John Cena starring ‘Peacemaker’ has become a major surprise hit for the DC television universe. After a successful first season, the producers have announced that a second season is on the way!
It’s official: DC has found a new superhero in Peacemaker on whom they can rely. ‘Peacemaker’ is based on the lines of self-aware savagery of Deadpool in Marvel comics. It has become one of the most entertaining characters DC can now milk. The character was created by James Gunn and continued his journey after the DCEU film ‘Suicide Squad,’ which was also directed by James Gunn in 2021. It was a prequel to the film. After its initial release in January 2022, the series developed its own identity. The story of a jingoistic killing machine named Christopher Smith, who ironically goes by the name Peacemaker, caught the public attention. The demand for a second season has been high ever since the first season ended. Let’s see what HBO Max is planning regarding the future of the series.

‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 release date
Starring former WWE superstar John Cena in the titular role, the series took the story where it left in the events in ‘Suicide Squad’. Peacemaker is recovering from the injuries he suffered during that violent finale. The superhero joins a secret group named A.R.G.U.S. to get involved with the Project Butterfly to eliminate the danger posed by the parasitic butterfly-like creatures that threaten human existence.
The story progressed through dark humour and some solid emotional beats, and according to the reviewers, it gets better with each episode. The series, which lasted eight episodes, was cancelled in February 2022. HBO Max didn’t waste any time in capitalising on the show’s success, ordering a second season. All of the episodes will be written and directed by James Gunn, who will also serve as showrunner. His writing and direction received numerous accolades during the first season, restoring DC’s faith in the director, who previously directed the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ franchise for the MCU.
‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 cast
If everything goes right and the pandemic doesn’t mess up the timeline, the second season of ‘Peacemaker’ can drop sometime around summer 2023. James Gunn is fully focused on this project, which is probably under the writing stage as of now. So, the fans might have to wait for at least one full year from now to see ‘Peacemaker’ season 2. Most of the cast is expected to remain the same with some new additions since the second season will offer new challenges to the hero.
John Cena has found success earlier with films such as ‘The Wall’ and ‘The Marine’, but the success of ‘Peacemaker’ has made people look at him in a completely new light. His character is expected to become more intense and brutal in the second season.
Nothing has been revealed about the plot or cast of Season 2 of ‘Peacemaker’. We have to watch the trailer to get any information regarding that. Let’s wait and watch!
