An unrated cut of the hit horror movie M3gan is coming to Peacock, and it will be here very soon. The announcement comes by way of M3gan herself, who said in a video that she’s going to leak the unrated cut that the “corporate suits didn’t want you to see.”
The M3gan unrated cut arrives February 24 on Peacock. The unrated cut will include more “distressing violence and profanity and features never-before-seen bonus content.”

Screenwriter Akela Cooper told The Los Angeles Times back in January that the original cut of M3gan was “way gorier.” The script originally had a higher body count than what fans ended up seeing in the movie upon release, Cooper said.
“It wasn’t a Gabriel [in Malignant]-scale massacre, but she did kill a bunch more people, including a couple of characters whom [producer James Wan] was like, ‘I like what you did with those people, but I want them to live.’ I was merciless, but again, that is me. My humor is extremely dark.”
A sequel to M3gan, M3gan 2.0, is now in the works for release in 2025. Cooper is coming back to write the sequel, along with the stars of the first film–Allison Williams and Violet McGraw. Director Gerard Johnstone is also expected to return for the sequel.
