Five Nights At Freddy’s is Set To Debut Simultaneously In Theaters and Peacock In October


The Release Date is finally set. Five Nights at Freddy’s is ready to scare up some fun at home and Movie Theaters. Fans can expect it on Peacock and in theaters in October.

Universal Pictures made an ambitious announcement regarding the Blumhouse-Produced adaption of the popular horror video game series, set to premiere in theaters and on the studio’s streaming service on October 27th, 2023.

It has become a tradition for Universal Pictures for a studio to have a day-and-date release for their horror line. This marked the third time Universal Pictures has set up a hybrid debut for a Blumhouse production in October. For example, Halloween Kills (2021) and Halloween Ends (2022) landed on Peacock the same day they debuted in Theaters.

Warner serve as Executive Producers.
