The 25-year-old, from Peterborough in England, spent four seasons with the Giants after first signing back in 2009 and still sits fourth in the side's all-time leading points scoring charts.
During his time in Belfast, he racked up 225 points in 239 games played.
General Manager Todd Kelman, who was instrumental in Peacock's original signing, said he was delighted to see him make his return.
"We signed Peaks when he was just a kid and he has grown into one of the top British players in this league," he said.
We're excited to get him back in Belfast where he belongs and we hope to have him here for a long time.

Kelman added: "He is a natural scorer and has been a part of some big moments in Giants history, playing a key role on both Championship teams he has been a part of.
"I know our fans will be pleased to have him back in Belfast and I know he is excited to be coming back here."
The general manager also admitted that the timing couldn't be better, all things considered.
"We've been hit with some injury trouble and getting everything signed for Craig to be in the line-up this weekend is key for us, as we go up against two of the top teams in the league in Sheffield and Coventry," Kelman said.
The Belfast Giants face off against the Sheffield Steelers at 7pm on Saturday at the Odyssey Arena, before travelling to Coventry to face the Blaze on Sunday.
