Peacemaker is back after his stint in The Suicide Squad, and he has some new friends to help him in his quest for peace.

With The Suicide Squad having finally been released, James Gunn has gone on to at last confirm that the Peacemaker series is a sequel. If you saw the film, you probably suspected as much, but it’s nice to finally have it confirmed.

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.

Peacemaker will debut on HBO Max on Jan. 13, 2022.
