HBO Max Renews DC Comic’s Peacemaker for a Second Season


Today, HBO Max has confirmed that James Gunn’s new DC Comics television series, Peacemaker, is getting a second season. News of season 2 came by way of the director’s Twitter account, who thanked producer Peter Safran, lead actor John Cena, the cast and crew, and all of the fans for the support.


For anyone that is interested in Peacemaker, but hasn’t heard of it, check out the official synopsis for the show right down below:

Peacemaker explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad – a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it!

The series stars John Cena as Peacemaker, Danielle Brooks as Adebayo, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, Jennifer Holland as Harcourt, Chukwudi Iwuji as Murn, Steve Agee as Economos and Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith.

Gunn wrote all eight episodes of Peacemaker and directed five, including the first. Gunn, Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers on the series, with Cena as co-executive producer. Based on characters from DC, Peacemaker is produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Peacemaker’s first season is currently airing on HBO Max. For more information on season 2, be sure to check back to Twinfinite for any updates.
