HBO Max has shared the first footage from the upcoming Peacemaker series, though it was definitely a very brief sample.
During the 73rd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday night, HBO Max shared a new promotional video for upcoming content. Mixed in there was a few seconds of Peacemaker, and it’s clear he never takes off his costume… we mean uniform.
At this point the Peacemaker release date is simply being listed as “January 2022.” With DC FanDome only a few weeks away, hopefully, we’ll get some more information as to the exact premiere date at that time. The series is slated for eight episodes on HBO Max with James Gunn having written the entire series and directing five of the episodes.
John Cena will reprise his role from the film in the series. Other actors include Steve Agee, Danielle Brooks was later added, and then two more got the nod including Jennifer Holland and Robert Patrick. Another round of cast additions were announced in Dec. 2020 including Chukwudi Iwuji (When They See Us) as a series regular, while Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale), Annie Chang (Shades of Blue), and Christopher Heyerdahl (Togo) were added as recurring guest stars. In May 2021 it was announced that Freddie Stroma would replace Chris Conrad in the role of Vigilante. Elizabeth Faith Ludlow and Rizwan Manji were added in early February, and were joined by Nhut Le as Judomaster later in the month. The last round of announced additions included Alison Araya and Lenny Jacobson as a married couple named Amber and Evan and will appear on a recurring basis.
