in an unexpected direction and even though they’re ludicrous characters, they’re embedded in some sort of realism. Now you know what motivates them to continue this crazed chase with this unknown entity, as long as they’re real you can follow what they’re searching for. There’s gore, madness, mild violence — there’s kind of everything.

How do you handle the gore?

The only thing that becomes problematic is being covered in fake, sticky, sugary blood! There were some guts and intestines hanging out the back of our car that we had to nibble on. That was rather repulsive.

On the very special, Season 3 finale of Hot Ones, comedian Seth Rogen and actor Dominic Cooper brace themselves for some hot questions and even hotter wings with Sean Evans. Rogen (“Preacher” creator) and Cooper (Jesse Custer) are used to battling supernatural forces for our entertainment. But how will the team fair against demonically spicy hot sauces like Mad Dog 357 and Zombie Apocalypse? From stories about near-death experiences, to thinking up a new, NSFW hot sauce name, Rogen and Cooper bring the heat on the most combustible season send-off to date. Preacher airs on AMC on Mondays at 9/8c

Looking For Meaning

♦Preacher season two started yesterday with a bang on AMC in the US and on Amazon Prime in the UK and over at amc.com, they just spoke to Dominic Cooper aka Jesse Custer about the new season. Warning: A few spoilers ahead…

Q: What has it been like for you filming the show “on the road” this season? Do you think Jesse is different now that he’s freed from his responsibilities in Annville?

A: He’s freed from them, and I think he’d like to escape and keep moving. He’s relaxed and happy to be with his friends, and with a sole and specific purpose in his life that he has not had for a long time – one that he thinks deserves the fight and the search. He’s constantly tormented by the demons of his past, but I think it’s relieving to get away from a town where he failed.  He’s running away from the realization that he is extraordinarily useless and not great at preaching.

Q: Jesse encourages Tulip to get into the car chase with the cops. Do you enjoy seeing him let out his dark side more?

A: It’s great, but it’s a constant battle for him. That’s the real him – the smile as he fights, the enjoyment he gets from the danger. He’s a criminal, and he tried very hard to suppress the criminal aspects of himself. Now, he’s completely protected by this power, and I think the ugly side of that will emerge. He doesn’t quite know what this is, and he thinks he’s on a mission that is wholeheartedly good. But actually he chooses to do all these dangerous things he shouldn’t be doing because he’s completely protected by this power that he doesn’t understand.

It’s no secret that AMC has a lenient gore policy given that The Walking Dead headlines its lineup, but we’d argue that this season of Preacher might be even gorier than watching the zombie kill of the week.

In this upcoming season, we’ve got a preacher, a vampire and a former assassin all road tripping together to find God, so the gore factor is predictably about to get upped in all the best ways.

“It gets more and more gory,” Dominic Cooper says. “There are some wonderfully choreographed episodes, where I had to learn a much more complex series of fight routines … It gets worse and worse in a good way. There are a lot of intestines.”

Having seen the Season 2 premiere, we can absolutely corroborate this statement. Keep a puke bucket nearby if you’ve got a weak stomach.

“It is extreme, a lot of the things that happen to people,” Graham McTavish says, “And the way that people die in Preacher — it’s not just sort of boring, conventional ways people would die normally in a show. It’s quite creative, and my character particularly finds interesting ways to deal with people with his various weapons and his bare hands.”

Preacher premieres June 25th at 10/9c on AMC.

Dominic Cooper, who plays Jesse Custer on AMC’s Preacher, discusses why Jesse has become more reckless with his power, what he thinks of the Saint of Killers, and having “Come on Eileen” stuck in his head.

The premiere of the second season of Preacher concluded with a tribute frame reading “For Steve,” honoring Steve Dillon.

Dillon met some of the stars of AMC’s adaptation of his creation and Dominic Cooper and Joseph Gilgun shared some of what they remembered of Dillon while on set in New Orleans.

“We were very honored to have this time,” Cooper says. “He was a lovely man and part of all this. We wouldn’t be here without what he did. And that whole time we were in Los Angeles, in the hotel, he would be there chatting with us. I think we spent the entire night with him, one night. Just chatting and he was observing our chaos and carnage that was unfolding in one of our hotel rooms.”

“I think he was very proud and very honored to see what his wonderful work had become and how it was going to reach more audiences and I think he liked our company as we did his,” Cooper continues. “I think he enjoyed even us. Certainly watching the show, but seeing us, pretty much behaving as we do as the characters but in the social environment. It was nice to be around him, be near him. And they were such great friends, Garth and him. And to be around that history of friendship, as well. And to feel so excited that their work, after all this time of people trying to get it off the ground, was being realized. And I think that was wonderful to see.”
