TO THE END OF THE WORLD!



AMC’s twisted and outrageous supernatural drama Preacher, has returned for its fourth and final chapter in Australia. The Vertigo cult-classic comic book series stars Dominic Cooper, Academy Award® nominee Ruth Negga and Joseph Gilgun.

MADE IN AUSTRALIA

Trapped between heavenly prophecies, hellish prisons, and all-out nuclear war, Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy make their bloody way to the Most High. Whether they can reach God in time – or whether all this carnage is part of His divine plan – will soon be revealed as Preacher barrels towards the end of the world.

As part of Ausfilm’s services to international filmmakers, executives from the Preacher creative team and Australian-based Playmaker, were hosted by Ausfilm on an Australian location scout.

Film Victoria was successful in attracting Preacher Season 4 to film in the state of Victoria through its Production Incentive Attraction Fund (PIAF) and also provided location and production services support. The entire season was filmed at the Docklands Studios in Melbourne and on location in Victoria.

Numerous Ausfilm members from around Australia  also contributed their services and facilities on this series.

The production was supported by the Australian Government through the Government’s Location Incentive, administered by the Department of Communications and the Arts, and by Film Victoria.

Showrunner and Writer, Sam Catlin, praised: “Working in Melbourne was an unbelievable experience – top notch crews, world-class city, and I had one of the best times of my life both personally and creatively. Working at Docklands Studios Melbourne was also amazing, with state-of-the-art facilities, and stages which could handle anything we needed. I would love to film in Melbourne again, and highly recommend it to others.”

Dominic, Cooper, who plays Jesse Custer in the Preacher series was right at home in Melbourne: “I was apprehensive in terms of bringing an entire show to film such a long way away, (but) I’ve never been so pleased with the decision to come and shoot here. I’ve felt more at home here than most places I’ve ever worked. I like the camaraderie, the general nature of everyone I’ve met here. Almost all of us have said, “I think I could live here”. The crew have been incredible. I think it’s going to be the best season so far.”

Preacher Season 4 first aired on Sunday, August 4 at 9pm ET on AMC in North America. Watch it in Australia on streaming service Stan at the same time.

Ausfilm congratulates AMC and Sony Pictures Television, the cast, crew and all Ausfilm member companies who contributed their creative talent, state-of-the-art facilities and expert services on this series:
