Watch the new Peacemaker trailer

PEACEMAKER explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of Gunn’s 2021 film “The Suicide Squad”– a compellingly vainglorious man who believes in peace at any cost, no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

Written by James Gunn, who also directed five of the eight episodes, the follow-up to The Suicide Squad will focus on John Cena’s character from the film and further flesh out the DC Extended Universe.

John Cena in the lead role, the Peacemaker series will also star Steve Agee (The Suicide Squad, Superstore), Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black, Close Enough), Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Perry Mason) as Auggie Smith, Jennifer Holland (Brightburn, American Horror Story) as Emilia Harcourt, and Chris Conrad (Perpetual Grace, LTD., Patriot) as Vigilante.

Additional cast includes Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale), Chukwudi Iwuji (The Underground Railroad), Annie Chang (Shades of Blue), Christoper Heyerdahl (Hell on Wheels, Supernatural), Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (The Walking Dead), Rizwan Manji (Goliath),  Nhut Le (The Kroll Show) as DC hero Judomaster, Aison Araya (Arrow) as Amber, and Lenny Jacobson (Nurse Jackie) as Evan.
