I made a vow to have peace no matter how many people I have to kill to get it – Peacemaker

Christopher Smith, a.k.a. Peacemaker, came into our lives from nowhere in 2020. Earlier in the film, The Suicide Squad, Peacemaker was introduced as a self-righteous psychopath who wants to achieve “peace” by any means necessary. “I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women, and children I need to kill to get it,” says the peacemaker in the film.

Despite its mediocre performance at the box office, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad was a hit among fans and critics alike. It was surprising to see John Cena’s Peacemaker earn a spin-off series in a film where Idris Elba’s Bloodsport and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn shine. The eight-episode series follows Christopher Smith/Peacemaker on his new mission: Project Butterfly. The HBO spin-off series is coming to an end with its finale episode set to air on Thursday, February 17, 2022, on HBO Max.

So, will the peacemaker in a shiny little helmet and bright red uniform return for season two and disrupt the peace once again?

Here’s everything you need to know about Peacemaker Season 2:

Is there a season 2 of Peacemaker?

The show hasn’t been officially renewed yet. Though show creator James Gunn certainly has plans for a possible Season 2. “I’ve been going pretty hardcore for the last few years so we’ll have to see what’s next. But I want to do Peacemaker Season 2, so we’ll see what happens,” Gunn said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

The show would obviously feature the titular character, John Cena’s peacemaker/Christopher Smith. Season one fan favorite, Vigilante/Adrian Chase, is also expected to return.

Team commander Murn (Chukwudi Iwuji) and Auggie Smith/White Dragon are two characters that we will not be seeing in season 2 as both Murn and Auggie Smith/White Dragon (Robert Patrick) will not be there. They were killed off in the seventh episode.

James Gunn has teased that the season one finale contains some big, top-secret surprises. The final episode (Episode 8) is so closely guarded that he refused to let HBO Max send it to the press or several cast members. Peacemaker Episode 8 is called “It’s Cow or Never,” and the team needs to put an end to the Cow or the Butterflies will successfully conquer their planet. The finale, perhaps, will offer some clarity on John Cena’s Christopher Smith and his future in the DC Expanded Universe.

The show will be exclusively available on HBO Max. For now, you can gear up for the big fat finale of Peacemaker season one by watching the previous 7 episodes of Season 1 streaming on HBO Max.
