The fans of The Preacher were going well with the series. However, the series came to its end when the network declared Preacher Season 4 since the last season. However, is there some chance that the show would return with Preacher Season 5?
Well, till now, AMC has stayed mum. But, we could anticipate that there’s still a chance of Preacher Season 5, despite its conclusive and dramatic ending. The Preacher has produced a dedicated fanbase that’s always searching for the next season of the series. Further, the original comic books had maintained a sizable following after the series. Despite quitting its novel, it still turns out of the millennium.
Preacher, developed by Seth Rogen, Sam Catlin, and Evan Goldberg, is a comedy horror drama series on AMC. According to Steve Dillon and Garth Ennis’ comic books of the same name, we visit Jesse Custer, a chain-smoker and hardcore drinker who faces a catastrophe in his destiny. But later he discovered some remarkable powers and decided to explore them. In his pursuit, he attempts to understand his unique talent better and find equilibrium with God. He continued his pursuit with his trigger-happy former girlfriend Tulip and his new vampire buddy Cassidy.
PREACHER SEASON 5: IS THERE ANY CHANCE FOR RENEWAL?
Well, Preacher Season 4 had already adapted the closing comic book, and it concluded everything quite radically. But, with the onset of war between the streaming platform and the broadcasting community, there’s still a chance that Preacher Season 5 would revive soon.
This would explain the mystery that’s still left untouched. Unfortunately, it seems like Preacher Season 5 would not rekindle, at least at the present situation. Even though the network had not provided a legitimate reason for cancelling Preacher, however, there are lots of factors that we can consider.
A SUDDEN FALL IN THE RATINGS
Following statics, the ratings had significantly dropped over time. However, the first two seasons had gained immense popularity and won many hearts. It also attained the one-million mark. But, the gradual decline in the rating had escalated the level of this show. Further, the fourth year ratings dropped below a half million viewers.
It was the first time at the show’s history that it had dropped its ratings similar to this. Well, compared to AMC’s other displays, it’s quite familiar. But corresponding with all comic books’ popularity, the consequences of the series decline isn’t average. So, the viewership subsequently becomes the origin of the concern.
A SUDDEN SHIFT IN PRODUCTION HOUSE
The creators will also be responsible for the show’s cancellation. Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen just before the cancellation announcement transferred from Sony Television to Lionsgate. The duo signed a deal with Lionsgate Production Company. Shortly the network announced that the fourth season is the final season of this series.
IT ADAPTED THE FINAL STORY
Even though the series has skipped many narrative arcs and hadn’t cleared many mysteries, nevertheless Preacher Season 4 had accommodated the final story of this comic book, Alamo. As a result, there is no story left to portray. So there’s no way to the primary characters to research anything in the Preacher Season 5.
CHANCES FOR SPIN-OFFS ARE HIGH
However, there are chances that the show could focus on the spin-offs and explain the missing story arcs. Or there’s a risk that it would start with an entirely new narrative arc. That does not involve any adaptation from comic books. So, there is still a risk that Preacher Season 5 will return. But till today, nothing has been officially announced.
