In the last few weeks, a lot has been going on inside Warner Bros. Discovery, especially regarding HBO Max. Six movies and television shows were pulled from the streaming subscription service’s portfolio almost immediately and quietly. According to reports, the production of the film, Batgirl, has been halted, and the movie is expected never to be released.

Many of Warner Bros.Discovery’s plans have been kept under wraps, which has sparked a dispute on social media over whether some other projects, such as Peacemaker Season 2, are safe from cancellation. But James Gunn has revealed fascinating new information about the HBO Max series and its forthcoming season.
Peacemaker 2 Is Under Development
Season 2 of Peacemaker is presently in development, according to Variety’s source, and it doesn’t appear to be canceled anytime soon. A social media post from the Guardians of the Galaxy director indicates that not all DC projects, including the second season of an HBO Max favorite, are under consideration for cancellation.
“Calm down,” Gunn tweeted in response to a fan’s question about the show before posting an image of Jennifer Holland filming the show’s second season. As Emilia Harcourt, a character who Holland first played in the film Suicide Squad, Holland reprises her role.
Now that Peacemaker Season 2 is safe for the time being, viewers may turn their attention to what is no longer safe at HBO Max. According to IGN, Warner Bros. Discovery just decided to suspend filming on Batgirl and instead broadcast the movie on HBO Max or in cinemas. Actress Leslie Grace was set to play the title character and was expected to make a big splash with the project.
As a well-known singer, Grace currently stars in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights film adaption. Coincidentally, HBO Max is presently airing In the Heights, which I just discovered. The planned Scooby-Doo holiday special, Scoob! : Holiday Haunt was also canceled on the same day as Batgirl on HBO Max. It appears that the WarnerBros.Discovery merger is not going as well as expected.
Season 2 of Peacemaker, on the other hand, was renewed in February of 2022 and appears to be in production at the moment. Christopher Smith, an alias Peacemaker, is played by John Cena, reprising his role from James Gunn’s debut film in the DC Extended Universe, Suicide Squad.

As a result of the first season of Peacemaker’s debut in January, HBO Max swiftly renewed it for a second season, making it one of the network’s most-watched shows. The Witches, Moonshot, Superintelligence, An American Pickle, and Locked Down, have all been pulled from HBO Max in the last few weeks. In December 2022, Gunn will release The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+.
