M3GAN 2 release date, cast, plot, trailer, and more news

The evil AI doll is dancing back to screens as soon as possible, so let's look within the circuitry for info on the M3GAN 2 release date.

M3GAN 2 release date

Nobody really expected a horror film about a murderous AI companion doll to set the world alight, especially as it arrived in the January release graveyard. But M3GAN danced her way into all of our hearts, TikTok accounts, and nightmares, so the inevitable M3GAN 2 release date is now on the horizon.

The good news is that M3GAN director Gerard Johnston has already revealed that he’s more than down to direct some new movies and turn one of the best horror movies of 2023 into a franchise. The M3GAN ending even provides scope for how a sequel could happen, so with all that in mind, we’re looking forward to the M3GAN 2 release date. Fortunately, we know quite a bit about it already.

M3GAN 2 release date speculation

The M3GAN 2 release date is Friday January 17, 2025 and we know it will be called M3GAN 2.0. So that gives you some time to get those dancing shoes ready.

This was announced in January 2023, mere weeks after the first movie opened. It looks like Jason Blum and James Wan will be banking on having another January hit on their hands. Let’s just hope the 2023 Writers Strike doesn’t delay things.

Gerard Johnstone, who directed the movie, told Variety he’s very excited about the prospect of returning, though he hasn’t been confirmed as director just yet. He said: “There are so many ideas that we had and facets of M3GAN’s personality that we wanted to explore. I totally think there’s there’s more to say.”

M3GAN 2 cast speculation

It’s good news because we already know that Allison Williams and Violet McGraw are returning for M3GAN 2 as Gemma and Cady.

We’re not yet sure whether Amie Donald will return as the physical form of M3GAN, but we can guess that Jenna Davis will be back to provide the voice. Other than that, we expect plenty of new victims for her to torment. The best slasher movies need a healthy supply of disposable characters.

M3GAN 2 confirmed cast list:

  • Allison Williams as Gemma
  • Violet McGraw as Cady

What will M3GAN 2 be about?

M3GAN producer James Wan revealed that the sequel will lean into the threat of AI and explore the “AI universe even further”.

Wan told Empire Magazine that “M3GAN is coming back in a big way”. He added: “The first film came out just at the right time, and we’re definitely leaning into that on the next one. We’re exploring the AI universe even further.”

The last scene in the first movie hints that M3GAN’s programming is still active. Although her body is destroyed, her ‘soul’ still exists and is still capable of causing havoc.

The first film already established that M3GAN can interfere with nearby devices —and since she appears to be inhabiting Gemma’s home devices, she and Cady may well continue to be her targets in the next film. If this happens, it’ll probably be one of two scenarios: either M3GAN is still committed to “protecting” Cady by any means possible, or she wants revenge on her and Gemma for trying to support her.

Is there a M3GAN 2 trailer?

Sorry, there isn’t a trailer for M3GAN 2 just yet as the movie hasn’t begun shooting. 

However, you can take a little look at what an even more off-kilter version of M3GAN 2 might not look like with this Saturday Night Live sketch starring Aubrey Plaza. Now, this would be one of the best movies ever made… probably.
