Danielle Brooks Says Production On Peacemaker Season 2 Starts This Year Hopefully

Confirmation of ‘Peacemaker’ Season 2’s development came in February 2022, amid significant changes as the DCEU transitioned into the DCU under Gunn and Safran’s leadership. With numerous projects scheduled for release in phase 1, titled “Gods & Monsters,” fans have eagerly anticipated the placement of ‘Peacemaker’ in this evolving landscape.

Despite an extended pre-production phase, the cast, led by John Cena as Peacemaker, remained remarkably consistent. Steve Agee portrayed John Economos, the warden at Belle Reve Penitentiary, while Danielle Brooks embodied Leota Adebayo, a key member of the Suicide Squad. Jennifer Holland took on the role of Emilia Harcourt, an A.R.G.U.S. agent closely involved with the Squad, and Freddie Stroma played Vigilante, a character known for his inclination towards lethal justice.

In a recent update, Danielle Brooks shared exciting news about ‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 with Deadline. According to her estimates, production for the new season is anticipated to commence later this year, providing fans with a glimpse into what lies ahead for the show.

James Gunn has confirmed that the second season of ‘Peacemaker’ will be set in the same continuity as other DCU projects. In response to a fan’s query on Threads, accompanied by a video of John Cena playing Queen on the piano during ‘Peacemaker’ takes, user durell.randle asked if Season 2 would be part of the ‘new DCU/new continuity’ and if this change would be addressed before diving into the action.

To the delight of fans, James Gunn responded with a resounding ‘Yes and yes.’ This indicates two significant points: firstly, ‘Peacemaker’ will be integrated into the DCU, similar to ‘Waller,’ a forthcoming show centered around Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller expected to debut in 2024. Secondly, the transition into the DCU won’t be an abrupt shift without explanation; the show will address the change. Gunn also provided a tentative release timeframe, stating that ‘Peacemaker’ will return after ‘Superman: Legacy.’
