HBO Max cherishes Peacemaker with all its heart.
The streamer has renewed James Gunn’s DC Extended Universe action comedy for a second season.
Gunn and star John Cena announced the news on social media Wednesday.
The Suicide Squad spin-off series launched in January to strong reviews, with Cena reprising his role as the brutish-yet-charming government assassin Chris Smith/Peacemaker who’s paired with a team of fellow agents on a mission to save the world from an alien invasion.
“Creating Peacemaker has been one of the true highlights of my life, both professionally and otherwise, with John Cena and the incredible creative team around me, as well as our partners at HBO Max,” Gunn said in a statement. “To have something we all love so much be loved by the audience in turn has been a wonderful experience. I can’t wait for folks to see where team Peacemaker goes in season two!”
Peacemaker has been fantastic, folks, and I cannot wait both to see the season finale tomorrow, but now, also, where Season 2 takes the team.
