DC’s fan base is vast, and we have a piece of good news for all those fans. DC is landing a TV Spin-off of the upcoming Suicide Squad. Suicide Squad in itself is a much-anticipated movie, and now HBO Max has ordered the eight episodes series spin-off of this film. Calling a spin-off before even the release of Suicide Squad shows how confident DC is about the movie.
James Gunn, who was in the controversies a few years ago and was removed from the chair of the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, will be directing Peacemaker. If you are wondering what happened with Gunn then? Don’t worry, it all worked out; you can read it here.
On HBO Max, Season 2 of James Gunn’s acclaimed DC series Peacemaker is now available. If you are here to read about the cast and check if it really is John Cena, it indeed is him! So when can you get to watch the show? And what it could reveal? Let’s find out!
Peacemaker Season 2 Release date: When will it premiere?
Gunn and show actor John Cena shared the news via social media, with Gunn earlier indicating on Deadline’s Hero Nation podcast that a second season on the streaming service was a strong possibility.
Gunn previously revealed on the Hero Nation podcast that he is working on a new Suicide Squad spinoff series focused on a different character.
That’s right, #Peacemaker is coming back for Season Two. Thanks to Peter Safran, @JohnCena, our incredible cast & crew, our wildly supportive & lovely friends at @HBOMax – and mostly all of you for watching! @DCpeacemaker pic.twitter.com/wZSZBivrDQ— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 16, 2022
HBO Max officially announced the series on 23rd September 2020. However, they did not reveal much information; they gave us enough clues to estimate the release date. We know that James Gunn will be working on Peacemaker before Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.
This tells us that HBO is really in a hurry. The Production of Peacemaker will begin in early 2021. The Suicide Squad is released on 21st August 2021. It is pretty clear that the makers want to release the series near the release date of Suicide Squad as both of them are connected. The series first season is telecasted on January 13, 2022.
Peacemaker Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
Initially at Season 1, no other cast member has been announced other than John Cena. John Cena is playing Peacemaker, you better keep a close eye, or you won’t be able to watch him at all in the show. If you don’t know what I am saying, let me give you a hint, he and Drax have somewhat similar capabilities.
Jokes apart, Professional wrestler John Cena is a sixteen-time WWE world champion; you guys can go on and have a debate on WWE in the comment section. Peacemaker is a guy who can do anything to maintain peace; he can even kill. The makers have revealed not much about the character, but Cena called him “douchey Captain America,” now you can create an image in your mind.
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

Peacemaker Season 2 Storyline: What is exactly it about?
First of all, it is a sign that the Suicide Squad is gonna be big! Second of all, we got to know that Cena delivered a scene-stealing performance in The Suicide Squad, and Warner Bros just can’t get over that. So they decided to give the guy his own series, cool!
James also tweeted about the movie’s name change, Suicide Squad on his twitter handle. He thanked Todd Seavey (Eternals) on his tweet.
James Gunn, who has a tight schedule nowadays, said that fans can get to know the Peacemaker‘s origin and why he is the way he is. They can decide for themselves if he is a hero or a douche bag but what is certain is that they are in for some laughter. Some fans are speculating that this series can also act as a prequel of The Suicide Squad. So this is what you can expect from the show.
Peacemaker Season 2 Plot: What will happen?
Even though the first season of the show depicted the Peacemaker’s voyage to joining the secretive A.R.G.U.S. after being wounded in the events of The Suicide Squad, the show’s creators have yet to tease a prospective Peacemaker season 2 plot.
Peacemaker Season 2 Trailer: When can we watch it?
Only the announcement have been revealed to the audience; this means that fans have to wait for a long time to get a trailer. We will update you about the Peacemaker trailer as soon as the word comes out; however, Don’t expect it before the end of 2022.
