The idea of a Waller-centric television show might sound strange at first, but it actually makes perfect sense with where her character arc is heading. If you recall the ending to the first season of “Peacemaker,” she was betrayed by her daughter Leota (Danielle Brooks), who publicly revealed the existence of Task Force X. This is bound to create major tension between the two, and we think it’s fair to speculate that Brooks will be among the “Peacemaker” crossovers.
The fact that it’s being overseen by Christal Henry and Jeremy Carver is also a good sign of things to come. Henry wrote the “Watchmen” episode “If You Don’t Like My Story, Write Your Own,” arguably one of the limited series’ best installments. Carver’s work on “Doom Patrol” is also worth being intrigued over, as the show is criminally underrated, poignant, and just straight-up weird. It also shows that the new DC bosses are apparently looking to maintain relationships with the creatives involved in the previous leadership.
“Waller” currently does not have a prospective filming or release date, although more details on it could be coming soon. Here’s to hoping that it’s a series that does justice to this entertaining and intriguing character, because it’s what Viola Davis deserves.
