The second season of Peacemaker seemed inevitable as soon as it broke watching records on HBO Max. A winning mix of John Cena, James Gunn, and a computer-generated eagle named Eagly helped the show grow in popularity week after week.
“The brilliance of James Gunn once again shines with Peacemaker,” says HBO Max’s Head of Original Content Sarah Aubrey. A character developed by none other than John Cena, he created a series that is exhilarating, amusing, and touching all at the same time as it shows the humanity underlying this group of misfits living in a superhuman world. He is to be commended.
This is a huge honor for us as the first original DC show to launch on HBO Max, and we’re grateful to the audience for their support.
“I am tremendously honored and humbled by the reception to Peacemaker and the experience of playing this role,” John Cena said in a statement.
James Gunn released a statement in response to Deadline’s confirmation of a second season in February 2022.”Creating Peacemaker with John Cena and the amazing creative team around me, as well as our collaborators at HBO Max, has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.
It’s been a lovely experience to see something we all love so much be loved by the public as well. I can’t wait to see what happens to Team Peacemaker in Season 2 of the competition.”
The eight-episode run of the Suicide Squad spin-off included cameos from the Justice League. However, what can we expect from season two? As soon as you’ve got your guns, ammo, and tighty-whiteys ready, we’ve got all the information you need.
