Created by James Gunn for HBO Max, Peacemaker is a superhero television series based on the DC Comics character of the same name. It is the first television series of DC Extended Universe and a spin-off of the 2021 film The Suicide Squad.
The show was ordered in September 2020 and casting was finished in the next few months. The series has received positive reviews from critics with particular praise towards John Cena’s performance and James Gunn’s direction and writing.
So, when is the second season releasing? What is the plot? Who would return to reprise their roles? Keep reading to know further details.
The first season of Peacemaker followed the story of the lead character’s journey to join the mysterious A.R.G.U.S. after being injured in the events of The Suicide Squad. However, the makers are yet to hint something about the plot of second season.
The Butterflies were defeated in the end of the season and the aftermath of the event could be shown in the upcoming season. Adebayo revealed the secrets of Task Force X and A.R.G.U.S. to the public and confirmed that the Butterflies were there and Peacemaker was framed for having knowledge about them.
Adebayo then outs her mother Amanda Waller as the mastermind behind the entire operation. So, this also puts a question mark in the future of the Suicide Squad, which would bring Peacemaker to conflict with his former boss.
Now coming to the cast, the actors who have a possibility of returning include John Cena, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Storma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee and Robert Patrick.
Peacemaker premiered on HBO Max on January 13, 2022 and it was renewed for another season in the following month. Now one thing is confirmed that we would not get to see Season 2 sometime in this year.
Considering the time needed for making the show, the second season could premiere sometime in 2023. We can expect it to have eight episodes like Season 1.
The makers of Peacemaker are yet to reveal a trailer for Season 2. We can still expect a teaser towards the end of 2022 or in the beginning of 2023. For now, you can watch the trailer of Season 1 below:
