“Peacemaker” has been filming in Vancouver, Canada for several months, but that’s finally come to a close as James Gunn took to Twitter to announce that the show has finished filming: “And that’s a wrap on Day 131 & Season One of #Peacemaker.” It’s interesting that he specifies “Season One” of the series — could a second season be on the way if the show is successful? Gunn will probably cross that bridge if it comes to it, but for now, it’s great to hear that work has finished on “Peacemaker.”
While the director and creator of the series didn’t offer any tidbits of information about what to expect from the series, Gunn did reveal that “Peacemaker” took under a year to come to fruition. As he explained on Twitter, “Less than a year ago I pitched a vague pitch to @HBOMax – here we are 11 months later with 8 astounding episodes in the can.” He also thanked everyone who has worked on the show so far: “Cast & crew: I love you all. Thank you for putting your hearts & souls into this project.”
“Peacemaker” is currently slated to start airing in January 2022, so it wouldn’t be surprising if James Gunn starts revealing snippets of footage or stills from the upcoming series after the release of “The Suicide Squad.” Who else is excited to see John Cena’s no-nonsense vigilante?
