The video game Twisted Metal is getting adapted into a television series so here is everything that we currently know about the adaptation of the video game, including its debut date and trailer, as well as its cast, plot, and other details.
The Twisted Metal video game series is a fan favorite on the PlayStation platform. The series debuted on the very first PlayStation console and has since been ported to almost every other gaming machine. The games are a lot of fun, even when they’re violent, and they’re a lot of fun to play with close friends and family. All of the games contain over-the-top vehicle mechanics and events.
Fans of the series will soon be able to watch a live-action adaptation of the wacky gaming phenomenon thanks to Peacock, who has been working on the project. According to reports, each episode of this comedy program would run for thirty minutes and was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who worked on the screenplay for Deadpool.
Here is everything that we know about the impending Twisted Metal television series so far, along with what fans of the video games may anticipate from the adaptation of the franchise.
Date of release for the Twisted Metal television series: When can we expect to see the show?
On July 27, Peacock will air the first episode of the Twisted Metal television series.

Trailer for the television series Twisted Metal
Have a look at the first trailer for the upcoming episode of Twisted Metal down below:
The promotional video depicts the man played by Anthony Mackie starting his automobile while Len’s song ‘Steal My Sunshine’ is playing on the radio. He then drives away while firing his machine guns. After that, we have a quick sight of the ravaged landscape of Las Vegas, and, more crucially, we see Sweet Tooth driving his ice cream truck.
Casting information for the television series Twisted Metal: Who will play the lead role?
The cast of the upcoming Twisted Metal television series is shaping out to be incredible and will include many A-list performers. Anthony Mackie, who is a part of the Marvel universe, will portray the part of John Doe, and Will Arnett, who is a part of the Marvel universe as well, will provide his voice to the role of the renowned clown Sweet Tooth. Samoa Joe, a professional wrestler, will portray the role physically on-screen.
Every Single Detail That Has Been Discovered Concerning the Twisted Metal Series
After the massive success of Super Mario Bros. Movie and HBO Max’s The Last of Us, it’s no surprise that streaming services, networks, and studios want to cash in on video game adaptations. But it looks like Peacock is way out in front, beating out the competition in the race to bring Twisted Metal to theaters this summer.
Twisted Metal, an adaption of the popular PlayStation game series of the same name, hopes to be the latest game to prove naysayers wrong and win over fans. What therefore may we anticipate from this next endeavor to be born from the intersection of pixels and polygons? Here’s everything we know about Twisted Metal, from the plot to the actors’ bios to the launch date.
EXPLAIN THE CONCEPT OF THE TWISTED METAL SERIES.
The PlayStation series on which Twisted Metal is based is known for its extreme vehicle combat and high levels of action. The first game in the series was released for the original PlayStation console by Sony in 1995, and since then there have been numerous sequels and spin-offs.
The official label for the 10-part series is “live-action comedy,” but it seems to be more of an adaptation of the spirit of the games than a literal recreation of any of the stories from them. The teaser trailer suggests the show won’t shy away from the mature, violent, high-octane shenanigans of the source material, as it features star Anthony Mackie reloading his double-barreled death dealer from behind the wheel of his muscle car, which is equipped with a pair of mounted machine guns that would make James Bond jealous.
Of course, considering that Mackie grabs the ammunition from a glove box stuffed to the brim with shotgun shells, then revs his vehicle and joyously jams out to Len’s “Steal My Sunshine,” it’s a safe guess the series will lean just as strongly into the dark humor of the games. We see a wide picture of Mackie’s vehicle rushing across a post-apocalyptic environment, and then we get a glimpse of Sweet Tooth, the killer clown who drives an ice cream truck, in a teaser that follows.
A motor-mouthed outsider is offered a chance at a better life, but only if he successfully delivers a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The trailer successfully piqued our interest — and ensured “Steal My Sunshine” will immediately be added to our Spotify playlists — but the official synopsis goes a bit deeper, offering a Mad Max-flavored description of Mackie’s John Doe and his perilous quest. A badass axe-wielding car thief is his only hope against ferocious marauders in vehicles of destruction and other hazards of the open road, such as a deranged clown in a recognizable ice cream truck.
In a statement, showrunner Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai) acknowledged that the action-packed games were a bit light on story and discussed how the show would supplement its expected elements with a deeper narrative and characterizations: “Yes, Twisted Metal has the cars, it has the weapons, and it has the battles. It also contains something else, though: people. I have complete confidence that you will grow attached to these people and the things that motivate them. This is an absolutely insane show about the separation and isolation that has resulted from our unique catastrophe. Yet, there is cause for optimism. You can locate your tribe and join its ranks. To get to them, you might have to overcome a scary clown in a heavily armed ice cream truck.
TWISTED METAL stars WHO?
Anthony Mackie, Steph Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church, Will Arnett, and Joe Seanoa are among the cast members of Twisted Metal. Mackie plays protagonist John Doe, and he appears to be having a blast in the part, judging by his brief appearance in the teaser. There may be more than one “John Doe” in the games, but it’s not obvious if Mackie’s interpretation has anything in common with the others.
Fans are more familiar with Sweet Tooth, the series’ renowned villain and de facto poster boy. Not one but two actors, Joe Seanoa (better known as wrestler Samoa Joe) and Will Arnett, will team up to play the show’s most prominent character.
While we only get a glimpse of these characters in the trailer, Smith gave us a little more insight into how they’ll be developed in the show: “You will cheer for our charismatic hero John Doe, played by Anthony Mackie, as he drives across the Divided States of America in search of a place to belong.” And our psychotic killer clown Sweet Tooth, played by wrestler Samoa Joe and voiced by Will Arnett, has a surprising depth of character.
The characters of Beatriz and Haden Church, who aren’t seen in the teaser, were fleshed out by Smith’s description.
“You’ll be in stitches as Stephanie Beatriz’s mysterious character, Quiet, completely upends John’s life following a fortuitous meeting, bringing him and her closer together for the better. You’ll be pulling for our heroes as they take down Thomas Haden Church’s black-and-blue highway patrolman, Agent Stone.
It’s not as clear who will play supporting roles. Neve Campbell, Richard Cabral, Mike Mitchell, Tahj Vaughans, and Lou Beatty Jr. will all appear as guests, but their specific roles have not been revealed.
Who is behind the TWISTED METAL TV show?
The production team for Twisted Metal, which hails from Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions, is also impressive. Stars Anthony Mackie and Will Arnett are executive producing alongside writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who are responsible for the Deadpool and Zombieland film series. Smith is not only the show’s showrunner but also an EP and writer. Multiple episodes will have Kitao Sakurai at the helm.
