Peacemaker Season 2 CONFIRMED by James Gunn
A day before the Peacemaker Season 1 finale is airing, director James Gunn took to Twitter to confirm that Peacemaker will indeed be renewed for Season 2.
The series serves as a spin-off from Gunn’s DCEU debut project The Suicide Squad and revolves around the titular character, played by John Cena, of the same name. Alongside Cena, the series also features the returning cast of Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Steve Agee as John Economos and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller as well as introducing new characters such as Vigilante (played by Freddie Stroma), Leota Adebayo (played by Danielle Brooks), Auggie Smith (played by Robert Patrick) and Clemson Murn (played by Chukwudi Iwuji).

Peacemaker Season 1 picks up months after the events of The Suicide Squad as Christopher Smith (Peacemaker) is recovering from his failed mission and re-enlisted by Amanda Waller, under the close watch of Emilia Harcourt and John Economos, to join Project Butterfly. The Black Ops squad, headed by Clemson Murn and featuring newbie Leota Adebayo, are tasked with tracking and killing extra-terrestrial beings before they are able to complete their plans to take over the earth.
The newly released series has been causing plenty of positive talk and reviews and the Season 2 renewal shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone given the success it has endured during its tenure on HBO Max. After only a month, the newest DC series became the highest-rated DCEU project to date with a 94% score, surpassing the previous holder of this title 2017’s Wonder Woman which sat at an impressive 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The cast have also voiced their love and passion for Peacemaker adding to the excitement that Season 2 will be just as good as the first one, but it may be a while until we do indeed receive Season 2. James Gunn himself confirmed that he will be writing and directing every episode of the next season, but he currently has his hands tied over at Marvel with his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 & The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special currently in production.
He also confirmed he is working on another “secret” DC project which may push the production of Peacemaker Season 2 but from all the positive reception from Season 1, it will certainly be worth the wait.
