‘Halloween Kills’ will stream on Peacock the same day it hits theaters


Make sure your doors are locked and your Peacock subscription is up-to-date: Michael Myers is bringing Halloween Kills to both theaters and the NBCUniversal streaming service Oct. 15.

Universal Pictures announced Thursday that director David Gordon Green’s long-awaited sequel to Halloween (2018) will debut on the at-home entertainment platform at no additional cost to Peacock Premium subscribers. The service costs $4.99 per month with ads, and $9.99 per month without.

The day-and-date release of this high-profile slasher marks another chance for Peacock to up its game in the streaming wars after struggling to gain subscribers in early 2021. (They picked up subscribers during the Tokyo Olympics, but have yet to report how many of those have stayed on post-Games.)

Like the popular 2018 reboot before it, Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis as scream queen Laurie Strode opposite James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle, who team up to play Michael Myers (also known as The Shape). Judy Greer and Andi Matichak will also return as Karen and Allyson — two new generations of Strode women — with Will Patton reprising his role as Haddonfield’s Officer Frank Hawkins. Thomas Mann and Anthony Michael Hall also join the cast.

Halloween Kills is in theaters and on Peacock Oct. 15.
