It’s fair to say little was expected of 2023’s Blumhouse offering M3GAN. The tale of a synthetic human gone awry seemed a little too close to Chucky for some fans tastes.

However, with its glorious sense of humour and strong female characters, M3GAN quickly won audiences over. Receiving universal praise and raking in $181 million at the box-office, it became the little horror movie that could.

The movie’s stellar performance in January is almost unheard of for a genre project. Needless to say, a sequel was quickly announced following this success.

M3GAN 2.0 was initially announced to hit screens on January 17th 2025, exactly two years after the original. However, now it has been announced that the project has been delayed by four months, with a new release date of May 16th 2025.

No reason was given for the change in release date, but avoiding box-office competition or wanting a little extra time to work on a script are the usual culprits.

To that end, we know M3GAN scribe Akela Cooper will return to write the script. Joining her will be actors Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, and Amie Donald, all expected to reprise their roles from the original.

Nothing has been issued in terms of plot details just yet. However, executive producer James Wan has said he’s “curious to see where sequels will go.”

So, M3GAN 2.0 will still be kung-fu dancing her way onto screens, just a little later than anticipated. That’s May 16th 2025, and we’ll be here to report any further changes with this highly anticipated sequel.
