The new queen bee of killer dolls is rebooting with a sequel in M3GAN 2.0. Here is everything we know about the movie, from the Megan 2 release date to the cast.

The perfect balance of terror and camp, M3GAN shocked and pleasantly surprised horror fans, surging to a healthy box office return and raving critical reviews – not to mention plenty of viral videos of that dance scene.

With such a positive reception, it seemed almost a certainty that Blumhouse would greenlight a second adventure for M3GAN, especially given the uncertain fate she met in the original movie.

Here is everything we know so far about M3GAN 2.0.

M3GAN 2.0 release date

M3GAN 2.0 will be released in theatres on June 27, 2025.

The film was initially set for a January 17, 2025 release but was hit with delays.

Who could be in the M3GAN 2.0 cast?

The stars of the original, Allison Williams and Violet McGraw, will both be in M3GAN 2.0, but there’s no full cast list.

We expect Jenna Davis and Amie Donald, who were responsible for bringing the doll to life, back again too.

In addition, screenwriter Akela Cooper will also be returning to write the sequel. Director Gerald Johnson has not yet signed on but The Hollywood Reporter’s sources say that “producers hope to make a deal with him.”

Is there a M3GAN 2.0 trailer?

There is no M3GAN 2.0 trailer. It’s likely to be released a couple of months before the film’s June 2025 release date.

What do we know about the plot?

As of now, the plot of M3GAN 2.0 is still unknown, as the script is still in the works. James Wan said it will lean more heavily into AI fears.

During a November 2023 interview with Empire Magazine [via Collider], Wan revealed that he will lean into the AI anxiety angle, “It’s early yet, but M3GAN is coming back in a big way. The first film came just at the right time [when concerns about AI were mounting], and we’re definitely leaning into that on the next one. We’re exploring the AI universe even further.”

Since the original M3GAN doll appeared to be destroyed at the end of the original, it’s unclear whether the sequel would feature a resurrection of the original or perhaps a transfer of M3GAN’s consciousness into another doll.

Given that both Williams and McGraw are returning, it’s likely M3GAN will be seeking revenge on Gemma and Cady, perhaps looking to reconnect with her best friend.

Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse Productions, took to the stage at CinemaCon in April 2023 to discuss the project, and while he kept quiet about plot details, he does believe M3GAN has a long life ahead of her.

He told attendants that “hopefully we’ll see many M3GANs… to come.”
