The vehicular combat series from PlayStation Twisted Metal is finally making its comeback- well, in a different way. Sony revealed the exciting news at their CES 2022 keynote, mentioning that a new TV show based on the series is in production, making this the first time in 10 years since anything related to Twisted Metal has been worked on.

The news of a television series for the game in production has always been afloat, dating as far back as 2019 when Sony Pictures CEO Tony Vinciquerra confirmed in a Q&A session that PlayStation Productions had started to work on a Twisted Metal television series.

Not much has been revealed about the production of the series apart from the announcement, but it is interesting to see that Sony and PlayStation are actively greenlighting various shows and television series based on various PlayStation franchises, with Uncharted getting a live-action movie soon, and a The Last of Us television show in development at HBO.

The Twisted Metal series has not made much noise in recent years. The last big major release was back in 2012 with Twisted Metal Black, which was made by developers Eat Sleep Play for PlayStation 3, and acted as a reboot for the franchise and also enjoyed some favorable fanfare. There have also been rumors of a new Twisted Metal game in development at Destruction AllStars studio, Lucid Games. It is possible that the television series is being produced to coincide with the launch of the rumored game.

Whatever the case is, Twisted Metal fans have something to look forward to in the upcoming months.
