John Cena is returning as Peacemaker as there will be a second season of the Max series, Peacemaker.

James Gunn directed and wrote the first season of the show. The Peacemaker character, portrayed by Cena, got his own show after being part of The Suicide Squad, which was also written and directed by Gunn.

The first season premiered in January 2022. It was originally believed the second season will be filmed once Gunn is done filming Superman: Legacy. That has changed, as Gunn confirmed on Threads the second season will be filmed this summer:

“The source is kind of iffy but this is true 😂. John Cena shared this on Howard Stern last week. To answer your follow-up questions: yes, we’ll be shooting Superman & Peacemaker simultaneously; yes, I’ve written all the episodes; but, no, in the interest of getting the show out there I won’t be able to direct them all (only some); & yes, Waller’s still happening & Jeremy & Christal are hard at work writing great stuff, but the schedule was impacted by the strikes so it’ll come after Peacemaker”
