Here we are, a few weeks before the arrival of James Gunn’s THE SUICIDE SQUAD, which features the debut of John Cena’s PEACEMAKER character. Someone who would kill for peace, just to let you know how dedicated he is to achieving it. With the upcoming movie set to put Peacemaker in a co-starring role with the other actors, we’ve finally been given an official release date for the PEACEMAKER prequel series, also written and mostly directed by James Gunn too.

Written during the lockdown from COVID-19, and filmed earlier this year, PEACEMAKER will be making its debut on HBO Max on January 16, 2022. The series getting a greenlight shows how much faith Warner Bros. and HBO Max has in the movie, let alone a show dedicated to a singular character. However, knowing the show is a prequel to the film might deter some people from tuning in on Sundays to watch the 8 episode series. At this time, the fate of Peacemaker in the movie is unknown, but we should hear more later.

Along with this announcement, it was revealed the first THREE episodes of the show will debut at once, with the subsequent five episodes airing weekly aftrewards. There isn’t much we can glean from the titles, but its fun knowing it’ll be 8 episodes across 6 total weeks! The titles are as follows:

  • A Whole New Whirled
  • Best Friends Never
  • Better Goff Dead

Catch John Cena debuting as PEACEMAKER in THE SUICIDE SQUAD on August 6 in theaters and on HBO Max (ad-free)!
