February 16, 2022
HBO Max announced today that Peacemaker has been renewed for a second season. The good news comes a month into the comedic drama's run and the day ahead of its freshman finale.
Created by James Gunn, the show is the first original series on the streaming platform to be based on a DC property. Since its premiere the show has garnered a good amount of buzz as well as a solid critical reception. Gunn is slated to write and direct all Season 2 episodes.
Set after the events of 'The Suicide Squad' film, Peacemaker explores the origins of the titular DC Comics character and his subsequent adventures, which find him with a new team and a new mission - all in the name of achieving peace at any cost.
Learning about and eventually becoming #PEACEMAKER was an exercise in exploring the fun and absolutely genius mind of @JamesGunn. It’s been a privilege to work on this show and with the cast, crew and @hbomax team. Elated to say we’ll be back to create more peace for Season ✌️! pic.twitter.com/ujeeXODvOn— John Cena (@JohnCena) February 16, 2022
I didn't like the two Suicide Squad movies much, but I'm liking this series. Anyway, the S1 finale comes out in ~3 hours (my time as I type this). I'm really hoping the eagle doesn't get killed off...
