James Gunn Reveals First Photo From John Cena’s ‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 As Production Begins

Peacemaker is back!

James Gunn Peacemaker Season 2

After a two-year hiatus, Peacemaker is back in production for its second season, with DC Studios co-head James Gunn at the helm. Announcing the start via Instagram, Gunn shared a reflective selfie in Peacemaker’s iconic helmet, captioned with “Day 1 S2. 🧜‍♂️” — a callback to a favorite emoji from the first season, representing a spectrum of emotions.

James Gunn’s Peacemaker Season 2 return comes amid a busy schedule, likely taking a brief pause from his work on Superman, as evidenced by Superman actor David Corenswet also being spotted in a commercial shoot. Check out the first behind-the-scenes photo from Season 2 below.

James Gunn, who created and directed the first season of Peacemaker, is returning to direct the second season alongside three additional directors. The show, starring John Cena as the title character he first played in 2021’s The Suicide Squad, also features Danielle Brooks, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Peacemaker Season 2 and the Amanda Waller series switch release dates

James Gunn recently noted that the development of the Amanda Waller series is coming along nicely, though its schedule has been impacted by the recent Hollywood strikes and will premiere after Peacemaker Season 2. Waller was featured in the first season of the series, with Viola Davis reprising her role as the creator of Task Force X.

Created by writer Joe Gill and artist Pat Boyette, Peacemaker was introduced as a member of Task Force X, a team of supervillains who are sent on a dangerous mission by the government. The character is known for his extreme dedication to peace, even if it means resorting to violence to achieve it. His series picks up right after the events of The Suicide Squad.
