When will Five Nights at Freddy’s arrive on streaming?

Five Nights at Freddy’s was made available to stream on Peacock starting at 8 PM ET on October 26, 2023.

At the time of writing, Universal has not announced when the video game adaptation would receive DVD and Blu-Ray versions.

In an interview with IGN, Jason Blum revealed why he chose to work on the film.

“I really love a challenge,” he said. “Scott had been working on it as a movie with a studio for a while and that didn’t work out, this is many years ago. Everyone said we could never get the movie done, including, by the way, internally in my company. I was made fun of for pursuing this, this thing that could never happen, and that always lights a fire under me to say, ‘I bet I can do this.’”
