Twisted Metal is now streaming exclusively on Paramount+ in Canada.
The 10-episode TV series, which adapts the PlayStation vehicular combat games of the same name, first premiered on Peacock in the U.S. on July 27th. All episodes dropped on that service then, and now, they’re all on Paramount+ in Canada as of August 10th.
Created by Rhett Reese and Canada’s Paul Wernick (Deadpool), Twisted Metal follows a man, John Doe, who’s tasked with delivering a cryptic package in a post-apocalyptic wasteland filled with ruthless marauders and destructive vehicles.
Anthony Mackie stars as John Doe, while Stephanie Beatriz, Guelph, Ontario’s Neve Campbell, wrestler Samoa Joe/Toronto’s Will Arnett (the body and voice of Sweet Tooth, respectively), Richard Cabral and Thomas Haden Church co-star.
Twisted Metal is one of many PlayStation adaptations that Sony has been developing. The most prominent, of course, is the Alberta-shot The Last of Us, the first season of which ran earlier this year and garnered massive acclaim. At least two more seasons are in the works. Last year also saw the release of the Tom Holland-led film Uncharted, which received poor reviews but performed well at the box office, with Sony indicating it was the start of a franchise.
Looking ahead, Sony also has the Gran Turismo movie set for August, which is based on the true story of a video game player who became a professional racer. The company is also working with Prime Video on a God of War series, Netflix on a Horizon show and John Wick director Chad Stahelski on a Ghost of Tsushima movie.
Interestingly, though, there hasn’t been a new Twisted Metal game since the eponymous PS3 reboot in 2012. Instead, PlayStation has been promoting the fact that the original PlayStation game is playable through its PS Plus series. It remains to be seen whether the TV show will lead to a new Twisted Metal game.
