Peacemaker season 2 will still be going ahead after fellow DC offering Batgirl was cancelled by Warner Bros, director James Gunn has said.

The Guardians of the Galaxy director assured fans the series would not be pulled from the network.

After a fan tweeted: “Is ‘Peacemaker’ Season 2 safe?” Gunn responded: “Yes, guys, calm down.”

He also posted a photo of Jennifer Holland, who plays Emilia Harcourt in the show, behind the scenes.

Based on the DC comic of the same name, Peacemaker also stars John Cena, Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Chukwudi Iwuji, Steve Agee, and Robert Patrick.

The first season premiered earlier this year and is the first DC Extended Universe television series and a spin-off from the 2021 film The Suicide Squad.

It seems fans were left wondering about the show’s future after Batgirl was abruptly dropped by Warner Bros.

Yes, guys, calm down.

The studio decided they would not be releasing it on any platform, despite the project being almost completed.

A spokesperson said: ‘The decision to not release Batgirl reflects our leadership’s strategic shift as it relates to the DC universe and HBO Max. Leslie Grace is an incredibly talented actor and this decision is not a reflection of her performance.

‘We are incredibly grateful to the filmmakers of Batgirl and Scoob! Holiday Haunt and their respective casts and we hope to collaborate with everyone again in the near future.’

The star-studded blockbuster boasted a stellar cast, with In The Heights actress Leslie Grace playing the titular superheroine alongside the likes of Michael Keaton, Brendan Fraser, and JK Simmons.
