Recently, MGM had to make a shift in their release strategy for the “The Addams Family 2” as it went from a traditional theatrical release to a day and date release that gives families the option of seeing it in a theater or on VOD at home. This decision was made due to the ongoing pandemic and the sudden surge of the Delta variant. But no matter where you decide to see it, the “The Addams Family 2” makes its debut on October 1, 2021.
