She's the scariest doll since Chucky, but is M3GAN on Netflix yet? Where can you stream the campy, creepy horror movie?
M3GAN premiered in theaters on Friday, January 6 (who says horror has to be relegated to the best Halloween movies?), and was a hit with audiences, scoring $45 million worldwide against a budget of $12 million in its opening weekend. (So much so that, yes, we're officially getting a M3GAN 2.0, slated for release on January 17, 2025.) In particular, a clip of M3GAN the doll dancing to Taylor Swift's “It's Nice to Have a Friend" in the movie's trailer went positively viral on social media and became the first major meme of 2023.
But how can you watch M3GAN from the comfort of your own couch? We have all of the streaming info you need for the must-see horror movie.
Is 'M3gan' on Netflix?
Alas, M3GAN is not currently available to watch on Netflix. However, you will finally be able to stream the tech-horror title at home beginning on Friday, February 24, when the movie hits Peacock.
Both the theatrical PG-13 version and an unrated cut of M3GAN—we can't even imagine how much goriness and great dancing there'll be in the latter—will be available to stream exclusively on the platform, which means you will need a Peacock subscription plan to partake.
Current Peacock subscription plans include the ad-supported Premium plan for $4.99 per month or the commercial-free Premium Plus plan for $9.99 per month.
When is the 'M3gan' streaming release date?
The official streaming release date for M3GAN is Friday, February 24. New releases are typically added to Peacock at 12am PT/3am ET.
'M3gan' plot: what is it about?
"M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a life-like doll programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by brilliant toy-company roboticist Gemma (Get Out’s Allison Williams), M3GAN can listen and watch and learn as she becomes friend and teacher, playmate and protector, for the child she is bonded to," reads the movie's official plot synopsis.
"When Gemma suddenly becomes the caretaker of her orphaned 8-year-old niece, Cady (Violet McGraw, The Haunting of Hill House), Gemma’s unsure and unprepared to be a parent. Under intense pressure at work, Gemma decides to pair her M3GAN prototype with Cady in an attempt to resolve both problems—a decision that will have unimaginable consequences."

Does 'M3gan' have a post-credit scene?
There is no post-credit scene, which means once those final credits roll, you simply get to go home with nightmare-inducing thoughts of that villainous robot doll and her freaky acapella singing. Enjoy!
