PEACEMAKER's HBO Max Premiere Date Revealed; First Three Episodes Will Arrive On The Same Day
Peacemaker's premiere date has been revealed, along with the news that the first three episodes will hit HBO Max on the same day. As if that's not exciting enough, we also have the titles for each of them!
The Suicide Squad arrives in UK cinemas this Friday and hits HBO Max and U.S. theaters a week later. Needless to say, there's a huge amount of excitement surrounding James Gunn's first DC Comics adaptation, and Warner Bros.' decision to move forward with a spinoff series, Peacemaker, proves just how confident they are in the film.
It's already been confirmed that the show will debut on HBO Max next January, but thanks to information shared on the DC Press Portal, we now know the specific premiere date.
Peacemaker will debut on January 16, 2022. Surprisingly, this is a Sunday, though the days of streaming shows like this landing on a Friday do seem to be a thing of the past as Disney+, for example, is all about Wednesdays now. Regardless, there will be three episodes arriving that day, with the other five following on a weekly basis.
This has become commonplace for some series, as multiple episodes of WandaVision and The Boys debuted before the rest followed.
As for the titles of those Peacemaker episodes:
- A Whole New Whirled
- Best Friends Never
- Better Goff Dead
While details about Peacemaker are being kept under wraps, the series will explore the origins of the character that Cena will play in The Suicide Squad, a man who believes in peace at any cost - no matter how many people he has to kill to get it. Gunn is directing episodes of the show, as are Jody Hill, Brad Anderson, and Rosemary Rodriguez.
