The first season of the Twisted Metal TV series has concluded filming.
The series, which will star Will Arnett, Anthony Mackie and Samoa Joe has seemingly been completed, according to a tweet from showrunner Michael Jonathan Smith.
The tweet also showed off an ice sculpture, presumably from a wrap party, bearing the classic Twisted Metal logo.

The show arrives ahead of a planned Twisted Metal video game reboot, which VGC exclusively reported earlier this year is in active development at Sony’s Firesprite studio, after moving from original developer Lucid Games, according to sources.
Joining Anthony Mackie (Falcon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) in the TV series is Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Samoa Joe (AEW), Thomas Haden Church (Sandman in Spider-Man 3), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz in Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott in Scream).
The show, which is written and executive produced by Michael Jonathan Smith (Cobra Kai), stars Mackie as John Doe, an amnesiac who “talks as fast as he drives”, according to a statement by Peacock.
Doe has to drive across a post-apocalyptic wasteland to deliver supplies to an outpost and will be aided by car thief Quiet (Beatriz), while being pursued by patrolman Agent Stone (Church).
Peacock announced in February that it had picked up the PlayStation Productions show and given it a series order.
Twisted Metal is the second TV series from PlayStation Productions, a studio formed by Sony Interactive Entertainment to adapt its original game properties for film and TV.
It was also confirmed this week that The Umbrella Academy showrunner Steve Blackman is developing Netflix’s Horizon TV show, based on the PlayStation franchise.
The first TV series is HBO’s The Last of Us, which will star Game of Thrones actors Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie. The first footage of which was shown during a compilation of upcoming HBO shows.
