Peacock’s Twisted Metal is an adaptation of Sony’s video game of the same name and consists of ten episodes. Although the show isn’t a straight copy, several of the game’s characters make appearances. The lead actors, Anthony Mackie and Stephanie Beatriz, are fantastic together on screen. In the first season, Peacock released all episodes simultaneously. Many people like the show because of its bright and whimsical world. But will there be a Season 2 of Twisted Metal?
After finishing this episode, you may be curious as to whether or not the show will continue. What we’ve learned so far is as follows.
Twisted Metal Season 2 Renewal Status
Neither the show’s renewal nor the production of a second season has been confirmed by Peacock. Given Mackie’s pace, even if it is declared, we wouldn’t anticipate it to appear till 2025 at the earliest.
The streaming provider will make their selection based on audience feedback and the show’s watching figures.
However, initial indications are promising. Having received mostly positive reviews, the new comedy series (yes, it really is a comedy series) is expected to rise rapidly in the Peacock streaming ratings. The circumstances of the first season also suggest another NOS-fueled journey, setting up a plethora of potential storylines for a second run.
Twisted Metal Season 2 Release Date
The second season of Twisted Metal may premiere in the first half of 2025. The first season was filmed from May to August 2022, and the show premiered in July 2023, therefore we can assume a release window of early to mid-2025 for the second season. That’s assuming the same amount of time is spent on production, but it’s possible that the second season will premiere sooner or later than the first owing to factors like strikes, logistical challenges, or the need to devote more time due to the show’s expanded scope.
There is no word that production on Season 2 has begun as of this writing. Peacock is probably gauging the first season’s performance before deciding whether to fund a second.
Twisted Metal Storyline
John Doe (Mackie) is a “Milkman” in Twisted Metal. A Milkman is a type of courier who never sleeps since he is constantly making deliveries.
The show takes place in a dystopian future roughly 20 years after a mystery bug crippled all global technological networks. This caused widespread panic and disorder in society. All the convicts were sent beyond the walled cities to fend for themselves. Raven, New San Francisco’s chief operating officer, calls John inside the city.
For him, this is already a significant problem because it is unprecedented. If he agrees to transport a parcel for her from New Chicago, far to the East, she will grant him permanent residency in the city. Immediately after being asked, John agreed to make the delivery and headed off on his way. He befriends a troubled outlaw he calls Quiet along the road. Initially formed for practical reasons, their friendship develops into something deeper as they face arduous obstacles and encounter fascinating people of the post-apocalyptic era on their travels together.

Twisted Metal Season 2 Plot
Since the second season of Twisted Metal has not been renewed, its plot remains a mystery. The fact that the show appears to be adapting Twisted Metal Black, the fourth game in the series, rather than the 1995 original Twisted Metal, and that several story details from season 1 have been changed from the game, only adds to the confusion.Since the video game remake Twisted Metal Black was a one-off, there is no canonical sequel to the first season of the show based on the games. Season 2 of Twisted Metal can adopt the same method, though, because the show’s authors have clearly taken inspiration from all of the games.
