For all things, there is an end. And for AMC’s Preacher, it comes in its fourth season.
Executive producer Seth Rogen made the announcement on his Twitter feed earlier today, also revealing the series will return for its last hurrah on August 4th:

The series stars Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer, a former preacher out to give God whatfor. Of course, the Almighty has abandoned his post in Heaven, leading Jesse to quest across the country — and parts of the globe — to find him and gets some answers. Along for the journey are his gun-totting girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and vampire pal Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). Ian Coletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Malcolm Barrett also appear as various members of the wacked-out world created by Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon.
Across the last few years, the show defied expectations by eking out season renewals despite its potentially offensive premise. But just as the original Ennis and Dillon comic book series was intended for a relatively short run, so to the television series always seemed destined to make its mark after a few short seasons. Honestly, it only seems fair and appropriate. But will it find its way to the comic book conclusion or define its own ending?
