Peacemaker is definitely the best DC series, simply because of its hilarious plot, brilliant cast, and genius creator James Gunn. The series serves as a sequel to Gunn’s The Suicide Squad and it follows the title character Peacemaker aka Christopher Smith (John Cena) as he is given a secret assignment by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis). The series sees Peacemaker team up with returning characters from The Suicide Squad, Emilia Harcourt (Jennifer Holland) and John Economos (Steve Agee), while also adding more great characters like Leota Adebayo (Danielle Brooks), Vigilante aka Adrian Chase (Freddie Stroma), and Auggie Smith aka White Dragon (Auggie Smith). Peacemaker Season 1 came to an end with some of the most outrageous moments ever seen, and also the brilliant series was renewed for a second season. So, while you wait for Peacemaker Season 2 to come out here are some shows you should watch while waiting.
