With the season finale of Peacemaker coming up this Thursday, HBO Max is wasting no time in renewing the series for a second season. Following the launch of the show, the critically acclaimed and fan-favorite series written and directed by James Gunn, and starring John Cena is coming back for more.

According to the release from HBO, James Gunn will also write and direct all episodes for season two. Peacemaker debuted as the #1 new original streaming series for social engagement on Twitter, and remains the #1 original on HBO Max. If you haven’t seen Peacemaker, the logline goes like this:

PEACEMAKER follows the explosive escapades 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.

James Gunn has this to say about the show.

Creating Peacemaker has been one of the true highlights of my life, both professionally and otherwise, with John Cena and the incredible creative team around me, as well as our partners at HBO Max. To have something we all love so much be loved by the audience in turn has been a wonderful experience. I can’t wait for folks to see where Team Peacemaker goes in Season Two!

John Cena said this about the show and it’s renewal for season two.

I am incredibly honored and humbled by the response to Peacemaker and the experience of playing this character. Thank you to James Gunn, Peter Safran, HBO Max, the crew, and my castmates who worked tirelessly to make this unforgettable series.
