'Peacemaker' Release Schedule - When Do New Episodes Come Out?

Don't worry: there's more utterly wild superhero action coming soon.

Superhero shows aren't exactly uncommon these days. Marvel has had shows going for quite a while with the likes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter in addition to the Netflix world that includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and The Punisher, among others. In 2020, the MCU officially expanded to Disney+, bringing WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If...?, and Hawkeye all to TV. HBO Max got into the game too, bringing new seasons of shows like Doom Patrol and Titans. All of that, and yet...none of them are anything like Peacemaker, the spin-off of The Suicide Squad that's as vulgar and out there as anything on this side of The Boys—only Peacemaker actually holds the DC branding.

And if they released it right now on purpose—and let's be real, they probably did—it's a pretty genius move. There's no Marvel series currently running on Disney+ (the next will likely be Moon Knight or Ms. Marvel in February or March), so Peacemaker has the prestige streaming superhero landscape all to itself. And with its hard R-Rated vulgar style (jam-packed with graphic violence and sex scenes), it's doing the one sort of superhero show that Kevin Feige and company have not and will not do (at least until Deadpool finds his way back into that world).

People looking for just a taste of Peacemaker will get a big one—the show dropped its first three of a planned eight episode season all at once. We don't know at all if this is planned as a one-time limited series, or if writer/director James Gunn plans on telling even more story in the future. But what we know for certain is that we've got eight full episodes of this DC-set story—and it takes its one-of-a-kind star, and its one-of-a-kind creator, to tell a really one-of-a-kind story.

Here's when each episode of Peacemaker will come out, and more release details.
