PEACEMAKER: HBO Max Boss Reveals When THE SUICIDE SQUAD Spinoff Premieres On The Streaming Service

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn is currently shooting Peacemaker in Vancouver, Canada, and we now know when the spinoff series starring John Cena (Bumblebee) will arrive on HBO Max. Check it out...

The Suicide Squad arrives in theaters, and on HBO Max, this August. When writer and director James Gunn had some spare time during lockdown, he decided to pen a spinoff revolving around John Cena's Peacemakerand the streaming service agreed to make it! Cameras are currently rolling in Vancouver, Canada, and we finally know when we'll be able to watch it!

Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO boss Casey Bloys confirmed that Peacemaker will kick off 2022.

"I just started to get involved with the DC content in August," he told the trade. "Peacemaker is one of the first shows I greenlit and one of the first shows coming out, in January 2022."

That's quite a bombshell to randomly drop in an interview, but good news for us as we finally have an ETA. Gunn has yet to comment on these plans, but the filmmaker is busy actually shooting the thing! 

While details about Peacemaker are being kept under wraps, the series will explore the origins of the character that Cena will play in the upcoming film; a man who believes in peace at any cost - no matter how many people he has to kill to get it. HBO Max has given a straight-to-series order of eight episodes for the first season of the show. John Cena will reprise his role from The Suicide Squad, while Gunn will write all eight episodes of Peacemaker and direct multiple episodes, including the first.

We'll hopefully have more to share with you on this one soon!
