We really wanted to taste it and now we can’t get enough.
WarnerMedia has renewed Peacemaker for a second season. John Cena will be back as Peacemaker while James Gunn will return to write and direct the entire season. That’s right, Gunn will helm all episodes of season 2 as opposed to directing just five of the eight episodes of the recently concluded first season.
Head of Original Content at HBO Max, Sarah Aubrey, released a statement on the renewal:
“The brilliance of James Gunn once again shines with ‘Peacemaker.’ He took this character, brought to life by the inimitable John Cena, and created an exceptional series that’s simultaneously thrilling, hilarious and heartfelt, showcasing the humanity beneath this team of misfits living in a superhuman world. As the first original DC show to have its series premiere on HBO Max, we are thrilled that the viewers agreed to give peace a f***ing chance.”
Gunn also released a statement:
“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. 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!”
Finally, Cena weighed in on the matter:
“I am incredibly honored and humbled by the response to ‘Peacemaker’ and the experience of playing this character. Thank you to James Gunn, Peter Safran, HBO Max, the crew, and my castmates who worked tirelessly to make this unforgettable series.”
No word yet on when season 2 of Peacemaker will begin filming or when it might on HBO Max. We’ll keep you posted.
