Danielle Brooks, who stars as Leota Adebayo in the superhero show, teased that Season 2 was happening but was unsure when they would start filming.

“It’s happening,” Brooks told Deadline at the Critics Choice Awards red carpet. “That’s all I know. It’s happening. When? Not quite sure.”

Max ordered a second season of Peacemaker ahead of its first season finale following a strong debut on the streaming platform. The series follows the escapades of Peacemaker, a role that Cena originated on Gunn’s 2021 film The Suicide Squad. Peacemaker is a vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

The cast of the show also includes Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

Gunn wrote all eight episodes of Peacemaker and directed five, including the first one. Gunn, Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers on the series, with Cena as co-executive producer and Stacy Littlejohn as consulting producer. Based on characters from DC, Peacemaker is produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.
