NBC revealed that it would be titled Mr. Monk’s Last Case: A Monk Movie.
It will center back on Adrian Monk, as he returns to solve one final, very personal case involving his beloved stepdaughter Molly, a journalist preparing for her wedding.
Tony will be joined for the reunion by original stars Ted Levine and Jason Gray-Stanford.
Traylor Howard, who played Natalie Teeger, Melora Hardin, who was Adrian’s deceased wife, Trudy Monk, and Hector Elizondo would also return for the flick.
There’s no word on if Alona Tal would be back as Molly, or if Bitty Schram would return as Sharona, Monk’s first nurse/assistant.
“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,” Michael Sluchan, EVP of Movies, Kids and Daytime programming at NBCUniversal, shared in a statement via TV Line. “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.”
It’s rumored that production will start in May.
Tony‘s current series, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, is ending this year.
