DC Studios Co-Chair James Gunn Confirms The Season 1 PEACEMAKER Characters Making The Leap To Season 2 DC Studios Co-Chair James Gunn Confirms The Season 1 PEACEMAKER Characters Making The Leap To Season 2

Peacemaker season 1 was firmly set in Zack Snyder's DCEU but season 2 will occur in the newly-created DCU from James Gunn and Peter Safran. Here are the season 1 characters carrying over.

Recently, DC Studios co-chair James Gunn has revealed that he's written the 8th and final episode of season 2 of Peacemaker, meaning cameras on the unexpectedly popular Max show should begin rolling soon...

However, filming on season 2 may have to wait until Superman: Legacy wraps production if Gunn intends to remain on as showrunner and doesn't delegate those duties to a replacement.

Previously, Gunn teased (via social media) that he has a plan for how to explain the show's shift from the DCEU to the DCU and that he intentionally decided to make season 2 a continuation of season 1 (rather than a reboot) because working on the show is his "favorite thing to do."

That said, Gunn also explained that the show's shift from the DCEU to the DCU won't be the main focal point of season 2, stating that he doesn't want the "universal shift to be that big a part of the story."

Recently, Gunn has revealed [via Threads] that the following characters from season 1 will be making the leap to season 2:

Rotten Tomatoes gave the DCEU series a 94% approval rating, making it one of the most critically lauded productions of the franchise. In addition to Gunn's involvement, this positive reception likely played a key factor in the show's continuation and the decision to keep most of the show's main cast intact. 

Will you be tuning in to Peacemaker season 2? Let us know in the comment section below.

 Peacemaker explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of James Gunn's 2021 film The Suicide Squad—a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

The 8-episode television show was created by James Gunn for the, "then-named" streaming service HBO Max.

The show stars John Cena as Christopher Smith / Peacemaker, Danielle Brooks as Leota Adebayo, Freddie Stroma as Adrian Chase / Vigilante, Chukwudi Iwuji as Clemson Murn, Jennifer Holland as Emilia Harcourt, Steve Agee as John Economos and Robert Patrick as August "Auggie" Smith. Dee Bradley Baker voices Peacemaker's pet bald eagle, Eagly.

Loved the big titty cow aliens.
FlopWatchers5 - 2/11/2024, 1:12 PM
Excellent creative choices so far. Absolutely love it 👍🏾

Based. You wish your Disney plus shows were anywhere close to this good. Let Gunn COOK.

@McMurdo -

You have Disney derangement syndrome. 🤡🤡
McMurdo - 2/11/2024, 6:32 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - is that why I adore Wandavision and Loki s1? And Mando S1 and 2? Sounds like you simply can't cope 🤡

@McMurdo - Echo and SI made me fast forward a whole superhero show.

This show prevented me from fast forwarding even the opening credits.

Let that sink in Marvel shills

Just glad Stroma is returning. Dude was gold last season.
lazlodaytona - 2/11/2024, 2:03 PM
I sure wish they'd keep going with DOOM PATROL. I freaking loved that show.
vectorsigma - 2/12/2024, 5:09 AM
@lazlodaytona - I really hope so too. Man tears were shed in the last episode with Robotman.
lazlodaytona - 2/12/2024, 5:27 AM
@vectorsigma - It's crazy. Brendan Fraiser like disappeared for almost 2 decades and out of nowhere he's cast as Robotman. He was so freaking hilarious! I'm not a fan of lots of swearing but every stinkin' time he'd see something weird and said "what the [frick]" I'd die laughing. For 4 seasons it never got old to me :D

(best scene of the whole show was when Robotman had a rat in his head and they all decided to have group therapy. That segment was EPICALLY hilarious)
vectorsigma - 2/12/2024, 7:43 AM
@lazlodaytona - haha, lol, same. I always crack up on his swearing.

My favorite part is tue flex mentallo powers, im not a comics guy so not sure if he is from the comics with those powers

I really hope they have this group in the dcu, will miss them

I’m really curious to see how they exist in a brand new universe. So peacemaker season 1 is the only DCEU product to exist in the DCU so technically Peacemaker season 1 should be the first thing to watch when you do a rewatch of the DCU in chrono order.
LSHF - 2/11/2024, 3:51 PM
@Order66 - What about The Suicide Squad? Hell, there are even scenes from the movie that are referenced in season 1.
bkmeijer1 - 2/11/2024, 4:10 PM
@Order66 @LSHF - yeah, Peacemaker is a direct follow-up to TSS. Think the show will give an explanation of how canon the events of those two are to the new universe though
Order66 - 2/11/2024, 4:23 PM
@bkmeijer1 - yea technically the suicide squad is first lol forgot peacemaker is a follow up to tss
EskimoJ - 2/11/2024, 2:41 PM
Enjoyed the first season quite a bit.

Not really understanding these "meh" responses aside from just hopping on the train, but to each their own.

Did anyone think Holland wouldn't come back? It's not as if she needs to work.....but then again people are hardly lining up to hire her
bkmeijer1 - 2/11/2024, 4:09 PM
Think it'd be pretty funny if Peacemaker is the only character to remember the old universe, and nobody believing him is a recurring gag in the show
Deklipz - 2/11/2024, 4:34 PM
@bkmeijer1 - This would be an awesome way to deal with it.
LSHF - 2/11/2024, 10:52 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Excellent. Maybe they will believe he is imagining it like he keeps thinking he's seeing his name dead Dad.
bkmeijer1 - 2/12/2024, 2:23 AM
@LSHF - hadn't thought of that of yet, but that fits pretty well
gtabreaker - 2/11/2024, 5:07 PM
Can't wait to start watching.
Forthas - 2/11/2024, 6:21 PM
So pretty much the entire cast of James Gunn's friends and wife!

SHOCKING I tell you!!!!!

valmic - 2/11/2024, 6:40 PM
So technically theyre keeping the snyderverse alive. This and Waller are, technically part of that universe. Even when they cross over it doesn't change that fact.
Skestra - 2/11/2024, 8:45 PM
LSHF - 2/12/2024, 10:14 AM
@Skestra - Dee-dee, dee dee dee.

Or something like that.
Nolanite - 2/11/2024, 8:58 PM
Just this one show automatically beats every and all shows that the Emm She Ewe has put out.
The opening portion of Cena dancing around like an idiot is pure comedy and the greatest thing ever made within the realm of comic book history.
Nolanite out
