After 6 years, My Big Fat Greek Wedding franchise returned this past September with its third installment. 

"My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3" featured many familiar faces from the franchise for a big fat family reunion that saw the Portokalos family travel to Greece to fulfill their late father's dying wish. 

With its theatrical runover, the movie from Focus Features has found a streaming home at Peacock and is expected to arrive at the streamer on November 3. 

The third entry was written and directed by the franchise’s creator Nia Vardalos and stars the Oscar-nominated screenwriter opposite John Corbett, Louis Mandylor, Elena Kampouris, Maria Vacratsis, Andrea Martin, Elias Kacavas, Gia Carides, Joey Fatone, and Melina Kotselou.

The first My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a box office anomaly and case study back in 2002.

The IFC Films pic ran as a platform release in fewer than 1,000 theaters for 17 weekends, initially $45M during that time before going north of that threshold to 2,000-plus locations and grossing a wild $241.4M domestic and $368.2M worldwide off a $5M production cost.

The sequel, released by Universal, premiered in 2016 and made $59.6M domestic and $90.6M worldwide, putting the romantic comedy franchise at $458.8M.

Tom Hanks, Wilson, and Gary Goetzman produced the third movie, with Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer, and Steven Shareshian serving as EPs. Focus Features has the U.S. on the pic, while Universal Pictures International handles overseas distribution.
