After being introduced in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad last year, John Cena’s Peacemaker returns in his own spin-off show in 2022.

That show, unsurprisingly titled Peacemaker, has made its debut on HBO Max but fans have been left wanting more after only three episodes were released on launch day.

As a result, many have been left asking when episode 4 of Peacemaker will arrive and how many episodes the series will have in total.
