We may not have seen a single episode of James Gunn’s Vredemaker, but the director has already revealed that he will be happy to return and make another season of the show if allowed. While renewals of any series will depend solely on how well the current one performs, in an interview with Screen rant, Gunn had fun when asked if he would like to make more seasons of the show. While joking that he has plans to make Vredemaker until he and star John Cena are very old, the director has also made it clear that everyone involved in the series will soon be welcoming a return.
“We’d outlined 87 seasons. Yes, we’re going to do that until John and I are 150 years old,” Gunn said. “But yes, no, we all want to continue. We really want to continue. It was the largest group of people. Of course I was already friends with John and Jenn [Holland], of course, and Steve Agee. But Danielle [Brooks] and Chuk [Iwuji] – [Chuk] is one of my best friends. Chuk is one of the primary characters now in Guardians 3, and he killed it on this movie. So, it was just, really, a wonderful group of people and I can not wait to work with them again. “
