‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 was confirmed to be in development in February 2022. Since then, a lot has changed, the most drastic change definitely being DCEU transitioning into DCU under the leadership of Gunn and Safran. While a lot of projects are scheduled to be released as a part of phase 1, aptly titled “Gods & Monsters,” fans have long wondered where Peacemaker’ fits into it all.
We know that the show was in pre-production for a long time, and the cast remained pretty much consistent. John Cena stars as Peacemaker, a government agent committed to achieving peace at any cost. Steve Agee plays John Economos, the warden at Belle Reve Penitentiary. Danielle Brooks portrays Leota Adebayo, a member of the Suicide Squad. Jennifer Holland is Emilia Harcourt, an A.R.G.U.S. agent closely working with the Squad. Freddie Stroma takes on the role of Vigilante, a character with a penchant for lethal justice.
Now Danielle Brooks has an exciting update for fans of the show, speaking with Deadline concerning the production of Season 2; if her estimates are correct, Peacemaker will start production hopefully this year.
James Gunn, when asked, confirmed that the second season of ‘Peacemaker’ will take place within the same continuity as the rest of the DCU projects.
James Gunn shared a video on Threads of John Cena playing Queen on the piano between takes on ‘Peacemaker,’ and a fan with the username durell.randle asked the director if Season 2 would take place in the ‘new DCU/new continuity’ or if the change would at least be addressed before they just jump into action.
To the joy of many fans, James Gunn answered both questions by saying: ‘Yes and yes.’
Obviously, that means two things. One – ‘Peacemaker’ will be a part of the DCU, much like ‘Waller’ – a show about Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller that’s expected to be released in 2024.
And, two – it won’t just be a hard-cut transition into the DCU without an explanation – the transition will be addressed in the show. Gunn also gave us an estimated release window, saying that ‘Peacemaker’ will return after ‘Superman: Legacy.’
