“I have to give a Sweet Tooth-sized thank you to our incredible fans – I read every comment and was so blown away by everyone’s love, support, and rabid enthusiasm for a paper bag,” said showrunner, executive producer and writer Michael Jonathan Smith.

“We are beyond thankful we get to continue the story of John Doe, Quiet, and Sweet Tooth as they face off against familiar faces and new grim foes in the long-awaited Twisted Metal tournament. The mixtape is made, and I’m thrilled to get back on the road with our stellar cast and crew.”

Season one features executive producer and star Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and The Winter Soldier), Stephanie Beatriz (Encanto, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Joe Seanoa (AEW), with executive producer/star Will Arnett (LEGO Masters, Murderville) and Thomas Haden Church (Sideways, Divorce, Spider-Man: No Way Home).

Twisted Metal is a half-hour live-action TV series based on the classic PlayStation game series, a high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland) and written by Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai).

The first season is about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

With the help of a badass axe-wielding car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.

Twisted Metal premiered on July 27 with an audience score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes comprised from over 1000+ audience ratings and critics.
