Monk Is Coming Back — Get Ready for an All-New Monk Movie on Peacock
Tony Shaloub and the rest of the original cast will return.
Everybody’s favorite OCD detective is back to his old tricks. Peacock has ordered Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie, based on the Emmy Award-winning, critically-acclaimed, fan-favorite USA comedy series. The movie will reunite original cast members Ted Levine (Leland Stottlemeyer), Traylor Howard (Natalie Teeger), Jason Gray-Stanford (Randall Disher), Melora Hardin (Trudy Monk), and Hector Elizondo (Dr. Neven Bell) with star Tony Shalhoub (Adrian Monk), who is also an executive producer. The original creative team, including creator, executive producer, and writer Andy Breckman, executive producer David Hoberman, and executive producer/director Randy Zisk are also on board.
In the movie, Monk returns to solve one last, very personal case involving his beloved step-daughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding. Sounds amazing already.
“When creator Andy Breckman came to us with a new Monk case set in present day, we immediately fell in love with this story all over again,” said Michael Sluchan, EVP, Movies, Kids, Daytime, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “The movie has the heart and humor of the original series with a contemporary relevance, and we’re overjoyed to work with the original creative team, including Andy, David Hoberman, Randy Zisk, the unparalleled Tony Shalhoub, and our partners at UCP, for what is sure to be a must-see movie event for Peacock audiences.”
“New and returning fans of Monk will love how this creative team was able to preserve all that we admire about Adrian Monk while bringing him into the present,” said Beatrice Springborn, President, UCP. “We can’t wait for Peacock viewers to experience this fresh, fun and imaginative film.”
Monk ran on USA for 125 episodes over eight seasons, with the series finale breaking ratings records as the most-watched cable drama at that time. The series won a total of eight Primetime Emmy Awards, one Golden Globe Award, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. Tony Shalhoub was Emmy-nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for eight consecutive years and won three times.
