Get ready for the ultimate car combat showdown! “Twisted Metal,” which made it onto our Top 10 Shows of 2023 list, is roaring back onto our screens for season 2. And will deliver the demolition derby-fueled mayhem fans have been craving. After a successful debut season, season 2 promises to unleash the essence of the iconic video game: a high-octane tournament where titans clash in a battle for survival.

Season 2 welcomes a cavalcade of beloved characters from the games: John Doe, Dollface, Mr. Grimm, and Axel. Prepare to witness their unique brand of mayhem come to life, from Dollface’s bubbly chaos to Mr. Grimm’s chilling brutality.

Season Two:

No more holding back! Season 2 dives headfirst into the heart of the “Twisted Metal” universe: the tournament itself. Showrunner Michael Jonathan Smith (“Cobra Kai”) promises a season built around this iconic event, ensuring an explosive season that fuels the ultimate showdown.

Buckle up for an explosive cocktail of action! Smith teases the prospect of seeing established characters colliding in a crucible of competition. Imagine the witty banter, the unexpected alliances, and the blood-pumping clashes – it’s a recipe for explosive entertainment.

“I love world-building and this felt like a cool opportunity to be like, ‘What is an American Lord of the Rings?’ What’s so fun about the way Tolkien writes — and a lot of the books that I love to read — is that I feel like I’m living in a world. I think this show could go on for as long as people want it to and I think that there’s tons more stories to tell in it, which is really exciting … I’m excited for you to see more. I think it’s gonna be wild.” Smith told Collider:

The Story:

While the tournament takes center stage, Smith assures fans that the season won’t be confined to the racetrack. Expect every episode to pulsate with the tournament’s gravity, even during quieter moments. This season promises a deeper exploration of the characters’ motivations, anxieties, and the dark humor that binds them in this twisted world.

Season two will further delve into the journey of John Doe (Anthony Mackie), a milkman who embarks on the Twisted Metal competition for a chance at a better life. Allies and adversaries will join him. Watch as John Doe, “Quiet” (Stephanie Beatriz), and Scream star Neve Campbell as they navigate the brutal arena of vehicular combat.

The Gaming Franchise:

The game that the series is based on was first released in 1995. It has appeared on various PlayStation consoles, including the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 3. By October 31, 2000, the series had sold a staggering 5 million copies, making it one of the most popular gaming franchises ever released.

No Finish Line in Sight:

The future of “Twisted Metal” is in your hands! The show’s creators are committed to keeping the engine running as long as fans keep cheering. Grab your popcorn, crank up the volume, and prepare to witness the ultimate demolition derby spectacle.

 After being Peacock’s most-watched exclusive comedy series that premiered in 2023, “Twisted Metal” season 2 promises to be a victory lap for fans, a high-octane spectacle for newcomers, and a testament to the enduring power of vehicular mayhem.

Here’s a look back at the trailer for season one of this fun, brutal, high-octane must-see series.
