Peacemaker Season 2 Release date: When will it premiere?
It won’t be until 2025 that we can expect the release of Peacemaker season 2, as James Gunn is currently focused on his upcoming project, Superman Legacy.
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

But don’t despair! Gunn has confirmed Peacemaker season 2 multiple times and is set to direct and write all the episodes of the new season.
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.
Peacemaker Season 1 Recap:
The series centers around Christopher Smith, also known as Peacemaker, who manages to survive The Suicide Squad ordeal despite suffering from a broken collarbone. Technically, he is still a fugitive with 26 years of imprisonment left, but he can sidestep that sentence by working for Clemson Murn, the leader of another Task Force. Amanda Waller is his direct superior. Peacemaker’s team consists of Harcourt, his handler, Economos, in charge of “tech and tactics,” and the newest addition, Leota Adebayo, responsible for just about everything else.
Throughout the season, Peacemaker and his team join forces to thwart a dangerous threat called Project: Butterfly. Along their journey, they encounter unforeseen challenges and mind-boggling revelations, both of which put their loyalty to each other and their mission to the ultimate test.
Peacemaker Season 1 Review:
Peacemaker Season 1 has garnered critical acclaim, receiving rave reviews from critics. Writer-director James Gunn is given full creative freedom, allowing his freak flag to fly high. Peacemaker expands on the gritty and raunchy action of The Suicide Squad, delivering eight episodes filled with profanity, electrifying stadium rock, and visceral body horror. However, what truly sets Peacemaker apart is its ability to intertwine all these elements in an engaging and emotional character-driven drama.
Peacemaker Season 1 Rating:
The show has achieved an impressive 94% “certified fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics praising John Cena’s stellar performance and hailing the series as a bloody good time.
