James Gunn shared a helmet selfie on Instagram to announce the production of Peacemaker season 2 has now started.

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad was excellent. Then again, he had already helmed two great Guardians Of The Galaxy films, not to mention the hilarious Super, so we knew he’d be able to juxtapose the violence and the humour well. 

When it was announced (and teased at the end of The Suicide Squad) that John Cena’s Peacemaker would be getting his own spin-off TV show, fans were cautiously excited but also a little worried about how the character would translate into a longer format. 

Well, Peacemaker, which debuted in 2022 was a hoot. From the wonderfully bonkers opening credits, which saw the entire cast do an extravagant dance number, to the even more bonkers narrative, the series was much better than anyone was expecting. 

A season 2 was promptly announced but with Cena and Gunn both having pretty full diaries, the scheduling was always going to be difficult. 

Gunn took to Instagram on Saturday (13 April) to share a selfie through Peacemaker’s very shiny helmet to announce that season 2 was now firmly in production. 

The first season starred Danielle Brooks, Chukwudi Iwuji, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee and Robert Patrick alongside Cena. And yes, that is the Chukwudi Iwuji who would join forces with Gunn again in Guardians Of The Galaxy 3, playing The High Evolutionary, one of the better Marvel villains in my humble opinion. 

Gunn was originally supposed to direct all the episodes in season two, but his busy schedule as the CEO of DC Studios put a stop to that. Gunn still wrote all episodes and will be directing some of the episodes, which are filming at the same time as Gunn’s Superman

With filming underway now, we’d expect Peacemaker season 2 to head to our screens next year, but we’ll make sure to let you know when it’s official.
