Peacemaker Season 2: James Gunn Reveals Release Window
James Gunn has confirmed that the second season of ‘Peacemaker’ won’t debut until after the release of ‘Superman: Legacy’. In response to a Twitter user, Gunn revealed that Season 2 of Peacemaker is “just postponed” as the DC executive works on ‘Superman: Legacy’ and ‘Waller’ first. In this article, we will discuss the release window provided by Gunn and everything else we know about the show’s upcoming season.
Peacemaker turned out to be one of the biggest successes in the entirety of the DCEU in terms of fan engagement. Last year, it ended its first season with an action-packed finale that became the best-performing episode of any HBO Max original program. HBO Max confirmed the follow-up season in February 2022, with James Gunn releasing a statement to mark the announcement.
Peacemaker Season 2: Not on the DCU Chapter 1 Slate
The show’s second season did not appear on the mapped-out DCU Chapter 1 slate that Gunn revealed. This caused fans to wonder if it had been scrapped. The show is still very much alive, but it can’t receive a second installment due to the priority of other projects in the upcoming DCU.
James Gunn Reveals Peacemaker Season 2 Release Window
DC co-CEO and Peacemaker showrunner James Gunn confirmed via Twitter that Season 2 of Peacemaker won’t debut until after the release of Superman: Legacy. Fans can expect to see it sometime after the summer of 2025.
When Will ‘Waller’ Release?
Another fan asked Gunn about ‘Waller’, the Peacemaker spin-off about Viola Davis’ titular character. Gunn tweeted back at the fan and said, “If it’s done in time, yes.” This further confirms that the events in ‘Waller’ are supposed to take place between the first two seasons of ‘Peacemaker’.
When Will Peacemaker Season 2 Premiere?
At the moment, it seems as though Peacemaker Season 2’s release date is really dependent on when ‘Waller’ comes out. If the spin-off is finished in enough time to be released before ‘Superman: Legacy’, then fans can probably expect to see Season 2 of Peacemaker sometime in fall 2025, since Superman fills the summer slot. If ‘Waller’ isn’t able to come out before Superman, then it will likely be in that fall 2025 slot, which would most likely push Season 2 of Peacemaker back into early 2026.
Why Is the Release Pushed Back?
The reason for the delay is mainly James Gunn’s busy schedule. He’s currently working on multiple projects within the DCU, the biggest of which being ‘Superman: Legacy.’ When fans will actually see Peacemaker again hinges on whether Gunn is directing the Superman movie or not.
Is Peacemaker Canceled?
Gunn confirmed that Peacemaker Season 2 is not canceled, it’s just postponed while he works on other projects. Both ‘Superman: Legacy’ and ‘Waller’ were announced as a part of Gunn’s DCU unveil, with the DC Studios headman writing Legacy while Waller is headed up by Jeremy Carver and Christal Henry.
Peacemaker Season 2: Directed by James Gunn?
It’s unclear whether Gunn wants to be as involved in Peacemaker Season 2 as he was in Season 1, but if he does, it will push the release date back even further. So, if Gunn directs ‘Superman: Legacy’ (like his partner Peter Safran wants him to), Peacemaker Season 2 gets handed off to another creative team with Gunn in an advisory role.
When Can We Expect Peacemaker Season 2?
Seeing as Waller (along with Creature Commandos) are supposedly set to release as a bit of a DCU appetizer before it officially kicks off with ‘Superman: Legacy’, audiences could expect to see Peacemaker return sometime in late 2024, at the absolute earliest. 2025 or 2026 seem more likely.
In conclusion, James Gunn has confirmed that Peacemaker Season 2 won’t debut until after the release of ‘Superman: Legacy.’ However, fans can expect the show to return sometime in the future. Gunn’s busy schedule is the primary reason for the delay, and it will depend on the release of ‘Waller’ and whether he’ll be directing ‘Superman: Legacy’ or not.
