Peacock announced today that Twisted Metal has been renewed for a second season. The news comes four months after the action comedy released its freshman run, which became the streamer's most-binged original in its first week as well as one of its top 3 series of all time.

"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," said showrunner and executive producer Michael Jonathan Smith. "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."

Based on the classic PlayStation video game series, Twisted Metal follows John Doe, a motor-mouthed outsider who is offered a chance at a better life if he can deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With help from an axe-wielding car thief named Quiet, John faces savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown behind the wheel of an all-too-familiar ice cream truck.
