A little over two years after the first details emerged, the Twisted Metal-based TV series has a scheduled air date of July 27.

This half-hour-long, 10-episode adaptation of the primarily PlayStation-exclusive vehicular combat series, now somewhat alarmingly approaching its 30th anniversary, tells the story of a motor-mouthed outsider (played by Anthony Mackie) who is offered an opportunity. into a better life, as long as he can deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland.


Sony first promoted turning Twisted Metal into a TV show back in 2019, but it wasn’t until 2021 that the wheels were officially turned. Peacock’s subscription service has since placed an order for the action comedy, while Cobra Kai’s Michael Jonathan Smith has signed on to executive produce and write the scripts, which are based on a concept by writing duo Zombieland. and Deadpool Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

As for the cast, Stephanie Beatriz, Thomas Haden Church and Neve Campbell have been confirmed to star alongside Mackie, and Will Arnett is voicing the show’s version of Twisted Metal’s iconic clown-faced antagonist, Sweet Tooth.

Twisted Metal’s July 27 airdate arrives via Esports Extras(which also says a trailer for the series is coming tomorrow), but there’s no word yet on when the show will air internationally. Peacock has a UK channel, available via Sky and Now, so it seems likely that’s the place to go when it finally shows up.


Peacock’s Twisted Metal series is, of course, just a small part of an ever-growing line of PlayStation games getting the live-action treatment.
