Peacemaker is a rather odd DC live-action series. With James Gunn at the helm of this show, it has become quite the popular show for DC Studios. The numbers don’t lie on Rotten Tomatoes, with critics giving all eight episode of the first season 94% over 89 reviews, and even audiences were only a bit behind that at 89% over 1000+ ratings. Thus, you can fully understand why DC have a second season of this show in the works. You can also understand just why they’re busy snagging stars for that second season to boot. In particular, a new one has just joined up with the cast whose name might be familiar to fans of Marvel. Enter Frank Grillo.

Peacemaker Season 2: Frank Grillo Casting Details

In an Instagram post, James Gunn himself announced that Frank Grillo (who previously played Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) has joined the cast of Peacemaker season 2. Apparently, he will play the role of Rick Flag, Sr. in that show. Interestingly, this won’t be Grillo’s first time playing this character. He will play this very same character in the upcoming HBO Max series Creature Commandos, also from DC Studios. However, that will be an adult animated series. Grillo’s role in Peacemaker season 2 will be the first time he will play this character in live-action form. Thus, we will be expecting great things from Grillo, in both shows.

You can check out the full details of Frank Grillo and his Peacemaker season 2 casting below in the text accompanying James Gunn’s Instagram post:

Pleased to announce the great @frankgrillo1 will be reprising the role of Rick Flag, Sr – the role he’ll first play in animated form in Creature Commandos – throughout Season 2 of #Peacemaker. Christopher Smith and Rick Sr have a little unfinished business to take care of…

Creature Commandos will make its debut on Max sometime in late 2024. However, we have no idea when Peacemaker season 2 will make its debut. Only that it will be sometime after Creature Commandos. We’ll just have to wait for DC Studios to give us that info at a later date. Tune back in to THS to find out more about either show when we do.
