Is Candyman streaming?

No, Candyman is not streaming right now. However, the original 1992 Candyman is streaming on Peacock, Candyman: Farewell to Flesh is streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and Candyman 3: Day of the Dead is streaming on Hulu and EPIX. If you don’t want to go to the movies to watch the 2021 film, you can at least do a Candyman marathon at home!

Will Candyman come to Netflix?

Most likely, Candyman will not go to Netflix because it is a Universal Pictures film, and they have their own streaming service at Peacock.

When will Candyman start streaming?

Candyman will probably not start streaming until 2022. The film will likely go to Peacock, although some Univeral films are available on HBO Max.

The good news is, Candyman will be available to rent and/or purchase on VOD much sooner. Movies are going from theater to VOD much faster these days due to the pandemic, so anticipate being able to pay to watch at home within the next month or two.
