Samoa Joe's Twisted Metal will return for a second season

Samoa Joe will be returning to his ice cream truck with the announcement that Twisted Metal will be returning for a second season.

The TV adaptation of the classic video game series premiered in 2022, with Joe playing franchise icon Sweet Tooth, a demented killer clown in an ice cream truck.

Series two was formally announced by star and series lead Anthony Mackie during the 2023 Game Awards, with broadcaster Peacock issuing the following press release:

“Peacock's high-octane action-comedy TWISTED METAL has been renewed for a second season. The series comes from Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

“TWISTED METAL premiered on July 27 getting off to a fast start, establishing itself as our most-binged original in its first week and currently ranks among Peacock's top three originals of all time as it continues to attract new viewers every week.

“Quote from Michael Jonathan Smith (Showrunner, Executive Producer, Writer): "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. 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.”
