The Full Monty: Disney+ Will Reunite Cast From The Movie 25 Years Later For A New TV Series – Canceled + Renewed TV Shows
Get ready for more The full Monty. Disney+ reunites the cast of the film for a new series. Robert Carlyle, Mark Addy, Lesley Sharp, Hugo Speer, Paul Barber, Steve Huison, Wim Snape and Tom Wilkinson return to the series 25 years after the film’s release. The series will air on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ worldwide.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed the following about the plot of the series:
“The small screen return will follow the original group of brothers as they navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield and the crumbling health, education and employment sectors of society. The series will explore the brightest, dumbest, most human path where joint effort can still triumph over adversity. Whether there will be a stripping, Disney+ has not confirmed.
Simon Beaufoy, the screenwriter behind the original film, had the following to say about the series in a statement:
“We are delighted to bring all the Monty Men together again – now with a chaotic entourage of children, grandchildren, pets and matching hangers – to see what life is like in Sheffield 25 years later. .”
Lee Mason, Director of Scripted Content EMEA at Disney, also spoke about the return of The full Monty:
“Twenty-five years ago Simon introduced us to a group of funny, fearless and resilient unemployed working class men from Sheffield and the world fell in love with them. We’re thrilled to reunite the original cast of this all-new series on Disney+ to catch up on these iconic characters and what they’ve been up to since we last saw them on stage in all their glory, and we can’t wait to present a host of exciting new faces and characters.
A first date for the return of The full Monty will be announced later.
