As promised alongside yesterday’s poster reveal, here’s your very first look at Twisted Metal’s television adaption, which is scheduled to start streaming on Peacock in the US from 27th July, 2023. The trailer is the very definition of a teaser, showing star Anthony Mackie getting into his car, selecting a CD for his Sony stereo, and riding into the apocalypse guns glazing. The stinger then ends with a brief shot of Sweet Tooth.

The series will consist of ten episodes, each 30 minutes in length, and will adopt an “action comedy” vibe. Looking at this teaser trailer, it’s clear that PS Productions is going for a campy, corny vibe, which is going to be difficult to nail – but could potentially be entertaining if executed well. Unfortunately, there’s not enough on offer here to draw any firm conclusions either way.
