James Gunn’s ‘Peacemaker’ Renewed For A Second Season

Fans of ‘The Suicide Squad’ spin-off television show ‘Peacemaker’ got a bit of good news with the announcement that DC Films, Warner Media, and HBO Max are renewing the John Cena series for a second season.
“Eight episodes just isn’t enough,” DC Nation writes. “If you’ve been watching the debut season of HBO Max’s Peacemaker, you know we’re speaking true. James Gunn’s brilliantly deranged The Suicide Squad spinoff has managed to juggle an alien conspiracy plot, a kung fu revenge tale, an over-the-top family thriller and an occasionally heart-wrenching look at the complexities of family relationships and obligations—and it’s all worked perfectly. The much-anticipated season finale premieres tomorrow (or late tonight, if you want to get technical) and frankly, the thought of that being the end was making us cry—er, break into some face-muscle exercises.”
“I am incredibly honored and humbled by the response to Peacemaker and the experience of playing this character,” Cena said in a statement. “Thank you to James Gunn, Peter Safran, HBO Max, the crew and my castmates who worked tirelessly to make this unforgettable series.”
‘Peacemaker’ has been well-received with a Rotten Tomatoes critic score of 95% and an audience score of 88%. IMDb echoes that reception where the show sits at 8.5 out of 10 on their rating scale.
“We’re sure all sorts of speculation about what season two will focus on will start as soon as everyone’s seen this week’s finale, but one thing we know right now is that Gunn will be back, writing and directing all episodes of season two,” DC Nation continues.
James Gunn wrote all eight of the first season’s episodes and directed five. Episode four was directed by Jody Hill (‘The Foot Fist Way’), Rosemary Rodriguez (‘Silver Skies’) directed episode 5, and Brad Anderson (‘Session 9′) directed episode seven.
Peacemaker was created by Joe Gill and Pat Boyette. He made his comic book debut in the Charlton Comics’ spy-team title ‘Fightin’ 5′ in 1966. He would make his first DC Comics appearance in 1988 with a self-titled miniseries.
