Fans of peace, unite! James Gunn has recently to take to social media to confirm, not only is season 2 of Peacemaker being written, but it will address how the series will be canon in the new DCU!
Peacemaker was a breakout hit for the DC Universe, being one of their best received projects of all time. Sadly for fans, development on season 2 stalled following James Gunn becoming co-chair of DC Studios with Peter Safran. Now that the WGA strike is over, however, Gunn has confirmed work on season 2 has continued and that it will be canon to the new DCU:

It’s unclear exactly how James Gunn plans to square the circle of Peacemaker season 2 being canon in the DC Universe when season 1 isn’t. One potential explanation could be that the events of the show did happen, just not in the same way as they did in season 1, such as the Justice League not appearing in the show’s final minutes.
The future of the DC Universe
James Gunn and Peter Safran told journalists that their vision for the DC Universe includes locked scripts, wiggle room, and a unified storyline across film, television, animation, and video game projects. The two explained that the DC Universe could bring back elements from previous DC regimes, meaning that their eight-to-year plan is not a full reboot.
Shazam! Fury of the Gods, The Flash, Blue Beetle and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery, with all four DC Universe movies slated to hit theaters in 2023. Will the characters from those movies make appearances in the new DCU? Only Gunn and Safran know.
