AMC has announced that “Preacher,” the hit drama based on the Vertigo comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, will return for its 13-episode second season on Monday, June 19, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. That marks a move from Sunday to Monday, which has become AMC’s second night for original programming.
The network has handed out a back-nine order to sophomore drama Lucifer, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The order brings its season two tally to a full 22 episodes.
From prolific producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Lucifer is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman and hails from his DC Entertainment-based Vertigo comic series. The Tom Ellis and Lauren German starrer is produced by Tom Kapinos, Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich, Joe Henderson and Len Wiseman and in its second season on Mondays following Gotham has proven to be a reliable performer (and creating a DC Comics-themed Monday block). Factoring in multiple platform and DVR plays, season two is averaging 8 million total viewers — up 105 percent compared with its same-day haul.
“Lucifer continues to deliver, with great blasts of dark humor and ambitious storytelling. The show has turned out to be a true wicked pleasure, the perfect companion to Gotham, and we couldn’t be more pleased to order these nine additional episodes,” Fox Broadcasting president David Madden said. “We’d like to thank Tom, Lauren and the entire cast, who have imbued these characters with charm, humor and a great deal of humanity. Our thanks also go out to the production crew — Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy — who, week-in and week-out, deliver a stellar show. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the season.”

I don’t know if this is all part of the plan. Or if You can even hear me. But if You’re up there… Dad… I need a favour. I’ll be the son you always wanted me to be. I’ll do as You ask. Go where You want me to. In exchange, all I ask is… is that you protect Chloe.
