The M3GAN sequel now has a title and a release date. “M3GAN 2.0” will now be released on January 17, 2025, with screenwriter Akela Cooper confirmed to return to write M3GAN 2.
Furthermore, M3GAN stars Allison Williams and Violet McGraw will reprise their roles as Gemma and her niece Cady (respectively), who became a surrogate family after Cady’s parents (Gemma’s sister) died in a horrific car crash, with the M3GAN robot becoming Cady’s ill-fated method of coping.

Allison Williams is reportedly moving up from executive producer on the first M3GAN film to the full-fledged producer on the second film, alongside Jason Blum (Blumhouse) and James Wan (Atomic Monster).
M3GAN director Gerard Johnstone is reportedly not yet committed to returning for the sequel, but producers are hoping to strike a deal to bring him back. M3GAN debuted in theatres on January 6th and has since grossed $95.3 million.

While that figure may appear lower than what most consider the bottom line for a blockbuster film ($100 million), M3GAN was made on a $12 million budget and has been a successful franchise starter.
From The Conjuring and its spinoffs (Annabelle) to Insidious, The Purge, Paranormal Activity, and so many other notable horror films in between, both Jason Blum and James Wan are experts at spending little to build big horror franchises (Sinister, Malicious, Happy Death Day, Ouija, Oculus, etc.).
M3GAN is a perfect horror icon for the new digital era, terrifying everyone from teenagers to parents with its nightmare vision of technology and commodities running amok in modern kids’ lives.
