Peacemaker is finally coming to the UK on March 22, 2022.
Peacemaker stars John Cena as the peace-obsessed antihero from The Suicide Squad, who finds himself heading up yet-another government task force. But while the show has been a huge success in the US, fans in the UK have been patiently waiting… until now.
All 8 episodes of the hit superhero show will be available on Sky MAX from March 22, allowing DC fans to binge Peacemaker as soon as it becomes available.
After the end of The Suicide Squad, Christopher Smith (aka Peacemaker) was recruited by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) to join the A.R.G.U.S. black ops squad, Project Butterfly. Their mission? To find and eliminate parasitic butterfly-like creatures who have taken human hosts around the globe.
Meanwhile, the controversial antihero will return in Peacemaker Season 2 which was recently confirmed by John Cena himself:
Learning about and eventually becoming #PEACEMAKER was an exercise in exploring the fun and absolutely genius mind of @JamesGunn. It’s been a privilege to work on this show and with the cast, crew and @hbomax team. Elated to say we’ll be back to create more peace for Season ✌️! pic.twitter.com/ujeeXODvOn

Additionally, one of Peacemaker’s characters will return for a major DC movie role according to director James Gunn:
“[Peacemaker] is part of the DCU, I mean they can use these characters,” he said. “I mean one of these characters, which people have kind of figured out, one of these characters is used in a future big DC movie that’s from here. So, we are connected to all of this.”
