Peacemaker Scores a Second Season

Eight episodes just isn’t enough.

If you’ve been watching the debut season of HBO Max’s Peacemaker, you know we’re speaking true. James Gunn’s brilliantly deranged The Suicide Squad spinoff has managed to juggle an alien conspiracy plot, a kung fu revenge tale, an over-the-top family thriller and an occasionally heart-wrenching look at the complexities of family relationships and obligations—and it’s all worked perfectly. The much-anticipated season finale premieres tomorrow (or late tonight, if you want to get technical) and frankly, the thought of that being the end was making us cry—er, break into some face-muscle exercises.

So, we’re pretty ecstatic to hear that the series has been renewed for a second season, as shared today by both Gunn and Peacemaker himself, John Cena.

Episode 8 drops tonight at midnight PT, @keath. Hope you’re able to watch it before it gets spoiled.

I’m thrilled that Peacemaker has gotten a second season and even more thrilled and how well it has been received. The head of HBO Max said it’s the biggest show they have worldwide and THAT is great news for the future of DC on HBO Max.

A second spinoff of The Suicide Squad is also in the works for HBO Max, we’re getting a Penguin based spinoff after The Batman and most likely we’ll get a spinoff from Black Adam is well. All this plus a new season of Titans, Doom Patrol, Pennyworth and more plus HBO Max exclusive movies like Batgirl.

Say what you want about the demise of DC Universe but moving DC video content to HBO Max has greatly expanded the audience and we’re getting more than we ever would have had DC Universe remained in tact. The future is now and the future is bright!

Thanks, that’s what I thought! I’m usually pretty good at avoiding spoilers, but I think we all know the basic shape of the finale anyway. Can’t wait to see where season 2 goes!

That’s great news about more spinoffs to the movies. It think that’s a great format! (Is it too much to hope the Black Adam spinoff will be Ma Hunkel?) Would be awesome to do more kid friendly ones, too - maybe a spin off from Super-Pets if when it does well?

Now if only we could get them to resurrect Krypton. :wink:
