The wait is finally over for fans of James Gunn's 'The Suicide Squad', as the spin-off series finally has a home on Irish and UK shores.

'Peacemaker' is coming exclusively to Sky and NOW later this month. All eight episodes of the first series, which began in January over in the US, will be available on March 22.

A spin-off series written and directed by 'The Suicide Squad' director James Gunn catches up with John Cena's titular comic book character weeks after his rather explosive exit from the film. Following on from the film's post-credits scene, the series sees Peacemaker be forced to join another mysterious squad called "Project Butterfly".

We'll also see the origins of the character who believes in peace at any cost - no matter how many people he has to kill to get it.

The series sees Cena reprise his role as the comical yet headstrong (and physically strong) Peacemaker, with Danielle Brooks, Freddie Stroma, Jennifer Holland, Steve Agee, Chukwudi Iwuji and Robert Patrick also co-starring.

Following its initial release in the US earlier this year, 'Peacemaker' received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics and viewers. Currently sitting on a 94% approval rate on Rotten Tomatoes, the series was greenlit for a second season. James Gunn is also on board to direct and write all episodes.

While this spin-off has proven a success for Warner Bros. and HBO Max, the potential for a sequel film to 'The Suicide Squad' is currently unknown. The fresh take on the anti-hero premise (and an attempt to make everyone forget about the abysmal 'Suicide Squad' from 2016) proved to be a box office failure. However, Gunn has already said he's got ideas for a sequel and a number of other TV spin-offs, should his creative mind be needed.

All episodes of 'Peacemaker' will be available via Sky Max and streaming service NOW on Tuesday, March 22.
