The final episode of Peacemaker will be released today on HBO Max (in the United States), but it will not be the last ever.
The strength of its great success, the series has in fact been renewed for a second season.
James Gunn will write and direct all the episodes, an even greater involvement than in the first season, where he was replaced in some episodes by Jody Hill , Rosemary Rodriguez and Brad Anderson . Here are his statements:
Creating Peacemaker was one of the best moments of my life, professionally and beyond, with John Cena and the incredible creative team around me, as well as our HBO Max partners. Seeing something we love so much getting the same love from the audience it was a wonderful experience. I can’t wait for people to find out where Team Peacemaker will go in season 2.
The protagonist John Cena adds:
I am incredibly proud and honored by [the audience’s] response to Peacemaker , and by the experience of playing this character. Thanks to James Gunn, Peter Safran, HBO Max, the crew and my cast mates who worked tirelessly to make this unforgettable series.
In all this, we still don’t know when the first season will arrive in Italy. Last month Gunn promised news, but there are no updates for now .
You’ll find the announcement for season 2 below.
That’s right, #Peacemaker is coming back for Season Two. Thanks to Peter Safran, @JohnCena, our incredible cast & crew, our wildly supportive & lovely friends at @HBOMax – and mostly all of you for watching! @DCpeacemaker pic.twitter.com/wZSZBivrDQ

An action adventure comedy
