If you’re in the U.S., you don’t have to go to theaters to see Five Nights at Freddy’s. That’s right, FNAF will be available at home, straight from NBC streaming service Peacock.

Have a Peacock subscription, and want to know when you can watch FNAF? Here’s what you need to know.

FNAF’s movie premiere date on Peacock

FNAF will start screening in theaters on October 27 in the U.S., two days after the film hits U.K. theaters (October 25). U.S. fans can also catch the film, which clocks in at 109 minutes, on Peacock starting October 27. Yes, FNAF has a simultaneous release window across both theaters and streaming.

It’s unclear when, exactly, FNAF will drop online. Some fans have speculated the film will hit Peacock as early as October 26, with outlet CNET claiming the film will premiere at 7pm CT on Thursday. For the time being, the official Peacock site simply states the film will be available to stream on October 27.

Theoretically, the film might be out on Peacock as soon as midnight on October 27, but we simply don’t know yet.

It’s a bit unclear at the moment whether FNAF will be available in the U.K. on Peacock, either. The official Universal Pictures U.K. page for FNAF states that fans can see the film “in cinemas,” with no reference to any online streaming platforms. In comparison, the official Universal page for FNAF in the U.S. states the film can be seen “in theaters and streaming on Peacock” on October 27.

So for the time being, it seems that U.K. fans will have to make their way to a theater to see the upcoming horror film. Luckily, Brits will get their chance to watch the film a little earlier than their American counterparts. So if FNAF remains a cinema-exclusive release in the U.K., it may be worth it for European audiences in the end.
