TV Series Review: Peacemaker: Season 1 (2022)

Premiere Date: Jan 13, 2022
Genres: Comedy, Action
Network: HBO Max
Writer: James Gunn
Executive producers: James Gunn, Peter Safran, Matthew Miller
Cast: John Cena, Steve Agee, Jennifer Holland, Danielle Brooks, Robert Patrick, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji
PEACEMAKER explores the continuing story of the character that John Cena reprises in the aftermath of executive producer James 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!

The series stars John Cena as Peacemaker, Danielle Brooks as Adebayo, Freddie Stroma as Vigilante, Jennifer Holland as Harcourt, Chukwudi Iwuji as Murn, Steve Agee as Economos and Robert Patrick as Auggie Smith.

Gunn wrote all eight episodes of PEACEMAKER and directed five, including the first. Gunn, Peter Safran and Matt Miller serve as executive producers on the series, with Cena as co-executive producer. Based on characters from DC, PEACEMAKER is produced by Gunn’s Troll Court Entertainment and The Safran Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Holy Sheep! This series is so flocking awesome! I don't know where to begin...

First of all, I know nothing about the Peacemaker DC canon story. Suicide Squad 2 was the first time I'd seen the character. And I didn't really like him. I wasn't a big John Cena fan either. But the character was funny in that "Snort! I can't believe he said that!" way.

The trailer for Peacemaker Season 1 was full of action (it's pretty violent) and I never say no to a superhero movie/series. It is probably my favorite comic TV series now (sorry WandaVision!). The whole cast (primary and secondary) was amazing in their roles. The characters' development from misfit loners into a team was full of heart.

The writing! I now understand why Peacemaker is the way he is and it isn't pretty. The show didn't shy away from some harsh topics but it was balanced with brilliant dark comedy. And the hair-metal band music score was fun. And the opening credits are hilarious. And...and...I could gush about it all

Eagley wins best side-kick of the year.

Peacemaker Season 1 is a must-see.
